According to a report by the wrap, singers Miley Cyrus and Alicia Keys will join “The Voice” as judges next season while singer-producer Pharrell Williams will leave in an NBC shake-up of the coaches on its hit show.
Country singer Blake Shelton and Adam Levine have renewed their deals as coaches, according to multiple sources close to the show. Williams will be in the mix as NBC figures out its coaching panel beyond next season.
Cyrus has signed for a “megabucks” deal according to one individual close to the deal. She served as an advisor during the current season.
According to insiders The other judges, Shelton and Adam Levine, make about $13 million per season.
The country star, Shelton, will be the longest-tenured judge on the top-rated show and is considered key to bringing in a country music-loving audience.
Cyrus has been serving as a key advisor on the show’s Season 10. Keys, a 15-time Grammy winner, served as an advisor on Season 7.
Levine and Shelton have spent all 10 seasons together in those oversized “Voice” chairs, with Aguilera doing six between the boys. CeeLo Green, an original judge, was there for four seasons, as has Pharrell.
Usher, Shakira and Gwen Stefani have done a pair of seasons apiece.
The lone remaining question surrounds that fourth chair. Stefani most recently served, so perhaps she’s the obvious choice.
“The Voice” is a ratings powerhouse for NBC, continuing strong this season.
