The singer helped to launch the Mexican version of The Voice in 2011, when he appeared on the judging panel alongside Lucero, Espinoza Paz, and Aleks Syntek, and coached contestant Oscar Cruz to victory.

Each season since has featured a whole new group of mentors, but Alejandro will become the first to take up his spinning chair once more when he steps back up for the forthcoming season five.

He will join pop star Gloria Trevi on the panel, while others rumoured to be in the running to fill the remaining two seats include Juan Gabriel and Shakira, who has served as a coach for the U.S. version of The Voice.

The new season of La Voz Mexico is set to debut in April (16).
