Ever since Miley Cyrus was announced a few weeks ago as one of the coaches who will be joining the next season of "The Voice," a few fans have been wondering how good the former Disney star will be as a coach on the popular singing competition show. Well, there are several reasons that convince us that Cyrus — who has several accolades and achievements to her credit — will be one of the best coaches in Season 11 of "The Voice."
Right on top of the list of these reasons comes her popularity as a professional singer. Cyrus has 17 singles charts on the Billboard 100 and has recorded seven studio albums.
Also, Cyrus has been in the industry for quite a long time. She first came in the spotlight when she made her debut in Disney's "Hannah Montana" at the age of 13. Her father, Billy Ray Cyrus, is a Platinum-selling country artiste. Hence, she is familiar with the razzmatazz of music and showbiz.
Renowned country singer-songwriter Dolly Parton is Cyrus' godmother. Like Shelton, Cyrus is also a country girl, hailing from Nashville.
Cyrus gets well with the contestants as most of them are her age. Therefore, they can relate to her better than the rest of the coaches, who are veterans of the industry.
Cyrus also has already built a rapport and friendly reputation on the show. According to E! Online, in the Knockout Round episodes of the current ongoing Season 10 of "The Voice", in which she appeared as a star guest, she gave invaluable inputs to coaches, Blake Shelton, Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine, and Pharrell Williams. She also gave some very specific and insightful suggestions to the contestants that helped them perform better.
The team of coaches in the next season of "The Voice" includes artistes from various music backgrounds, including R&B superstar Alicia Keys, country singer Shelton and rock/pop singer Levine. Hence Cyrus will be a good addition as a female pop artiste to a panel that consists of coaches belonging to diverse genres.
"The Voice US" Season 11 is scheduled to premiere Sept. 12, 2016 on NBC.
