Cyrus, Keys to join ‘The Voice’ as judges


NEW YORK (AP) — Miley Cyrus and Alicia Keys will get red chairs as new judges on NBC’s “The Voice” next September.

The network said it will be the first time the four-person judging panel will have two women — in previous seasons there were three male judges. Cyrus and Keys will join mainstays Blake Shelton and Adam Levine on one of television’s most popular reality show.

Both women have experience with the show. Cyrus is an adviser this season and Keys was a mentor during a previous season.

NBC says it expects Pharrell to be back in the future as a judge, when his schedule permits.
