Shelton Joins NBC’s “The Voice”

Blake Shelton is joining the coaching panel of NBC’s new musical competition series The Voice. When the show premieres on Tuesday, April 26 (9-11 p.m. ET), Shelton will be sitting alongside fellow musician coaches Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green and Adam Levine.

“We couldn’t have a panel that represented the hottest American music without a strong country presence, and Blake is at the top of his game right now,” said Paul Telegdy, EVP, Alternative Programming, NBC and Universal Media Studios. “Not only is he incredibly charismatic, but his passion for collaborating with and bringing the best out of other talented artists makes him the perfect choice to round out this ‘Dream Team’ of musician coaches.”

The Carson Daly hosted show will follow the four musician coaches as they each select singers to mentor during a blind audition process. Once the coaches have their teams, they will bring in their songwriter and producer friends to help their teams evolve. Ultimately, the viewer at home will vote on the winning singer.
