Rob Thomas Joins 'The Voice' to Mentor Team Cee Lo
Rob Thomas is the latest singer to join "The Voice" as a mentor. The crooner will assist Cee Lo Green's team when the show returns for its third season this fall, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
"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.
Singer/songwriter Thomas, who is the frontman of rock group Matchbox Twenty, has also released two solo albums, Something to Be (2005) and Cradlesong (2009). Matchbox Twenty has released three studio albums, one compilation album, three video albums and 20 singles.
As a mentor, Thomas will meet with contestants and give them tips before their performances. NBC has yet to announce the mentors for Christina Aguilera's teams, so several other big names in music could possibly drop by the show in the upcoming season.
Previous mentors on The Voice have included Kelly Clarkson, Miranda Lambert, Alanis Morissette and Robin Thicke.
The third season of The Voice premieres Sept. 10 on NBC.
