NBC has released the names of the four artists that will join The Voice Season 14 family as Battle Round advisors.
Julia Joins Team Adam
Singer-songwriter Julia Michaels is scheduled to join the show's stalwart coach, Adam Levine, during the Season 14 Battle Round rehearsals. Over the past few years, Michaels has been one of the premiere Top 40 songwriters as she penned tunes for Justin Bieber, Britney Spears, former coach Gwen Stefani, and P!nk. Last year, Michaels released her latest EP, Nervous System, which was well received by the music industry.
She is currently nominated for two Grammy Awards including Song of the Year and Best New Artist. Michaels is also expected to join Levine and Maroon 5 on their "Red Pill Blues" World Tour, which is scheduled to start on May 30.
Hailee And Kelly
Oscar-nominated actress-singer Hailee Steinfeld will be working with the show's new coach and original American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson. Steinfeld has been growing a steady fanbase thanks to appearances in the Pitch Perfect franchise and hits such as "Most Girls," "Love Myself," and "Let Me Go."
Shawn Mendes Makes History
Team Alicia's latest adviser, 19-year-old Shawn Mendes, is about to make show history. The "Stitches" and "I Know What You Did Last Summer" singer-songwriter will become The Voice's youngest Battle Round adviser.
"I was like, I feel like I should be getting in front of the microphone and singing, and asking for her advice. I think there was one moment that I was sitting there halfway through a song and I'm like, 'Am I really sitting here right now with her being an adviser? I'm 19 years old!' So this is really crazy," Mendes told Entertainment Tonight.
Adkins And Shelton
Blake Shelton's longtime friend, Trace Adkins, will join the "God Gave Me You" singer for the Season 14 Battle Rounds. While the friends collaborated on numerous songs such as "Hillbilly Bone," this will mark Adkins' first time advising Shelton on the show.
Countless A-list recording artists and music legends have participated advising The Voice coaches in the Battle Rounds. Former advisers such as Clarkson, Keys, and former coach Pharrell Williams have become coaches in future seasons.
The Voice is expected to start airing its Season 14 Blind Auditions on Monday, Feb. 26.
