NBC are pulling out the big guns. The Voice network has just announced that they’ll be bringing in big names to support the coaches (judges) during the “Battles” portion of the show.

NBC must have been waiting to see how The Voice did during its premiere week before agreeing to drop more money to get these names involved. We’re glad to see NBC up’ing their support for what looks to be a great new show.

NBC Press Release:

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. – April 29, 2011 – NBC revealed that it will add more star-power to its new vocal competition series “The Voice” with singers Reba, Monica, Sia (Furler) and music producer Adam Blackstone joining the series as new advisers who will lend their experience and talents to musician coaches Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton for the next “Battles” competition phase.

Aguilera (@therealxtina) will team up with singer/songwriter Sia (@Siamusic), Levine (@adamlevine) with Maroon 5 Music Director Blackstone (@bassicblack), Green (@CeeLoGreen) with singer Monica (@MonicaMyLife), and Shelton (@blakeshelton) with veteran singer Reba (@Reba) — eventually cutting their teams in half by pitting two of their own artists against each other in a series of dueling duets.

Each of the musician coaches chose their advisers to help them at the next “Battles” stage that lasts across four episodes. Reba, Monica, Sia and Blackstone were picked because they are in the trusted inner circle of the respective musician coach that they are helping. They are being brought in by the musician coaches to bring out the best in each of their artists, help to select songs that suit specific vocal styles and provide advice for performance. These adviser rosters will expand when the competition moves on to the live performance stage.

Which of these supporting coaches would you want to work with?
