A visitor to season 24 is returning for a Mega-role in season 25 of The Voice.

By Cassidy Ward

Season 25 of The Voice is well underway, and the results of the Battles aren’t the only details being revealed. Over the years, the format of the show has changed in subtle ways. Coaches have come and gone, new abilities like Steals and Blocks have been introduced, and even phases of the competition have been replaced.

How to Watch

Watch The Voice Mondays and Tuesdays at 8/7c on NBC and next day on Peacock. 

Historically, Coaches have brought in a rogue’s gallery of celebrity advisors and mentors to help develop their Teams and make decisions. In addition to the Coaches, contestants have access to backing bands, advisors, and mentors to help mold their performances. In season 25, artists on The Voice will all get guidance from the same person: Mega Mentor, Keith Urban.

Yes, the Grammy-winning country star will grace our screens to help the Coaches prepare for the Knockouts, which begin on Monday, April 8.

What to know about Season 25 Mega Mentor, Keith Urban

Perhaps we should have guessed that Urban would make an appearance in some capacity during season 25 of The Voice, considering that he topped off the season 24 finale with a performance of “Blue Ain’t Your Color.” (Since then, he's released new singles "Straight Line" and "Messed Up As Me". In fact, Urban is an old friend of The Voice on more than one continent.

Urban served as a Coach on The Voice Australia alongside Seal, Delta Goodrem, and Joel Madden of Good Charlotte. After leaving for a few years, Urban returned to Coach The Voice Australia on seasons 10 and 11. Urban’s expertise extends far beyond Coaching duties and finale performances, over the last couple of decades he’s cemented himself as one of the most recognizable and bankable names in Country Music.

Since the release of his self-titled album in 1991, Urban has stacked up 15 Academy of Country Music Awards, four Grammys, and a Golden Globe nomination for his song “For You” in the film Act of Valor. The list of awards Urban has won or been nominated for by the Academy of Country Music, Billboard, the Grammys, and the People’s Choice Awards is long enough to wrap yourself in and survive the winter. He even earned himself a sweet surfboard at the Teen Choice Awards in 2011. To top it off, Urban was recently announced as a performer at the upcoming 2024 CMT Music Awards. 

And of course, the star has been married to beloved Oscar-winning actress Nicole Kidman for 18 years. The two share daughters Sunday, 15, and Rose, 13.

What is a Mega Mentor on The Voice?

Part of the appeal of The Voice is the opportunity contestants have for face time with some of the most successful names in the recording game. Each artist competes under the guidance of one of the four Coaches: John Legend, Chance the Rapper, Reba McEntire, and Dan + Shay.
