Reba McEntire is set join NBC’s ‘The Voice’ this upcoming season. According to a press release, McEntire will serve as a ‘Mega Mentor’ on Season 23 of the four-time, Emmy-winning music competition show, which premieres Monday, March 6th. ‘Mega Mentors’ help the coaches mentor singers who make it to the later stage of the competition. Previous ‘Mega Mentors’ on “The Voice” have included Ed Sheeran, Snoop Dogg, Mariah Carey, Taylor Swift and Usher.
McEntire joins fellow coaches Chance the Rapper, Kelly Clarkson, Niall Horan and Blake Shelton to mentor the remaining artists. McEntire previously appeared on The Voice as a Battle Advisor to ‘Team Blake.’ Shelton is coaching his final season on The Voice. This season, The Voice is introducing a Playoff Pass for the Battle rounds, which begin March 27. When two singers go head to head, each coach has one Playoff Pass that allows both singers to advance rather than eliminating one. Knockout Rounds will pit artists against each other choosing their own songs without the coaches’ help. Knockouts begin April 17.
