While the Battle Advisors will help the individual coaches with their teams, Ed Sheeran will serve a different role.
Sheeran will coach all the teams equally, giving his experience and advice to everyone with no biases or allegiances.
He will not be part of the Battle Rounds but will be in the Knockout Rounds.
The artists will pair against a teammate again, but they’ll choose their own song to perform individually while their direct competitor watches and waits
The multiple Grammy Award winner will use his experience with songwriting, musical production, and performing to mentor artists with their vocal and technical choices and tailoring the artists’ songs to their strengths to bolster each performance.
