Every season of The Voice has advisors who are primarily used by coaches during Battle Rounds. In the 18th season, there will four coaches but five advisors.

The mentors for 2020 were announced by the show's Twitter page. "Say hello to our ICONIC Battle Advisor," the page said alongside a photo that featured each of the new advisors and their coaches.

But how can there be an extra advisor? Does one team get two advisors? Well, yeah, but they tend to come as a package deal.

Two for the price of one

Nick Jonas's team gets two advisors for the price of one. But, to be fair, they are his brothers, Joe Jonas and Kevin Jonas.

It was fairly recent when the Jonas Brothers got back together, so it makes sense that she show would feature all three together.

Nick announced on Twitter:

"It’s that time to tell you exactly who my advisors are, my mentors are, for my team. These two guys are some of the most trusted people in my life. It’s Hall & Oates. Just kidding it’s Kevin and Joe Jonas! These guys are my brothers, my bandmates, my best friends. And they’re going to help me take Team Nick to the next level."

John Legend's team

John Legend chose British singer-songwriter, Ella Mai, as the mentor for his team, not that he needs the help. The two artists worked together on one of Mai's songs, "Everything."

Legend told Access Hollywood that Mai would be a good advisor on The Voice.

He says:

"She’s such a talented performer and I love the perspective she has to give to these artists because she’s a relatively new artist herself. She knows what it’s like to be a new artist in this era of streaming and a lot of independent artists coming up and I feel like her advice has been really good for them."

Blake Shelton welcomes Bebe Rexha to his team

Bebe Rexha started out in the music biz writing songs for musicians such as Eminem, Selena Gomez, and Nick Jonas. Beyond that, she's a singer herself. She released music of her own, not just for other artists, and has received Grammy nominations for her work. Now, we'll be seeing her as the advisor to Blake Shelton's team.

This isn't the 30-year-old's first time appearing on The Voice though. Rexha was a Comeback Stage mentor during Season 16. So, she probably knows the ropes better than a few of the others.

In 2019, Dua Lipa won a Grammy for Best New Artist. Being newer to the spotlight might make some people think she's one of the lesser qualified advisors, but you have to remember that she won a feakin' Grammy.

Kelly Clarkson snatched Lipa up right off the bat, telling Entertainment Weekly:

"First of all, I literally sing her songs all the time … she’s just really good writer, singer, dancer, all-around entertainer and there are only a few of you that do all of that, the J.Los, the Beyonces. It’s nice to have mentors like Dua who have a hand in all of that."
