Ricky Martin hears 'The Voice' in Australia


Ricky Martin is heading down under. The musician has signed with the Australian version of 'The Voice' to be a coach on the series second season. 

Martin will be replacing Keith Urban, who left the series to join American Idol. 'The Voice,' whcih airs on the Nine network, is the country's top-rated series. Other coaches during the 2013 season include Seal, Joel Madden and Delta Goodrem. By comparison, the American version Adam Levine, Cee Lo Green, Christina Aguilera and Blake Shelton.

The singer/dancer certainly has the credentials to judge. He has sold more than 60 million albums, helped in large part to hits "Livin' la Vida Loca," "The Cup of Life," "She's All I Ever Had," "Shake Your Bon-Bon" and "She Bangs."

Fans praised the move on Twitter, drawing a response from Martin. "Cant wait to go back! Peace!"

“Ricky Martin is one of the world’s biggest stars," said Nine’s director of television, Michael Healy. "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."
