“The Voice” has just harnessed more star power.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Rob Thomas has just joined the singing competition as a mentor.
The Matchbox Twenty frontman will reportedly assist Cee Lo Green’s team when the show returns this fall for its third season.
"I'm really excited to work with Cee Lo and love the idea that I may be in the room with a future superstar that the world has yet to discover," Thomas told Us Weekly about his new role.
As a mentor, Thomas will meet with contestants and give them tips before their performances - just as Mary J. Blige will do for Adam Levine’s team, and Michael Buble will do for Blake Shelton’s.
That just leaves Christina Aguilera's team, which NBC has not commented on yet, so it’ll be interesting to see which celebrity signs on next.
“The Voice” returns to the air on September 10.
