2023 TV Week Gold Logie Award-winner Sonia Kruger will be back as host, presiding over the competition as a new group of aspiring artists take to The Voice stage hoping to turn their singing dreams into reality.

Announcing the news was LeAnn Rimes, best known for her hit Can’t Fight the Moonlight, who made an exclusive appearance on Sunrise.

“I’m thrilled, I’ve literally been holding this secret for so long, and it feels so good to finally let it out,” she said.

“I got signed when I was 11, I’ve been so I’ve been in this business for 30 years and I think I have a lot of wisdom to pass on.”

Rimes said the nurturing side of being a coach will come easy to her, sharing that she is “at a part of my life where it feels very natural to me”.

She said she was looking forward to working with the other three judges, remarking that “it’s going to be a great group of people.

“They all seem so kind and we’re going to have a great time.”

Rimes said the opportunity was “a reflection of the love and support I’ve received from my Australian fans throughout my career.

“I look forward to returning the love, sharing my experiences, and hearing fresh, promising talent.”

Meanwhile Adam Lambert said: “I am thrilled to be joining the panel of The Voice this season. I have such great memories in Australia and can’t wait to spend some time down under!

“Australia has contributed some iconic talents and artists to pop culture, it’ll be fun to coach the next generation of talent.

“You can expect some killer song selections, fashion fashion fashion, and of course, a win for Team Adam!”

Kate Miller-Heidke said she was “so excited” to join the show and sit alongside her fellow coaches.

“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!”

The sole returning judge Guy Sebastian said it was “so good” to be back on the talent show.

“Adding the insane talent of LeAnn, Kate and Adam on the show this year is going to be killer!!

“They’re all such amazing, world-class artists who I know will bring something fresh and incredible to the season. Let’s go!”

The new season of The Voice goes into production this month and will premiere later this year on Channel 7 and 7plus.
