Australia’s own Kylie Minogue and will.i.am ofThe VoiceUK will replace Seal and Delta Goodrem, alongside Ricky Martin and Joel Madden.

“I am so excited to be coming home and being a coach onThe Voice,” Kylie says.

“I look forward to spending time in Australia, getting up close and personal with new talent and working alongside the three amazing artists: Ricky, Joel and will.i.am.”

Seal and Delta have bowed out to focus on their music careers.

“I wish all the coaches and contestants well,” Seal said in a statement.

“To my Australian fans, sorry to not be back for this upcoming season, but I wanted this window of time to focus on a number of exciting career priorities – a new album, a TV and internet project and, most importantly, precious time with my children.”

While Delta plans to focus on her music career too, she has been announced as a coach onThe Voice Kids, the children’s version of the show, alongside Joel Madden. The show is set to air in 2014.

“I am so excited to be a part of the debut ofThe Voice Kidsand discovering the next generation of Australian talent,” Delta says. “I have so much respect for my fellow coaches joiningThe VoiceAustralia family. Being a part ofThe Voice Kidsallows me the time to continue working on the show, and to focus on new music.”

The Nine Network’s Director of Development Adrian Swift says the coaches often find it hard to juggle the show and their busy careers.

“Our coaches are artists with busy careers and the time commitment to do back-to-back seasons is extensive, so we are thrilled we are able to work with Delta as a part ofThe Voice Kids, while simultaneously supporting her with her music goals.”

Darren McMullen will return to host bothThe VoiceandThe Voice Kids.
