Taylor Swift returns to "The Voice," this time as the Mega Mentor on Season 17. Coaches John Legend and Blake Shelton made the announcement on Instagram and Twitter today: John Legend's Instagram post and Blake Shelton's Instagram post.

As “The Voice” Mega Mentor, Taylor will join coaches Kelly Clarkson, John Legend, Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani to mentor the artists and prepare each team for the Knockout Rounds, which will begin airing in late October.

During the Knockout Rounds, the artists will be paired with a teammate and select their own songs to perform individually. Taylor will be on hand to work with all four coaches and their teams to provide feedback, suggestions and praise as the artists prepare for their performance. The coaches alone will choose the winner, and the artist not selected will be available to be stolen by another coach. They are vying for their coach's confidence and decision to take them to the final and crucial round before the Live Performance Shows, the Live Playoffs. This season each coach will only have one steal in the Knockout Rounds, making the stakes higher than ever for the artists.

Taylor previously served as the Mega Mentor on Season 7 of “The Voice.” She also performed her chart-topping single “ME!” ft. Brendon Urie of Panic! At the Disco on the Season 16 finale of “The Voice” earlier this year.

“The Voice” premieres Monday, Sept. 23 (8-10 p.m. ET/PT) on NBC.
Taylor’s seventh studio album, “Lover,” is not only the top-selling album of 2019, it is the highest-selling album since “reputation” was released back in 2017 and broke the record for simultaneous entries by a female artist in Billboard’s Hot 100 history with all 18 tracks from “Lover” charting! She has sold over 50 million albums and 150 million singles to date and holds YouTube’s most-viewed video by any female solo artist.
