Channel Nine confirmed she will once again form part of The Voice panel of mentors when the hit show returns later this year.

“I’m thrilled to be starting the year with incredible coaches on a show that I’m very proud of being a part of, and (I’m) looking forward to discovering great Australian talent,” Goodrem said.

The Lost Without You singer left and shifted to the kids version of the reality singing contest last year and was replaced by acclaimed recording artist Kylie Minogue.

As had been earlier confirmed, Minogue isn’t returning this year — and neither is eclectic musician will.i.am, who will be replaced by British songstress Jessie J.

“I love Australia and I can’t wait to see what voices I might discover,” the Price Tag singer said.

Jessie J has been on a coach on the UK version of the show, after rising to fame in 2011 with a multi award-winning debut album.

Her arrival on the Australian version marks the first time anywhere in the world that the franchise has had two female coaches.

Popular coach Joel Madden is back and will be joined this year by twin brother and bandmate Benji. The pair will share a chair and together mentor a team of hopeful pop stars.

Also returning as a coach is Latin star Ricky Martin, who has long been a firm favourite among viewers.

“I can’t wait to hear fresh voices and get up close and personal with amazingly talented artists,” Martin said.

While The Voice has failed to produce a commercially successful winner, it remains a solidly rating show for Channel Nine.
