The hip-hop icon will mentor the remaining artists who have made it through the Battle Rounds, as each team prepares for the Knockouts beginning Monday, April 19.
During the Knockout Rounds, artists are paired against a teammate, but select their own song to perform individually while their direct competitor watches.
Snoop Dogg will tap into his experience as a rapper, producer and performer, to help the up-and-coming artists fine tune their performances. Coaches will later choose the winner to advance from their team. Each coach has one steal in the Knockouts.
Known for such hits as Who Am I (What’s My Name), Gin And Juice, Drop It Like It’s Hot, and I Wanna Rock, Snoop is a West Coast rap legend. He has released 19 studio albums, sold over 40 million albums worldwide, and received multiple Grammy nominations.
The Voice 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.
On Tuesday, Ariana Grande revealed she’ll be replacing Nick Jonas as a coach when the show returns for season 21 this fall.
The Voice airs Monday nights at 8/7c on NBC.
