NBC's 'The Voice' coaches to be assisted by additional musical stars

By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 05/03/2011 

NBC has announced The Voice will be utilizing the talents of four stars in the music industry to assist the show's musician coaches during its "battle" rounds, which will begin next week. 

Singers Reba McEntire, Monica, Sia Furler and music producer Adam Blackstone will be joining the series as new advisers to lend their expertise to musician coaches Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine, and Blake Shelton -- who will train and mentor the singers they selected from the "blind auditions phase" in preparation for the "battle" stage of the competition.   

Aguilera will partner up with Sia, Levine will team up with Blackstone, Shelton will work with Reba, and Cee Lo Green will be assisted by Monica.

Reba, Monica, Sia and Blackstone were picked because "they are in the trusted inner circle of the respective musician coach that they are helping," according to NBC. The assistants will be expected to "bring out the best" in their group of artists and assist in choosing songs appropriate for each performer's vocal style and ability.

The Voice will feature four weeks of the "battle" rounds, in which the coaches will have two of their own team members face off vocally and then decide which singer will advance and which one will be eliminated from the competition. 

Once the "battle" rounds have concluded, The Voice will switch to live performance shows featuring the remaining 16 contestants. Additional advisors will also be added to The Voice's roster of celebrities once the live performance shows begin, according to the network.
