Luis Fonsi is set to join Kelly Clarkson as her team advisor on season 20 of The Voice.

Fonsi, who has been a coach on Telemundo's La Voz since 2018 -- the network's Spanish-language version of the singing competition series -- is a "natural at giving constructive criticism."

"It means a lot to them," Clarkson told Extra. "I’ve been them, and it means a lot when people actually take the time to invest in your performance."

Fonsi said of Clarkson, "Getting to work with Kelly truly is an honor. I’m a fan … I’ve been doing this for 22 years and you meet talented people every day, but to meet a normal talented person? Somebody who is kind-hearted -- it is so refreshing. ‘Oh, wait, you are famous, talented and nice … What?’"

In 2019, Fonsi made a surprise appearance on The Voice to promote the second season of Telemundo’s La Voz. There he found a new fan, Kelly Clarkson, who asked for a Spanish lesson. The “Despacito” singer told her to repeat: Mi nombre es Kelly Clarkson y soy una mujer hermosa (My name is Kelly Clarkson and I’m a pretty woman).

Season 20 of The Voice kicks off March 1 with returning judges Clarkson, Nick Jonas, John Legend and Blake Shelton,
