NBC officially announced The Voice season 21 Battle Round advisors earlier this week. But now, here’s a tiny spoiler that’s not OFFICIAL yet. The Knockouts were taped last week, and according to fans who attended the taping,s British pop star Ed Sheeran served as Mega Mentor for the contestants.
The info comes from Idol Forums, a site that has an excellent track record for spoilers. Spoiler: Most likely true.
Currently, Ed is riding high on the charts with his last single “Bad Habits.” As of this week, “Bad Habits” sits at No. 3 and climbing on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
It seems, with The Voice only airing once a season, NBC is filling the show with superstar artists. For instance, the Battle Advisors are mostly all chart topping singers. Blake Shelton has teamed with country superstar Dierks Bentley. Kelly Clarkson teamed with another country music favorite, Jason Aldean. John Legend chose pop songstress Camila Cabello. And newest The Voice coach, and a major chart topper in her own right, Ariana Grande has joined forces with Broadway favorite, Kristin Chenoweth.
The Voice will return to 12 member teams this season and air on Mondays and Tuesdays.
Ed Sheeran’s Bad Habits is his first single since 2019
Ed Sheeran has spent the last few years out of the spotlight following his two-year Divide tour and the arrival of his first daughter. The singer-songwriter marks his official return with the euphoric, song-of-summer contender, “Bad Habits.”
“Bad Habits” marks the singer’s first official release since 2019’s No.6 Collaborations Project, which includes the multi-platinum, chart-topping hits “I Don’t Care (with Justin Bieber)” and “Beautiful People (feat. Khalid),” and features guest appearances from 22 of his favorite artists including Travis Scott, Eminem, Bruno Mars, Cardi B and Camila Cabello, just to name a few.
Ed Sheeran is currently recording his new album.
The Voice Season 21 premieres on NBC Monday September 20 and Tuesday September 21.
