Green Day vocalist joins The Voice
US version of The Voice is adding a high-powered rocker to the mix. Green Day vocalist and guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong (pictured) is joining the talent contest as a mentor to Christina Aguilera’s team this coming season.
Armstrong says The Voice has won over viewers because it helps guide contestants but avoids, in his words, ‘‘giving them a complete makeover’’.
More talent shows are putting on big-name music stars with American Idol adding Mariah Carey as a judge.
