It’s an impressive list of advisers for The Voice’s new season. The coaches have chosen Cher, Ed Sheeran, Ryan Tedder, and Miguel as mentors for their teams.
The group of Grammy winners and multi-platinum-recording artists will be part of the Battle Grounds, which is the part of the competition in which members of each team face off in a boxing like stage.
Before the contestants come on stage, their coach and adviser gives them pointers on how to give their best performance.
As reported by The Inquisitr earlier this year, Ryan Tedder will be Adam Levine’s adviser, Cher is said to work alongside country superstar Blake Shelton, ballad singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran will team up with returning coach Christina Aguilera, and Miguel will advise another returning coach, Cee Lo Green.
Aguilera and Green left the show last year to pursue different opportunities and were replaced by Shakira and Usher.
The announcement of The Voice new advisers came in the form of a press release from NBC Entertainment President of Late Night and Alternative Programming Paul Telegdy.
“This group of wildly successful musicians will add their distinctive talents to their respective teams. I know Christina, Adam, CeeLo and Blake are very much looking forward to having them come aboard.”
Cher is the only artist to have a No. 1 single on the Billboard pop charts on each of the past six decades. She is a Grammy (“Believe”), Oscar (“Moonstruck”), Emmy (“Cher: The Farewell Tour”), and Golden Globe (“The Sonny & Cher Comedy Hour”, “Silkwood”, “Moonstruck”) winner and has become an icon of the music industry.
Ed Sheeran is a British singer-songwriter and a Grammy Award nominee at 22-years-old for his song “The A-List”, which was one of his huge hits from the album +.
Ryan Tedder is the founder and frontman for the band OneRebupblic and has sold over 130 million records worldwide. He is also a producer of artists such as Adele, Beyonce, and Maroon 5.
Finally Miguel hit the airwaves in 2010 with his single “All I Want Is You”, followed by a Grammy Award nomination for “Kaleidoscope Dream.” He has five nominations altogether.
NBC’s The Voice returns on Monday September 23, and it will be hosted, as always, by Carlson Daly.
