Cyrus, 23, confirmed the news with a tweet, writing "It's true!"

"When Miley speaks everyone pays attention. Our artists are very lucky to have the benefit of her instincts and wisdom," NBC entertainment president, alternative and late night programming Paul Telegdy said in a statement. "Our viewers will be treated to an inside look at one of the brightest minds in music and the entertainment industry who is at the forefront of pop culture."

Cyrus is already set to launch a relationship Miley will be a seasoned pro, as the 23-year-old is set to begin appearing as a "key adviser" on the show next week.

While Cyrus often makes headlines for her zany social media/stage presence and animal rights activism, she's amassed an impressive music career by transforming from Disney's "Hannah Montana" to an international chart-topping pop star. And the girl has music in her blood — her dad is country singer Billy Ray Cyrus. At the very least, Cyrus' singular energy will make for some great television.

Keys, 35, has kept mum since the announcement, but the soulful Grammy winner known for her powerful voice and songwriting chops, brings 15 years of music industry experience ("Fallin'" dropped in 2001). She undoubtedly has some wisdom to lavish on the contestants.

We can't wait for next season!
