Mariah Carey will be joining NBC’s The Voice as a key adviser, the singer announced on the Today show. The 48-year-old singer will be an adviser on Jennifer Hudson’s team this season during the show’s Knockout Rounds.

“The sessions with the contestants, some of them have completely blown me away,” Carey said about her experience on the series. “It’s like a humbling experience to be around all the raw talent,” she continued. “It’s nice to see other people and what they’re doing and what they’re working with and what they’re bringing to the table in terms of their contributions as artists. So I really enjoyed it.”

Carey will be featured during next week’s episodes. Her upcoming gig comes five years after she was a judge on American Idol.

Carey recently announced a new world tour in support of her upcoming 15th studio album Caution, which is set to arrive November 16th. The North American leg of the tour begins February 27th in Dallas.
