Australia’s Channel 9 has announced that Ricky Martin will join the coaching line-up on The Voice Australia.

The Latin singer will join existing coaches Seal, Joel Madden and Delta Goodrem on the 2013 season of the popular show.

He replaces the now departed Keith Urban, who left to take up a judging gig on American Idol.

Nine’s Director of Television, Michael Healy said: “Ricky Martin is one of the world’s biggest stars. He brings huge experience to our panel of coaches which he’ll pass on to our Australian Voice artists in 2013. Most of all, we think he’s the perfect addition to Delta, Joel and Seal and all three of them are thrilled he’s joining them in the Big Red Chairs next year.”
