When Kylie Minogue quit the United Kingdom's version of The Voice last spring, there was much speculation about who would be chosen to step into the prized coaching position.

Now we know for certain that Rita Ora has been selected to join Tom Jones, Ricky Wilson and will.i.am on the upcoming fourth season of the hit show.

As for selecting Ora for the show, producers pointed out how much the young star has accomplished in such little time, saying, "In less than two years, Rita Ora has shot to international stardom with four No. 1 singles in the U.K. and a multimillion-selling debut album. Her movie career also kicks off in 2015, with a featured role in the highly anticipated Fifty Shades of Grey."

As for Ora herself, she is wise enough to realize what a great gig this is to have nabbed as she told fans, "So excited to be part of, and for my team to win, The Voice this series! Let's have some fun, will.i.am, Tom and Ricky! I'm really looking forward to the blind auditions — and spinning in my big red chair. EXCITED!!!!"

All four judges are going to Salford in Manchester next month to kick off the blind auditions, with Season 4 of The Voice premiering on BBC One in January.

We already know Ora is a great performer, but how do you guys think she will do as a coach? Will she be able to handle a team of up-and-coming hopefuls, or will the task prove to be a little too much to handle?
