NBC has announced that Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong has joined "The Voice" as a mentor for Christian Aguilera's team next season, which is set to begin this fall.
Armstrong revealed that he and his family are huge fans of the show.
"The Voice has won over viewers because it's not molding artists, it's just giving them a little bit of guidance and direction without giving them a complete makeover," Armstrong said according to The AP.
He also said that working with Christina Aguilera "has been a lot of fun." He started Wednesday.
According to the LA Times, the timing for Armstrong joining the hit show couldn't be better for Green Day as they are set to release three new albums over a 5 month period. The first, Uno!, is scheduled to be released September 25, and season 3 of The Voice premieres September 10.
Earlier this month, it was announced that singer Michael Buble would be joining Blake Shelton's team and as a mentor and that Mary J. Blige would be joining Adam Levine's team, Rolling Stone reports.
According to The AP, The Voice isn't the only talent contest based show to add musical legends. With the departures of Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez, American Idol will be adding Mariah Carey as a judge, and The X Factor has signed Britney Spears and Demi Lovato.
