Mary will be joining Adam Levine’s team as an advisor, a job the singer says she has been vying for the last two seasons.
“I love Adam, he’s amazing. I’m so happy to finally be working with him and his team,” Mary said. “I’ve been a fan of the show since it aired and Adam brings an authenticity to what he does, which made me anxious to work with him.”
Adam returned the love, saying “I’ve always been a huge fan of Mary J. Blige, so it’s been great having her on The Voice as an adviser to my team.”
Since its premiere in 2010, The Voice has been a hit, rising in the ratings while ‘Idol,” even with the addition of such big names as Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez, has continued to languish, eventually losing it’s #1 position to Monday Night Football.
As for who will eventually replace Jennifer, Mariah Carey and Aretha Franklin have been thrown in the mix, with Franklin reportedly lobbying hard for the position.
