With the blind auditions all done and dusted, 'The Voice' season 15 progresses into the battle rounds starting today. And with this, the coaches will each have a guest coach to help them with their team for the next 4 episodes of the season.
The first guest coach is platinum-selling country star Thomas Rhett, who will be joining Team Clarkson. And the second guest coach is Keith Urban, who will be joining Team Blake. Coaches Jennifer Hudson and Adam Levine revealed they have selected Halsey and CeeLo Green, respectively, as their advisors. Advisors help and assist the contestants with their song arrangement as well as stage presence among other important tasks, during the battle rounds.
In an interview with Pop Culture, Rhett who will be joining Clarkson's team as an advisor for the first time revealed what it is like to be on the reality show. And, how he was already a huge fan of her before he could even start working with her. "I've only met Kelly one other time honestly, and when she invited me on to that show I was very honored because I've always been such a huge fan of Kelly; one of the most phenomenal, flawless voices that I've ever heard," he said. "I mean, obviously her records are great but even when you're just sitting in a room with Kelly and she just starts riffing, trying to describe how she wants something to be sung, and she looks at me and she's like 'What do you think?' And I'm like, 'I think you just said it perfectly. I don't even know how to add to that.'"

During the battle rounds, Rhett will help Clarkson mentor her team. She has artists from different genres including country and pop. And talking about the variety of artists, and how he mentored them, Rhett said: "It was really cool to get in there with people that were from so many different backgrounds; there were people in there that had never played a show in their life, there were people in there that have been touring for 10 years, so you have to adapt your advice based on the story that you knew from those people."
He even added that: "It was really nice to be able to put on my artist hat, and tried to portray advice that I had learned from, honestly, just a bunch of errors. You get to help them out in that way, whether it's performing, or whether it's going higher or going lower, helping with the band or the arrangements, and it was a really cool thing that I never got to do before."
The Voice airs Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 pm ET on NBC.
