Who Are the Battle Advisors for Season 20?

Each coach has called on a talented artist to be their Battle Rounds advisor for season 20.

For Team Nick, the Battle Advisor is award-winning actor and singer Darren Criss, best known for his roles in Glee and The Assassination of Gianni Versace. 

Team Kelly will be advised by Puerto Rican singer, musician and songwriter Luis Fonsi, possibly best known for his song “Despacito” featuring Puerto Rican rapper Daddy Yankee and the remix featuring Justin Bieber.

Team Blake’s Battle Advisors this season are country and pop music duo Dan + Shay. The duo has released three albums including Where it All Began, Obsessed and Dan + Shay. 

For Team Legend, Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Brandy will be acting as the Battle Advisor.

Legend sat down with Entertainment Tonight to talk about why he chose Brandy as his celebrity advisor for this season of The Voice. 

“Her track record as a successful artist speaks for itself and we’ve been loving her and cherishing her as an artist of our culture for such a long time,” Legend told the outlet. “What I tell her and what is so resonant to me about her is not only has she had a great career and had lots of hits, but singers love Brandy.”

He added, “They all look up to her and she’s so influential to other singers. For a show like ours where it’s all about mentoring singers, for them to see her when they walk in the room… it’s just a magical moment every time.”

The Voice airs on Mondays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
