Miley Cyrus, Alicia Keys Join ‘The Voice’ Season 11 as Pharrell Williams, Christina Aguilera Depart

Miley Cyrus and Alicia Keys are in and Pharrell Williams and Christina Aguilera are out as coaches for the next season of NBC’s “The Voice.”

NBC confirmed the new panelists for the show’s 11th season in the fall on Friday evening.

“The musical expertise and energy these two incredibly talented women will bring to the show is remarkable,” said Paul Telegdy, NBC’s president of alternative and late-night programming. “We’re thrilled that they’ll be joining Adam and Blake in what we know will be a magical 11th season.”

Cyrus and Keys will join “Voice” mainstays Adam Levine and Blake Shelton when the show revs up its winter cycle in September. Williams and Aguilera may well be back for future editions of “Voice” as the show has a history of bringing coaches back, with an alumni roster that includes Usher, Shakira, Gwen Stefani and CeeLo Green.

Before NBC could get the official word out, Cyrus let loose with the news via Twitter Friday evening.

Cyrus is already set to appear on the current tenth season of “The Voice” as a mentor to all the contestant groups. Keys served as a mentor on the show’s seventh season in 2014.

Season 10 of “The Voice” premiered Feb. 29, drawing a 3.4 Nielsen rating among adults 18-49 in live-plus-same day numbers — down 17% from its debut the previous February. The most recent episode Tuesday drew a 2.5.

While “The Voice” has seen its ratings creep downward, it remains NBC’s highest-rated non-football program and a key programming piece for the network, which is first among all broadcasters in 18-49 ratings thus far this season. NBC has routinely deployed the show as a lead-in for its most promising new series, helping to launch programs such as “The Blacklist.”

Cyrus’ most recent album, “Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz ,” was released in August. The singer rose to prominence as the star of the Disney Channel series “Hannah Montana.” Cyrus recently celebrated the show’s 10-year anniversary with an Instagram post in which she encouraged “Hannah Montana” fans to “Get real drunk and remember #HM4EVR” as a form of celebration.

R&B superstar Keys stormed into the music business in the early 2000’s with the smash hit “Fallin’.” She has collected some 15 Grammy wins to date, including best new artist in 2001 and song of the year for “Fallin’.”

Keys’ has also been seen in the current season of Fox’s “Empire.” Her acting work includes roles in 2008’s “The Secret Life of Bees” and 2007’s “The Nanny Diaries.”
