NBC has announced that Alicia Keys will be returning to The Voice for the upcoming 14th season. And yes, that's the very same Alicia Keys who coached Chris Blue to victory in season 12!

This will mark Keys's third time as coach -- for this go-round, she'll be joining old-schoolers Adam Levine and Blake Shelton, as well as newcomer Kelly Clarkson.

Clarkson herself did the honors of announcing Keys as fourth judge in a special video released by the network. After some typical goofing around -- with Shelton and Levine horning in on the grand reveal -- Clarkson showed off Keys, who drawled humorously, "Defending my crown."

"Let's get rid of the toddlers, and it's going to just be me and Alicia this season," Clarkson bubbled. "Is she gonna win? Probably not, because I'm here!"

Season 13 is currently in full swing with coaches Miley Cyrus and Jennifer Hudson, who will not be back for the next go-round.
