Keith Urban and Guy Sebastian are returning to coach The Voice, in its new outing on Seven, to be joined by Jessica Mauboy and British singer Rita Ora.
Ora has previously coached on The Voice UK in 2015 and been a guest judge on The X Factor UK.
Keith Urban said: “The stars have finally aligned again! Ten years after spinning in the first season, and just before getting back on stage around the world, I’ve been invited back alongside a very cool and musically diverse panel.”
Rita Ora said: “I love The Voice and I absolutely adore Australia so this is a match made in heaven. Having been a coach on the UK series, I know just how powerful it can be in making dreams come true. I can’t wait to find Australia’s next superstar.”
Guy Sebastian said: “The evolution of The Voice in 2021 is genuinely exciting. I am so happy to be working alongside these amazing coaches. I have known Jess for a long time, I am a huge admirer of Keith and Rita is a great talent. I really feel like this panel will genuinely nurture a new generation of artists.”
Jessica Mauboy said: “I’m so proud of the talent that exists in this country. I know firsthand exactly how life-changing a show like this can be, so I’m honoured to be part of such an experienced team of coaches and I’m looking forward to some amazing chair-turning moments.”
Seven’s Network Director of Programming Angus Ross said: “A show as extraordinary as The Voice deserves superstars as its coaches and that is what we will deliver in 2021. Keith, Rita, Guy and Jess are the best of the best and we are thrilled they have chosen to mentor a such a talented group of singers.
“We can’t wait to bring the new-look series of The Voice to Seven, where it will join our other hit shows including Big Brother, Farmer Wants A Wife, SAS Australia, Holey Moley and many more.
“Combined with a revitalised and more dynamic format, ground-breaking new design, and most importantly phenomenal artists delivering incredible performances, The Voice promises to be one of the TV events of 2021.”
ITV Studios Australia CEO and Managing Director, David Mott, added: “We are tremendously excited by the fantastic new line-up of internationally acclaimed coaches for The Voice in 2021. This will undoubtedly be a series like no other! We seriously cannot wait to bring this brand new season to audiences on Seven – it’s going to be phenomenal.”
The 10th season of The Voice will be hosted by Sonia Kruger in 2021.
