Keith Urban Joins ‘The Voice’ Season 25 as Mega Mentor

Keith Urban will serve as the mega mentor on Season 25 of “The Voice” on NBC.

The season, which premiered on Feb. 26, is led by coaches Chance the Rapper, Dan + Shay, John Legend and Reba McEntire. Beginning with the April 8 episode, Urban will mentor the remaining artists who have made it through the battle rounds as each team prepares for the knockouts, where artists are paired with a teammate but must select their own songs to perform individually. Coaches will choose the winner from their team to advance to the playoffs, the last round before live shows. Each coach has the opportunity to steal one singer from another coach during knockouts.
