NBC announced yesterday that singer/songwriter, and Taylor Swift bestie, Ed Sheeran would serve as Christina Aguilera’s mentor on the upcoming fall cycle of The Voice.
According to rumors, Ryan Tedder will assist, Adam Levine, the fierce Cher will be helping Blake Shelton (which ought to be a hoot) and Cee Lo Green is set to work with R&B singer, Miguel.
Mentors join the coaches during the battle round phase of the competition–that’s when team members are pitted against each other in a duet style sing off.
Battle Rounds were shot last week, and the production is currently gearing up to film the remaining contestants battling in the knock out rounds.
The Voice season 5 premieres on NBC Monday September 23.
