Ricky Martin On The Voice Australia: Latino Star Releases First Images As Judge On Singing Competition (VIDEO)

Singer and actor Ricky Martin is officially starting a new life, in a new country, and with a completely new work role as part of the group of stars who will be judging the Australia version of the popular singing competition “The Voice."

Images released by the artist on his Twitter account show the Puerto Rican enjoying himself during a sneak peak of what will be the blind auditions segment of the competition. Accompanied by singers Seal, Joel Madden and Delta Goodremen, the judges will share the task of selecting the best voice from the country in the contest.

This week Martin also shared a tweet expressing how rewarding the experience has been so far.

Last month, the international artist announced he was planning to end his participation on the Broadway musical Evita and was looking forward to new projects this year, among them a new television series with the NBC/Universal network, and the opportunity to write and publish a children’s book.

Ricky is not the only Latino star who joins the production of “The Voice.” Most recently, Colombian singer Shakira also confirmed her participation in the original United States edition that is currently getting ready to launch its fourth season along with celebrity judges Usher, Blake Shelton and Adam Levine.

Take a look at the new Ricky Martin images on "The Voice" above and more about Shakira's new project below.
