Kelly Rowland is back to judging, this time for Audible Inc.’s new podcast Breakthrough. The former X Factor judge has been tapped alongside Sara Bareilles to judge what is the first singing competition show launched exclusively in this kind of format.

The pair will mentor and guide five contestants, whose physical appearances will be concealed as they go through the season’s various challenges. Prizes will be awarded over the course of nine episodes to the winners of each challenge.

“I am so happy to be a part of this series that highlights and gives a voice to emerging artists,” says Kelly. “Audible is an ideal space for this and Breakthrough is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to up-and-coming musicians. I’m rooting for them all!”

Breakthrough, hosted by Daveed Diggs, will premiere on June 1.
