Ricky Martin, who will conclude his run in the Broadway revival of Evita Jan. 26, 2013, has found his next gig.



The celebrated singer, according to Deadline.com, will become a judge on the Australian version of the singing competition "The Voice."

Martin replaces coach Keith Urban, who departed the program to become a judge on Fox-TV's "American Idol."

Martin, who was also seen on Broadway during the original run of Les Miserables, will join returning "Voice" judges Seal, Joel Madden and Delta Goodrem. A launch date for the new season of the Australian "The Voice" has yet to be announced.

The Tony-nominated revival of Evita continues at the Marquis Theatre.
