Miley Cyrus Joins ‘The Voice’
Miley Cyrus will be joining NBC’s reality singing competition series, The Voice, which premieres this month. The singer announced her role as key adviser on Twitter on Wednesday. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Cyrus will serve as a key adviser for all four teams, which are picked by judges Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Pharrell Williams and Christina Aguilera, who returns after Gwen Stefani’s stint on the show. It’s a role Taylor Swift also filled for the show in 2014.
“When Miley speaks everyone pays attention. Our artists are very lucky to have the benefit of her instincts and wisdom,” Paul Telegdy, NBC Entertainment President, Alternative and Late Night Programming, said in a statement. “Our viewers will be treated to an inside look at one of the brightest minds in music and the entertainment industry who is at the forefront of pop culture.”
In addition to Cyrus’ upcoming appearances on The Voice and her recent hosting and musical guest gig on Saturday Night Live, the singer will be getting even more screen time this year via her starring role in an upcoming Woody Allen TV series for Amazon Prime video streaming, which begins filming in March and is expected to air in 2016.
Season 10 of The Voice debuts on February 29th at 8 p.m. ET.
