During the Knockout rounds, the artists are paired with a teammate and they are to select their own songs to perform individually. Swift will act as a second coach to provide feedback, suggestions, and have an overall preview of all of the performances.

Other mentors involved in The Voice season 17 include Normani for Team Kelly, Will.i.am for Team Gwen, Usher for Team Legend, and Darius Rucker for Team Blake.

Swift was previously Mega Mentor during season seven of The Voice. The 10-time Grammy winner also performed “ME!” during the season 16 finale.

Swift landed her sixth number 1 album on the Billboard 200 with her newest offering. It’s no other than her studio album Lover.

Season 17 will be the first season without longtime coach Adam Levine. Levine abruptly left the show after 16 seasons in a surprise announcement. It was then later announced that Stefani, who has served as a coach before, was immediately named his replacement.

The Voice season 17 premieres Monday, Sept. 23 at 8 p.m. on NBC.
