You can stand under her umbrella! NBC has just announced that Rihanna will be the key advisor for all judges’ teams on season nine of ‘The Voice!’
From the big stage to The Voice stage! Bob Greenblatt, the chairman of NBC Entertainment, announced that Rihanna, 27, will be joining the NBC hit show, during the TCA press tour in Beverly Hills, California on August 13.
It makes sense that Ri-Ri will be joining, as she’s someone who definitely knows how to create a hit song! Plus, she’ll have quite the chemistry with returning judges, Gwen Stefani, Blake Shelton, Adam Levine and Pharrell. Past key advisors for the show include Nate Ruess, Taylor Swift, and Chris Martin.
We’ve actually known for a while that NBC has been eyeing Ri-Ri!
“The producers feel the best chance they have is with Rihanna and they would love that because they haven’t had a black female judge yet, and the audience she would bring would be amazing and they know she would be incredible,” an insider told us. “Mark Burnett is very convincing so we will see what happens!”
Do you agree, HollywoodLifers? Do you think Rihanna will make a great advisor this season? The Voice returns to Mondays and Tuesdays nights on NBC on Sept. 21 at 8PM.
