NBC says The Voice is teaming a crooner and a country singer for the show’s new season.

The network said on Monday that Michael Bublé would serve as the adviser to coach Blake Shelton’s team of contestants when the singing contest returns in September.

Bublé, who described himself as a “big Blake fan”, said he was having a terrific time working with Shelton and his singers.

The Canadian started taping his appearances on The Voice on Monday in Los Angeles.

NBC has yet to announce the advisers for the show’s three other coaches, Christina Aguilera, CeeLo Green and Adam Levine.

Kelly Clarkson, Jewel and Baby Face were among last season’s advisers, guiding contestants in their choice of songs. – Sapa-AP
