Kylie Minogue

Donata Wenders for Magnum

All hail The Voice U.K.'s latest judge!

It has just been announced that Kylie Minogue will join returning stars and Sir Tom Jones on the singing competition show's panel. It was previously revealed that former coaches Jessie J and Danny O'Donoghue of The Script would not be returning.

And while a fourth coach has yet to be announced, we're pretty sure that Miss Minogue brings oodles of star power all on her own.

The Australian singer tweeted her joy about the new job early Wednesday morning.

"#LOVERS I'm excited to announce that I'll be coaching on @BBCTheVoiceUK next season," she wrote.

She also gushed on to BBC on the show's official blog:

"I'm very excited to become a Coach on The Voice. I love the concept of the show and have been an avid viewer of both series. The search for new talent is such an important aspect of the music industry and The Voice gives us all a part to play in that.

Will I be competitive? Probably more than even I imagine! Watch this space!"

In an ironic twist, her sister Dannii Minogue had previously appeared on the rival show The X Factor.

The third season of the massively successful series is slated to return to TV in January 2014.
