Kaiser Chiefs frontman Ricky Wilson will be replacing Danny O'Donoghue and join new judge Kylie Minogue on his very own swivelly chair.
A strange choice we think. Very random and a bit five years ago maybe?
The Controller of Entertainment Commissioning for the BBC
"Ricky is one of the UK music scene's great frontmen. He knows all about performance and will complement the rest of the coaching line-up perfectly."
Ricky also seems rather pleased with his new role, "Who doesn't want to spend their Saturday night with Kylie Minogue?"
And you're really excited to see some new talent, right Ricky?
Is Ricky a welcome addition to the The Voice UK panel? Still wonder who the bloody hell is Ricky Wilson? Here's a reminder:
