Kylie Minogue is "really excited" that Rita Ora is taking her spot on the judging panel for the next series of 'The Voice'

Kylie Minogue thinks Rita Ora will be "great" as her replacement on 'The Voice'.

The pop superstar has given the 'Black Widow' singer her blessing to take her chair on the judging panel and thinks she will bring a great energy to the BBC One talent show.

In an interview on TV show 'Lorraine', Kylie said: "I'm really excited that Rita is doing it, I think she'll be great!"

Kylie announced she was leaving 'The Voice' after earlier this year after just one series, and Rita was announced as her replacement and will join returning judges Sir Tom Jones, will.i.am and Ricky Wilson for the next season.

Emma Willis and Marvin Humes are to return as hosts when 'The Voice' kicks off in January 2015.

It seems the 'Into The Blue' hitmaker is feeling generous towards her pop peers.

Kylie, 46, revealed she's a big fan of Miley Cyrus but she's not prepared to try some of Miley's trademark twerking during her 'Kiss Me Once' European tour, which kicked off at the Echo Arena in Liverpool on Wednesday night (24.09.14).

She said: "Miley's a little dynamite, I love her. She showed us the first famous footage of her twerking and said, 'You should do it!' I said, 'You do it great but me? I don't know.' "
