Kylie Minogue will join will.i.am and Sir Tom Jones for season 3 of "The Voice" in the U.K, replacing departing coaches Jessie J and The Script singer Danny O'Donoghue.

Producers have yet to select a fourth member of the judge's panel, but the BBC said Wednesday that one would be chosen “in due course."

“I’m very excited to become a Coach on 'The Voice,'" Minogue said in an announcement on her website.

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!

"#LOVERS I'm excited to announce that I'll be coaching on @BBCTheVoiceUK next season!," the 45-year-old Australian pop star added on Twitter.

Kylie's sister, Dannii, who previously judged the U.K.'s version of "The X Factor," now coaches "The X Factor" in Australia.

"While I will miss Danny and Jessie, I'm excited to be returning for season three and to work with Kylie and Tom," will.i.am said of the change up.

"Together we will mix it up and bring new energy and ideas to the show."
