Selena Gomez is heading to ‘The Voice’ and she’s gearing up in a big way! A source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that the singer wants nothing more than to make the most of her ‘Voice’ debut and even reached out to her bestie Taylor Swift for advice!
The time has finally come! Selena Gomez, 23, is set to make her debut on The Voice with the start of the battle rounds on Oct. 12 and the “Good For You” singer isn’t wasting any time getting into the groove of things. In preparation for her role as a mentor on Gwen Stefani’s, 45, team, Selena has reached out to none other than her bestie Taylor Swift, 25, for advice, HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned. Here’s how Tay is helping her out.
“Taylor has been giving Selena advice about The Voice,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Taylor has mentored before and she has told Selena what to expect and what to do to make it a complete success. Taylor had a lot of fun when she did it and wants Selena to have the same experience.”
We absolutely love how supportive Tay and Selena are of each other and their careers. And who better to give Selena advice than one of the show’s best advisors of all time? As you might recall, Taylor appeared during the reality show’s seventh season as a key advisor during the Knockout Rounds. The “Bad Blood” singer did an amazing job sharing her wisdom with the remaining contestants, and even helped a few to move on to the live shows. Clearly, Selena was in good hands!
Meanwhile, we recently got a sneak peek at Selena’s highly-anticipated appearance in a new preview clip that shows her listening to every contestant on Team Gwen and sharing her best advice. “What I love about The Voice is that it’s all about embracing who you are inside,” Selena says in the clip. “It’s really beautiful.” Things continue to get very intense and emotional when contestants Chase Kerby and Korin Bukowski start singing “Samson” by Regina Spektor, which causes Selena to become visibly moved. Gwen even has to get up and walk around because it’s just too much to handle. Both Selena and Gwen say they got goosebumps because of Chase and Korin, which is sure to make Gwen’s decision a difficult one.
The Voice airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET and Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET on NBC.
