Taylor Swift is joining The Voice as a “mega mentor” for Season 17.
The “You Need to Calm Down” singer’s role was announced by returning coaches John Legend and Blake Shelton in a funny promotional video uploaded to social media on Monday (September 16). In the short clip, the musicians discuss the mystery mentor’s arrival and act like they have no clue who the person will be.
“I hear we have a Mega Mentor,” the “All of Me” hitmaker says before Shelton replies, “Yeah, but I don’t know who it is. I know it’s supposed to be a big star.”
Swift will join Legend and Shelton, as well as coaches Kelly Clarkson and Gwen Stefani, to offer advice and tips to all the contestants and help each team prepare for the singing competition’s Knockout Rounds, which begins in late October. Normani, Will.i.am, Usher, and Darius Rucker will also appear as mentors this year!
The Voice premieres September 23 on NBC!
