Reba McEntire and Monica
NBC's new singing competition The Voice is adding more star power to its already super-charged panel of judges. Reba McEntire, Monica, Sia and Adam Blackstone have joined the show as "industry insiders" who will help mentor the contestants alongside the coaches, the network announced Friday.
Coaches Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine, Cee Lo Green and Blake Shelton chose their advisers to help them with the next round of the competition, dubbed the "Battles" phase. Contestants on the same team will go head-to-head and their coach chooses the victor.
