So much for those other rumors.

“I’m so excited to join ‘The Voice’ at NBC,” Kelly says. “We’ve gone back and forth about a role as a coach for years, but the timing hasn’t been right until now. I have always loved appearing on the show as an adviser or performer and established an amazing relationship with the network during my Christmas special. I can’t wait to turn my chair and see the faces of up-and-coming artists and provide them with the help and support they’ve needed to break into the industry. Watch out Shelton, I’m comin’ to win!!”

The news comes hot off the heels of speculation that Kelly would be tapped to judge the new ABC revival of American Idol. With her just announced deal with NBC, any possibility for her to sign on for the Idol reboot has been squashed.
