Ricky Martin will be joining Australia's version of The Voice next year! The singer and broadway star will replace Keith Urban, who confirmed his departure this September, reports Deadline.com. Urban cited "a new album, a tour, and other commitments" as the reasons he would be leaving the program -- opening up a red chair for Ricky! Urban later joined American Idol as a judge.

Ricky Martin will be working alongside fellow judges and coaches Seal, Joel Madden and Delta Goodrem. The show started last April, and since then has become a fan favorite and a ratings powerhouse. 

The debut date for the next season has yet to be set. As much as we're excited for him, we'd love to see Ricky join the U.S. group, wouldn't you? Share in the comments!
