Jennifer Hudson Opens Up About New 'The Voice UK' Rule Change!

Jennifer Hudson and fellow coaches Tom Jones, Olly Murs and Will.i.am flash a smile together while visiting the KISS Breakfast studio to promote The Voice UK on Friday (January 4) in London, England.

The 37-year-old entertainer has opened up about this season including a new rule change, as trios will now be part of the show.

“It’s kind of cool for us. You don’t know if you’re hearing one, two or three voices. It keeps it suspenseful for us. What are we listening to?,” Jennifer expressed during an interview with ITV’s Lorraine. “It’s very competitive of course. As coaches we’re there to win. Yes, we’re a family but at the same time we can’t forget it’s a competition and we want the winner in the end.”

Jennifer also opened up about throwing her shoes at contestants: “Music moves me in a special way and it’s a compliment if I take my shoe off and throw it at you if you’re performing,” she said. “It’s like a standing ovation. I’m not throwing it at them, I’m throwing it for them.”

Jennifer Hudson Returns As Coach for 'The Voice UK'!

Jennifer Hudson is back on The Voice UK for 2019!

The 37-year-old entertainer joined her fellow coaches Tom Jones, Olly Murs and Will.i.am, as well as host Emma Willis at their official photo call for The Voice UK at the W Hotel on Thursday (January 3) in London, England.

While in previous years the competition has accepted soloists and duos, this season will be different, as trios will now be part of the show as the rules have changed for hopefuls.

“Trios have been good. I think all four of us have got a trio each which was great in the end,” Olly said in a statement. “I don’t think that was intentional, it just happened. I think actually we’ve all picked a trio that the public would have put us with.”
