LOS ANGELES (AP) — NBC says “The Voice” is teaming a crooner and a country singer for the show’s new season.
The network said Monday that Michael Buble will serve as adviser to coach Blake Shelton’s team of contestants when the singing contest returns in September.
Buble, who described himself as a “big Blake fan,” said he’s having a terrific time working with Shelton and his singers. Buble started taping his appearances on “The Voice” Monday in Los Angeles.
NBC has yet to announce advisers for the show’s three other coaches, Christina Aguilera, CeeLo Green and Adam Levine.
Kelly Clarkson, Jewel and Baby Face were among last season’s advisers, guiding contestants in their choice of songs. “The Voice” is back for its third season Sept. 10.
