Judd is the latest country music superstar to join the show following last season’s exit of Blake Shelton. Fellow country music star Reba McEntire served as a mega mentor for Season 23 and was promoted to judge for the current Season 24.
Judd will mentor the artists who have made it through the Battle Rounds as teams prepare for the three-way Knockouts beginning Nov. 6.
Judd became a musical force with the release of her 1992 self-titled 5-time platinum solo debut album. She went on to win five Grammy awards and was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame with her late mother Naomi. Her hits include “No One Else on Earth,” the nearly 3x-platinum “Tell Me Why,” “She Is His Only Need,” “Girls With Guitars” and “I Saw The Light”. She most recently received the Country Champion Award at the inaugural People’s Choice Country Awards. Her highly anticipated solo tour “Back to Wy” is currently underway.
Several weeks into the new season, The Voice is NBC’s most-watched show with 8.6 million viewers per episode across all platforms (7-day viewing), according to Nielsen and the network.
The Voice airs Mondays (8-10 p.m. ET/PT) and Tuesdays (9-10 p.m. ET/PT) on NBC and next day on Peacock.
The Voice is a presentation of MGM Television, Warner Bros. Unscripted Television in association with Warner Horizon, and ITV Studios The Voice USA, Inc. The series was created by John de Mol, who serves as an executive producer along with Mark Burnett, Audrey Morrissey, Amanda Zucker, Kyra Thompson and Adam H. Sher.
