The Voice is known for bringing in well-known artists to come in and mentor the contestants before they hit the stage to sing for the world on behalf of their mentors.

In the past we have had Green Day frontman, Billie Joe Armstrong, Coldplay frontman, Chris Martin, Jennifer Hudson, and several more.
In the last few months, it was revealed that Ed Sheeran and Cher would be making a guest-appearances on the show as mentors to the contestants this upcoming season.

Today, another iconic singer has been added to the list; Stevie Nicks.

The Fleetwood Mac frontwoman was confirmed for a guest-appearance which coincidentally comes on the heels of Fleetwood Mac announcing that they will be hitting the touring circuit later this year (September 30 in Minneapolis to be exact).

Nicks will be acting as an “adviser” to Team Adam Levine during NBC’s hit show’s seventh season. Nicks has reportedly been working with Levine and his 12 team members as they assign songs and rehearse with the contestants as they prepare for the battle rounds.

This upcoming season also brings in a breath of fresh air as two new judges take their place on the spinning, red chair. Gwen Stefani and Pharrell Williams will be taking the place of Shakira and Usher/ Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green.

The Voice is slated to return to its scheduled time on September 22. the network also revealed that they would be revealing more “advisers” for the upcoming season soon.

Coldplay’s sixth studio album, Ghost Stories will hit store tomorrow with new tracks since 2011’s Mylo Xyloto. Even though the album is new, the band gave fan a one week head start, letting them stream the album on iTunes Radio.

According to frontman Chris Martin, the new album is a lot more personal that their previous ones, but when your life isn’t going to well with a looming divorce, writing your feelings in songs might be the best cure.

In honor of the release, the group were given a primetime special by NBC titled, Coldplay: Ghost Stories where they performed many of their new tracks as well as some of their classics. The hour-long program was pre-recorded back in March in Los Angeles in front of an 800-person audience; intimate setting considering they were playing arenas during their last tour in support of Mylo Xyloto.

While we do not have the full one hour of the show, you can check put some of the highlights of the night below.

Ever since Cee Lo Green announced that he would not be returning to NBC’s hit singing reality show, the question had become who wold fill his big red chair. Today, the answer was given and fans can expect to go from one form of over-the-top costume to another.

Pharrell Williams has been chosen to take over the turning chair alongside Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton for season seven of the television series.

“Okay, we can OFFICIALLY say it! WE ARE SO  to announce PHARRELL WILLIAMS =  for SEASON 7,” The Voice’s official Twitter posted earlier in the day.

After the news had broken, the super-producer took to his Twitter account to confirm that he would be joining with, “This is going to be so fun.”

Fellow judge Adam Levine also tweeted about the new casting with a simple, “Welcome to the circus dude!”

“It’s been a huge year for Pharrell, with recognition for his contribution in the world of music — the Despicable Me franchise soundtracks, his Oscar-nominated song ‘Happy’ and his Grammy-winning collaboration with Daft Punk on the breakout dance hit ‘Get Lucky.’ His dominance in record sales in 2014, coupled with his incomparable accomplishments in the world of fashion and design, make him an irresistible addition to The Voice family,” NBC boss Paul Telegdy said in a statement.

“He has already made a considerable impact as a mentor, drawing on an impressive track record as both a producer and performer. It is a perfect fit for The Voice as we evolve and reach for new heights with this franchise. It feels like we are welcoming an existing family member home.”

The Voice’s executive producer Mark Burnett added, “I am thrilled to have Pharrell come back to The Voice family, and this time…as a coach. Continuing in The Voice tradition of having the biggest and most current music stars as coaches, Pharrell fits perfectly.”

Let all the “Happy” jokes begin. What do you think about the addition of Pharrell (and probably his Smokey the Bear hat) to the show?

Faith Hill revealed this morning on Twitter that she will no longer be the Sunday Night Football theme performer. This comes as a shock to some considering that the country star had been the theme song performer for the past six years.

She writes on Twitter that it had been an honor to be appear on the top broadcast NBC show, but that it’s time to “let someone else rock the open. Difficult decision. Kinda emotional.”

Sunday Night Football executive producer, Fred Gaudelli, tweeted, “great love and appreciation” for Hills work for the show over the last couple of years she was a part of it.

As of right now, the people behind the hit Sunday night tradition have no plans or choices lined up to take over the position Hill now leaves vacant.

Who should take over as the Sunday Night Football theme performer?
