Niall Horan is joining the coaching panel of The Voice US season 23.
Niall Horan is going back to his singing competition roots as he gears up to join The Voice US for season 23 as a coach!
The X Factor alum became a huge success after meeting his former One Direction bandmates Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik in the UK singing competition in 2010, where they came in third place.
1D went on to become arguably the biggest boyband of our generation, with each member going on to thrive in their own solo careers after Zayn’s exit in 2015 and the band’s hiatus a year later.
Now Niall is heading back to his roots to give aspiring talent some of the teachings he has learnt over the years.
The Irish star will be joining US rap star Chance The Rapper as they become the newest coaches on the panel alongside Kelly Clarkson and Blake Shelton for season 23 after Blake announced this upcoming season will be his last.
Blake is currently coaching on the panel alongside superstars John Legend, Gwen Stefani and Camila Cabello.
Speaking about his upcoming coaching duties, the 29-year-old ‘Nice To Meet Ya’ star said: “I’m excited to be joining this season of The Voice as a coach. I’m looking forward to meeting and mentoring the new crop of talent while we battle it out with the other teams!”
This isn’t the first time a 1D member has been added to the panel of a singing competition after Louis returned to the X Factor HQ as a judge in 2018; eight years after making waves in the music world.
