Taylor Swift to Act as Adviser in ‘The Voice’ Seventh Season
'The Voice' contestants in the upcoming seventh season of the NBC competitive singing show are in for a super treat: Taylor Swift has signed on as an adviser across all four teams!
Last season, Chris Martin of Coldplay served in that role, and Swift will take all she's learned musically in her 24 years of life and help each contestant become better, stronger and more confident. Perhaps she'll even show the hopefuls how to 'shake it off' when negative feedback comes their way?
'The Voice' has its share of celebrities on the show, with veteran coaches Adam Levine and Blake Shelton, as well as new coaches Gwen Stefani and Pharrell Williams, added to this season's judging panel. Previously announced advisers in addition to Swift will personally work with one of the four teams. Levine's advising pro is Stevie Wonder, Stefani nabbed husband Gavin Rossdale, Shelton will work with Little Big Town and Williams has adviser Alicia Keys.
Now, with the addition of Swift, it sounds like the contestants have their work cut out for them, rubbing shoulders with some of music's most talented. "Taylor was an absolute pleasure to work with," a source tells US Weekly. "She had great feedback for all the contestants. She made for an amazing mentor."
The 24-year-old performed on Season 4 of 'The Voice' and also surprised a contestant last year by showing up to a rehearsal and giving a huge thumbs up to her performance.
Fans can get their first look at Swift on 'The Voice' on Sept. 22. Soon after, on Oct. 27, her highly anticipated fifth studio album '1989' will drop. These are exciting times to be Taylor Swift!
