Taylor Swift Joins The Voice as a Season Seven Advisor
The "Shake It Off" singer, 24, will be joining the upcoming seventh season of the NBC competition show as an advisor. A source tells Us that Swift will serve in the same capacity that Coldplay singer Chris Martin aided the show in its sixth season, advising contestants across all four teams.
"Taylor was an absolute pleasure to work with," a source tells Us of Swift's contribution to The Voice. "She had great feedback for all the contestants. She made for an amazing mentor."
Swift, who performed on the fourth season of The Voice, joins previously announced advisors 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).
The next season of The Voice kicks off on Sept. 22, one month before the scheduled release of Swift's upcoming fifth studio album 1989. Led by the hit single "Shake It Off," 1989 will hit stores on Oct. 27.
