‘The Voice’ Announces Battle Advisors for Season 21, Two Country Stars to Appear
The Voice coaches have announced their celebrity advisors for the Season 21 Battles, and there are some pretty big names in the mix. The Battles come after the Blind Auditions when the coaches pair up their team members for duets that will decide who moves on. Each coach has an advisor who offers feedback and advice to the artists during rehearsals.
Who Are ‘The Voice’ Season 21 Battle Advisors?
The show’s coaches appeared in a new video announcing their advisors for the upcoming season. That includes new coach Ariana Grande, who was particularly excited about the talented star who will be working with her.
First, John Legend announced that former Fifth Harmony star Camila Cabello would be his advisor this season. Cabello said she was “so excited to be here.” To make the announcement a little goofy, she and the other advisors spoke into microphones that altered their voices.
Kelly Clarkson was next up, announcing that country star Jason Aldean will be joining her during the Battles. Fellow coach Blake Shelton also (unsurprisingly) chose a country star — Dierks Bentley.
Last but not least, Grande revealed that her Battle advisor is none other than Kristin Chenoweth, whom she called a “dear friend.” Grande shared of Chenoweth:, “She’s so incredible, and I am so grateful.” Chenoweth told her she’s “proud to see you teach,” calling her team “kick-butt.”
Grande Gushes About Her Advisor Selection
Grande couldn’t contain her excitement about Chenoweth to just the announcement video. She took to Twitter after the news went public, writing that she was “screaming” and calling Chenoweth “the absolute queen of vocals, of funny, of technique, of kindness, of brilliance and of my heart.”
“i cannot tell you how thankful i am to have shared this with her and to have been able to ‘teach’ with someone i have learned the absolute most from,” Grande added in a follow-up tweet.
The feeling is mutual, as Chenoweth posted her own excitement about the gig, calling Grande her “baby girl” and adding that “her team is BEYOND talented. I can’t wait for the world to meet them.” She said it was “an honor” to be asked to join Grande on the show.
Season 21 of The Voice premieres on NBC September 20.
