Miley Cyrus just starred in her very first season as one of four coaches of The Voice, but unfortunately, she doesn’t have a shot at winning Season 11.
While Miley Cyrus had a good run on the series, all of her remaining contestants were eliminated during last week’s show, which has left her co-stars, including Adam Levine, Blake Shelton and Alicia Keys, to battle it out in hopes of becoming the Season 11 victor.
Although Miley Cyrus didn’t make it to the end of Season 11, she will soon be returning to the show for another round of the competition — but not for Season 12. Instead, she will be replaced for Season 12 by Gwen Stefani and return to the show next fall for Season 13.
Following the announcement of Gwen Stefani’s return to the show, Miley Cyrus took to Twitter where she revealed to fans that she would be back for more next year.
In her message to fans in October, Miley Cyrus confirmed her NBC return, telling her followers, “Yessss!!! Im returning to @NBCTheVoice next Fall as a coach for season 13.”
On October 18, Variety confirmed the Season 12 and Season 13 renewal of the singing competition series and revealed Miley Cyrus would part ways with the show briefly to make room for Gwen Stefani’s return.
“We can’t wait to experience the unique chemistry and energy Gwen, Alicia, Blake and Adam will bring to Season 12,” said Paul Telegdy, president of alternative and reality group, NBC Entertainment. “With Miley returning for Season 13, we’re truly ecstatic about the unmatched musical know-how and talent coming together in our coming seasons.”
Prior to Miley Cyrus’ addition to The Voice Season 11, Gwen Stefani and Christina Aguilera alternated seasons as coach. However, because of Stefani’s This is What the Truth Feels Like Tour, she was unable to appear on the show’s 11th season.
Before Miley Cyrus was confirmed for a return, she hinted that she may not be on board with coming back during an interview with Variety.
“I don’t know. I definitely would like to if it made sense. I haven’t done the live shows yet. I want to see how that feels. They might be a lot more pressure,” Miley Cyrus explained. However, she must have had a change of heart because she ultimately agreed to return before the live episodes began.
At the time Miley Cyrus was added to The Voice for Season 11, Alicia Keys joined the series in her debut season, as well, which made for the first two female, two male coaching panel. Before the two women were added, there was always three men and one woman on the show.
In other Miley Cyrus news, the singer and actress recently celebrated her 24th birthday with her fiance, Liam Hemsworth, at her side.
As Miley Cyrus revealed on Instagram on her big day, Hemsworth presented her with a colorful ring which came in a colorfully decorated box. As fans will recall, Cyrus recently told Ellen Degeneres that the Neil Lane engagement ring Hemsworth had previously given her wasn’t really her style.
“This is really weird because this is like real jewelry and most of my jewelry is made out of gummy bears and cotton candy and they don’t look that good together because they kind of mix up,” Cyrus explained to host DeGeneres, via Us Weekly. “So sometimes I replace it with an actual unicorn or a Looney Tune [character].”
“He’s kind of like, ‘What’s going on?’ [And] I am like, ‘This isn’t really my aesthetic, but I’ll wear it because you love me.”
To see more of Miley Cyrus and her co-stars, tune into the live finale episodes of The Voice Season 11 starting tonight, December 12, at 8 p.m. on NBC and continuing tomorrow night at the same time.
