Joining the two new American coaches will be award-winning Australian singer-songwriter Kate Miller-Heidke. “I am so excited to be joining The Voice, and to sit on the panel alongside these incredible singers,” she explained.

“The art and craft of singing has been at the centre of my life and I feel like I have learned some things that might be of help to young or inexperienced performers. I’ll be looking for people with the soul of an artist; people with something to say; who make you lean in and want to know more about them. And I’m really looking forward to getting to know the other coaches. Bring it on!”
