Let’s hear it for the ladies.
Now women will have an even louder voice on the program, as Miley Cyrus and Alicia Keys take their seats in the massive red swivel chairs. It marks the first time in Voice history that there have been two women on the panel.
“Two women coaches is what The Voice needs,” Keys says in a PEOPLE exclusive first-look trailer of season 11.
“I’m looking forward to rooting people on and being here for the dreamers like me,” she continues. “You’re able to hear someone true for who they are, and that’s what music is.”
Cyrus assures fans that unlike veteran coaches Blake Shelton and Adam Levine, she and Keys will keep the bickering to a minimum.
“As much as the world loves to make this girl cat fight scenario, that’s actually Blake and Adam,” she jokes.
But the two men are united in welcoming the uber-talented women with open arms.
“Miley’s the youthful spirit we’ve been missing,” says Levine.
“She’s a great performer, but she also has this ear for music,” Shelton adds. “Alicia comes from a place more like a writer, a producer.”
Season 11 of The Voice premieres Sept. 19 at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
