Taylor Swift is joining NBC’s “The Voice.”
The “Shake It Off” singer will be the universal adviser for the current season of the show, with the news confirmed by NBC today.
The 24-year-old pop star will appear as the “key adviser” during the Knockout Round which features singers from the same team competing against each other.
She will mentor competitors on vocal technique, stage presence, and the importance of choosing songs to fit their personalities and strengths.
Swift will make her first appearance on the show on Oct. 27, the same day her new album “1989” is released. She will appear again on Oct. 28 and Nov. 3 to close out the Knockout Rounds.
The blond bombshell will replace Coldplay front-man Chris Martin who advised the artists last season and join a star-studded cast with new coaches Gwen Stefani and Pharrell Williams.
“Seven-time Grammy winner Taylor Swift is going to act as the sole mentor for all of our teams during the knock-out round,” TODAY’s Carson Daly (who also emcees the hit NBC reality competition series) announced Friday.
“We’re happy to have her,” he added.
“The Voice” airs Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 p.m.
