Ricky Martin has suggested he won't be a tough judge/coach on Australia's reality singing contest The Voice.

The 40-year-old Martin is headed down under to replace departing judge Keith Urban. He'll join returning judges Joel Madden, Seal and Delta Goodrem.

“Yes, I'm going to be part of The Voice family in Australia,” Martin confirmed to the AP. “And it is a very big opportunity for me to see and experience and be part of the beginning of the musical career of new talented people. It would be such an honor.”

“People ask, 'Are you going to be tough on them?' And I don't know yet. I don't believe in tough love. I believe in love. And I believe in being nurturing to new talented men and women out there.”

Martin will give his farewell performance as Che in the Broadway revival of the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical Evita on Saturday, January 26. He is expected to arrive in Australia in February.
