Taylor Swift just announced that she is a proud new member of season seven’s The Voice, and will join the show in the capacity of an “advisor” when it hits TV screens on September 22.
Us Weekly reported today that Swift, 24, will serve in a similar capacity to that of Coldplay singer Chris Martin, who assisted contestants across all four teams in the show’s sixth season.
Alongside Taylor Swift will be the familiar veteran faces of Adam Levine and Blake Shelton, as well as new coaches Gwen Stefani and Pharrell Williams, who were added to the lineup for season seven.
A source told Us: “Taylor was an absolute pleasure to work with. She had great feedback for all the contestants. She made for an amazing mentor.”
Being that Swift appeared on the fourth season of The Voice, she knows the ropes already and will no doubt be a great asset to the show.
Other advisors, who have already been announced, are Stevie Wonder, who is working with Levine, Gavin Rossdale, working with his wife Stefani, Little big Town, working with Shelton, and Alicia Keys, working with Williams.
Taylor Swift’s main responsibilities as an advisor will include offering support and advice to all the contestants on the show and being there to guide them as and when they need a little push in the right direction.
A couple of months back Gwen Stefani, 44, said her spouse had settled nicely into his new job on The Voice. She told Us back in June: ”He is super articulate and he has a really good opinion and he is smart and he’s been doing a really good job.”
Make a note in your calendar to catch the first episode of season Seven’s The Voice, which hits screens on September 22 as mentioned above.
The timing works well for Taylor Swift, who is just about to release her fifth studio album entitled 1989.
