"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! Watch this space!”
Kylie also confirmed the news in the following Tweet: "#LOVERS I’m excited to announce that I’ll be coaching on @BBCTheVoiceUK next season!"
She joins coaching panelists Will.i.am and Tom Jones - who are both back for a third year in the show's big red chairs.
Kylie follows in the footsteps of her little sister Dannii, who has been a judge on the X Factor's UK and Australian versions. The brunette singer regularly enlisted the help of her famous sibling in making her final selection of contestants to take forward to the live programmes.
There is still one place up for grabs on the coaching panel after Jessie J and Danny O'Donoghue left at the end of the second series ended.
Will.i.am originally said he would find it hard to return after the departure of his friends. But the Black Eyed Peas singer had a change of heart.
He said: "While I will miss Danny and Jessie, I'm excited to be returning for season three and to work with Kylie and Tom. Together we will mix it up and bring new energy and ideas to the show."
