Green Day vo­cal­ist joins The Voice

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - TELEVISION -

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.
