NBC’s The Voice has assembled an all-star cast of mentors for Season 2 that includes: Lionel Richie, Kelly Clarkson, Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds, Jewel, Miranda Lambert, Alanis Morissette, Ne-Yo and Robin Thicke. The group will work as advisers to the coaches during the battle rounds.
Each of the four coaches will work with a pair of advisers:
- Blake Shelton: Kelly Clarkson and wife Miranda Lambert
- Adam Levine: Alanis Morissette and Robin Thicke
- Christina Aguilera: Jewel and Lionel Richie
- Cee Lo Green: Babyface and Ne -Yo
“These renowned musicians will bring their unique and recognizable musical styles to the teams,” said Paul Telegdy, NBC president of late night and alternative programming. “They are well-respected singers whose invaluable experience will be a tremendous asset to Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton’s artists.”
The Voice premiers Sunday, Feb. 5 at 10 p.m, after the Superbowl and returns to its regular timeslot on Monday February 6 at 8 pm.
So, what do you think of the picks? Besides Kelly Clarkson, there are really no surprises in this bunch. Jewel is a reality show veteran at this point, appearing on Idol, Nashville Star and more. Ne-Yo could be an interesting addition. Ditto Robin Thicke–I have no sense of what his personality is like. Miranda Lambert was a no-brainer, and was going to happen sooner or later.
