Gwen Stefani and Pharrell may be leaving their spinny chairs at The Voice, but it looks like their rotating seats will be filled by two worthy successors: Miley Cyrus and Alicia Keys.

The Voice has featured Keys before as a guest advisor—she joined Pharrell to help prep the singers on his team during the seventh season of the show back in 2014—but this is the first time she'll be mentoring singers on The Voice in an official capacity. Cyrus has yet to appear on The Voice, but that changes on March 28, as she's scheduled to swing through as a guest advisor during the show's knockout round. She took to Twitter to announce the news and appears to be pretty stoked about it:

Keys and Cyrus will join longstanding series regulars Adam Levine and Blake Shelton, who were two of the show's founding judges alongside Christina Aguilera and CeeLo Green back when the talent competition premiered in 2011.

It's a bummer that Gwen and Pharrell will be abdicating their giant vinyl thrones for the time being now that they've got multiple seasons under their belts, but they're keeping busy: Gwen will be performing on Saturday Night Live next month in support of her new album, This Is What the Truth Feels Like, and Pharrell has been spotted in the studio with none other than Justin Timberlake.
