Ed Sheeran is the Mega Mentor
According to Idol Forums, which often posts accurate leaks and spoilers from “The Voice” and “American Idol” sets, the season 21 Mega Mentor is none other than Grammy award-winning superstar Ed Sheeran.
Sheeran joins the likes of Taylor Swift and Snoop Dogg, who have both served as “The Voice” mega mentors in the past.
The Coaches Leveled Up Their Banter
While the coaches are always bantering back and forth on “The Voice,” especially during blind auditions, the promotions that have been released show that they may have gotten even more comfortable with one another and thrown more jabs back and forth.
In one promotion, Blake Shelton compares himself to Tom Brady.
In the video, Shelton talks about the fact that he’s always bragging about his high number of wins, but he doesn’t care.
“It’s fun to have your own TV show,” Shelton tells the other coaches at one point. “This is mine. I’ve had this one for years.”
The newest coach on the scene, Ariana Grande, is already tired of Shelton’s bragging.
“I think we’re all equally exhausted by the confidence of Blake Shelton,” Grande says. “Just, the constant drilling of his kingdom that is ‘The Voice.’ It is exhausting.”
Shelton has his own way of justifying his boasting.
“Do you ever notice how when Tom Brady has haters he doesn’t defend himself against them?” Shelton asks the other coaches, prompting Grande to ask if Brady talks himself up the same way. “Well, he should! Tom Brady has seven championships. I have eight.”
Legend also shared that he thinks that Shelton thinks he’s the boss even though “His name is not on my checks.”
