The network announced the news via a series of goofy hints on the show’s official Twitter account.

The Voice had previously been on a rotating schedule of coaches, with Shakira and Usher subbing in for Christina Aguilera and Green during Seasons 4 and 6. Following Green’s decision not to rejoin the series, NBC was forced to find a new replacement for Season 7.
