Meghan Trainor and Diana Ross have Got the Voice!
One is a rising star whose summer debut skyrocketed to number one on the Billboard Hot 100. The other is a world-class diva known for high glamour, high style, and an unmistakable mane. This fall, they’ll unite on reality television as mentors on NBC’s The Voice.
On Tuesday’s episode of the Emmy award-winning show, host Carson Daly revealed that Meghan Trainor and Diana Ross will be appearing next week, along with Colbie Caillat and Fall Out Bot frontman Patrick Stump. Their appearance on the show marks a series of firsts for the competition: according to Billboard, it’s the first time in show history that advisers have appeared so late in the series. Additionally, when it’s time to crown the season’s top three, all eliminated contestants will have the chance to come back and compete for a wildcard slot.
Season seven of The Voice has called on acts like Taylor Swift, Stevie Nicks, Alicia Keys, Gavin Rossdale and Little Big Town to counsel teams led by Pharrell, Gwen Stefani, Adam Levine, and Blake Shelton. Its ratings have stayed pretty strong, starting out with nearly 13 million viewers when it debuted in September, and remaining one of NBC’s top shows well into fall. Perhaps a little bass will boost its primetime appeal.
