Move over Blake Shelton, Reba McEntire is coming to your show. NBC has upped the star power on their new talent discovery show, The Voice. Reba, along with Monica, Sia and music producer Adam Blackstone will join the show as advisors, each teaming up with one of the show’s coaches, Blake, Adam Levine, Cee Lo Green and Christina Aguilera.
The new advisors will assist with the upcoming ‘battles’ competition of the show which will last for four episodes and take place in a boxing ring. Each coach will pit two artists from their eight-act teams against each other in a series of duels to shrink the teams to four. Reba will work with Blake, Cee Lo with Monica, Adam with Maroon 5’s music director Adam Blackstone and Christina with singer/songwriter Sia. It will be the advisor’s job to improve the contestants’ image and performance.
The Voice premiere was last week’s top rated show, attracting over 11.8 million viewers. The show airs on Tuesdays at 9/8 CT on NBC. This week, the coaches will fill the remaining spots on their teams during part two of the blind auditions.
