Miranda Lambert to join husband Blake Shelton on The Voice

Miranda Lambert will join her husband Blake Shelton on talent show The Voice this season as a mentor for aspiring singing stars.

The House That Built Me singer will provide support for Shelton's team alongside American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson, while Jewel and Lionel Richie will offer help and advice for judge Christina Aguilera's picks.

Rounding out the new line-up of coaches are Alanis Morissette and Robin Thicke, who will work with Maroon 5 hitmaker Adam Levine, and Ne-Yo and Kenny 'Babyface' Edmonds, who will back Cee-Lo Green.

The second season of the singing competition, which has been picked up by a series of international TV networks, will debut on 5 February (12).

The mentor match-ups, which were announced on Friday (06Jan12), provide further insight into the friendship between Kelly Clarkson and the Sheltons - all three artists rang in the New Year together at the country couple's home in Oklahoma, as did Adam Levine and his supermodel girlfriend Anne Vyalitsyna.
