The Voice season 18 Battle Round advisors are revealed! Kevin and Joe Jonas, Dua Lipa, Bebe Rexha and Ella Mai will help the coaches prepare their team members to face off against each other for a spot in the Knockout rounds.
The least shocking choice: Rookie The Voice coach Nick Jonas chose his sibling band mates, Joe Jonas and Kevin Jonas. They were all featured on the summer competition series Songland last year. Nick did most of the talking, so the sessions should be interesting. In any case, it’s not Joe’s first go around. On The Voice season 13 in 2017, he served as advisor for Team Adam Levine. And in 2018, he sat on The Voice Australia’s coaches panel.
American Idol OG winner and talk show host, Kelly Clarkson will join forces with UK singer/songwriter and model Dua Lipa (“One Kiss” ft Calvin Harris, “New Rules”). Dua won the Best New Artist grammy in 2019 and Best Dance Recording for “Electricity” with Silk City.
Country music star Blake Shelton will team up with Bebe Rexha, who was a “Fifth Coach” featured on The Voice season 16 digital “Comeback Stage” series in 2019. Additionally, the singer served as a mentor and celebrity duet singer on American Idol in 2018. Bebe has scored a major hit with “Meant to Be” feat Florida Georgia Line in 2017.
And John Legend will join forces with UK R&B singer Ella Mai, who released the Top 5 Billboard Top 100 hit “Boo’d Up” in 2018. In 2019, the singer won Billboard Music Awards for Top R&B Artist and Top Female R&B Artist.
The Battle Rounds were filmed last week (Jan 17 & 16), with the Knockout round tapings set for Monday Jan 27.

Most of the Tuesday shows have been eliminated to make way for Ellen’s Game of Games. The Tuesday eps return when The Voice goes live for three weeks at the end of the season.
