John Legend becoming coach on 'The Voice'

That's right, John Legend is joining the upcoming 16th season of the reality TV competition series.

Legend will take over the spot now held by Jennifer Hudson, who will serve as a coach on Season 15, which debuts on September 24.

He's nominated for best actor in a limited series or movie for "Jesus Christ Superstar", is set to join NBC's "The Voice". Legend will join Blake Shelton, Adam Levine and Kelly Clarkson as the fourth coach for season 16 this spring. "I hope the world is ready for Team JL", he said. Levine and Shelton have been longtime coaches (and good-natured rivals) ever since the show premiered in 2011. "His multi-dimensional career and incredible talents provide a repertoire that will excite and inspire our artists".

"I'm thrilled to join the coaches of 'The Voice,'" Legend said.

After scoring a Creative Arts Emmy on Sunday for his role as an executive producer on Jesus Christ Superstar, Legend has officially scored an EGOT (winning an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar, and a Tony). Legend has released five studio albums and began his impressive Grammy run in 2006 when he won Best New Artist for his debut release "Get Lifted", which captured Best R&B Album.

He previously won an Oscar for his original song 'Glory' (co-written by Common) from the movie Selma.

The Voice returns for its 15th season September 24. Two artists will earn the chance to compete for America's vote, and the victor will earn a spot on the competition's live shows that kick off in November.
