NBC’s “The Voice” coaches have chosen multi-platinum singer-songwriters as their respective advisers for the upcoming fifth season.
Cher is set to work alongside coach Blake Shelton, Ed Sheeran will join forces with coach Christina Aguilera, Ryan Tedder will work with coach Adam Levine and Miguel will team with coach CeeLo Green.
Aguilera (@xtina), Levine (@adamlevine), Green (@ceelogreen) and Shelton (@blakeshelton) represent a reunification of the original “Voice” coaches who appeared on the series for its first three seasons. Carson Daly (@carsondaly) once again returns as host.
“The Voice” was last season’s #1 unscripted series in adults 18-49, averaging a 5.2 rating with its Monday edition. That marked the first time in 10 years any series had topped Fox’s “American Idol” for that distinction. The June 18 “Voice” finale attracted the biggest overall audience (15.6 million viewers) to date for a “Voice” season-ender.
The announcement was made by Paul Telegdy, President, Late Night and Alternative Programming, NBC Entertainment.
“This group of wildly successful musicians will add their distinctive talents to their respective teams,” said Telegdy. “I know Christina, Adam, CeeLo and Blake are very much looking forward to having them come aboard.”
Season 5 of “The Voice” is set to premiere on Monday, September 23.
