Adele is being lined up for a judging role on new BBC singing competition 'The Voice'

Adele is set to land a judging role on 'The Voice'.

The 'Set Fire to the Rain' singer is being targeted by BBC1 bosses who think she would make the perfect addition to the panel on the programme - which sees singers' performances assessed without the panellists seeing what they look like - alongside ousted 'X Factor' judge Cheryl Cole and US 'Voice' star Cee Lo Green.

A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Adele's success is all down to her incredible voice and, in this way, embodies all that 'The Voice' represents.

"She's honest, funny and loved by millions of people of all ages.

"She really has 'The Voice' that can sell albums around the world so she knows what to look for.

"Her style and look is also very different to that of Cheryl Cole, so if we could get them both on board it would be fantastic."

While Adele has not confirmed she has been approached for the show, she has admitted she has "something quite big" in the pipeline.

She told BBC Radio 1 DJ Chris Moyles yesterday (05.07.11): "There's a possibility I'm doing something quite big next year - I've got a meeting about it on Friday (08.07.11)."
