Us Weekly reports that Selena Gomez will be joining season 9 of NBC’s successful music franchise,“The Voice,” as Gwen Stefani’s mentor along with a few other musicians. Brad Paisley was chosen for Blake Shelton’s team, Missy Elliot will join Pharrell, and John Fogerty will be a mentor for Adam Levine.
Earlier this year, Selena appeared on Z100’s The Elvis Duran Show promoting her most recent single “Good For You.” When discussing her music, the 23-year-old singer famously admitted “I know that maybe vocally I wouldn’t be the greatest singer in the world.”
With that admission from the pop princess herself, this will make watching her mentoring all the more interesting. Will she really be the right mentor for contestants who have stronger voices? Or will her honesty – and the hard work that she’s had to put into other areas of her performance – actually turn out to be an even more valuable set of assets for young performers trying to get the most out of their talent?
“The Voice” returns Monday, September 21 8/7c on NBC.
