When The Voice returns to NBC, the show won’t only feature judges and coaches Blake Shelton, Cee Lo Green, Christina Aguilera and Adam Levine. The singing competition has also secured a star-studded line up of advisers to contribute their niche expertise to all the undiscovered talent: Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds, Jewel, Lionel Richie, Kelly Clarkson, Miranda Lambert, Alanis Morissette, Ne-Yo and Robin Thicke!
Read on to find out which advisers will be teaming up with which coaches during the pivotal battle rounds!
If you haven’t watched The Voice before, the battle round occurs after the four coaches each select eight contestants from the initial blind auditions. Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Cee Lo Green and Christina Aguilera will each work with their eight artists, and then place them against one another in a duet in order to cut their teams in half.
NBC announced earlier today that during the battle round of season two, the coaching sessions and the decisions will be advised by their superstar friends. The winner of each duet will move on to the live shows, whereas the other will be immediately sent home.
“These renowned musicians will bring their unique and recognizable musical styles to the teams,” said Paul Telegdy, NBC president of late night and alternative programming. “They are well-respected singers whose invaluable experience will be a tremendous asset to Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton’s artists.”
Blake Shelton will be advised by Kelly Clarkson and his wife, Miranda Lambert, and Christina Aguilera will team up with Jewel and Lionel Richie. Cee Lo Green will sit alongside Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds and Ne-Yo and Maroon 5′s Adam Levine will be advised by Alanis Morissette and Robin Thicke.
