DJ Khaled Completes Line-up For New Season of “The Voice”

Alicia Keys has nabbed DJ Khaled as a mentor for the upcoming 12th season of U.S. TV talent show “The Voice.”

Keys is returning as a judge on the series, which kicks off next month (February 27), and she’ll be up against longtime stars Adam Levine and Blake Shelton and another returning favourite, Gwen Stefani.

Keys tells Extra she can’t wait to work with Khaled, stating, “I feel like it’s so incredible to have the diversity that I’m able to bring to the show, especially through Khaled… I feel like there’s so many ways to look at music, there’s so many ways to create.

“It’s not just about being a great performer, it’s about being a personality, for the energy that you bring to come out. I think that is what Khaled does very naturally.”

The rapper says, “If the room is dark, I’m the lightbulb… I try to bring the best out of the people I work with… We gotta put it out there. We’re gonna do it. We’re gonna work hard. We’re gonna make it happen.”

On Friday morning (January 27), Stefani announced that Celine Dion will be her key adviser on the new series, while Shelton has asked pal Luke Bryan to help him get his wannabes ready for the big time.
