Taylor Swift Joins The Voice as a Season Seven Advisor
The “Shake It Off” singer, 24, will be joining the upcoming seventh season of the NBC competition show as an advisor. A source tells Us that Swift will serve in the same capacity that Coldplay singer Chris Martin aided the show in its sixth season, advising contestants across all four teams.
Swift will be working with veterans Adam Levine and Blake Shelton, as well as new coaches Gwen Stefani and Pharrell Williams, who were added to the lineup for the upcoming season.
"Taylor was an absolute pleasure to work with," a source tells Us of Swift’s contribution to The Voice. “She had great feedback for all the contestants. She made for an amazing mentor.”
Swift, who previously performed on the fourth season of The Voice, joins previously announced advisors Stevie Wonder (who is working with Levine), Gavin Rossdale (working with his wife Stefani), Little Big Town (working with Shelton), and Alicia Keys (working with Williams).
The next season of The Voice kicks off on Sept. 22, one month before the scheduled release of Swift’s upcoming fifth studio album 1989. Led by the hit single “Shake It Off,” 1989 will hit stores on Oct. 27. (x)
“Of all the theories about why the record industry is collapsing – piracy, iTunes, bumbling digital rights management – has anyone considered the real reason is that Taylor Swift took over? Aside from her new single, “Shake It Off,” sales news remains bad: Albums are still down 15 percent, and singles are down 13 percent. It’s a trend that has lasted all year.”—Rolling Stone (x)
