Rihanna’s new role on The Voice DOESN’T mean that she’s a judge

Rihanna has just gone and secured herself a place on American version of the talent show, The Voice. 

And so we all assumed that mean she'd be a judge. 

NBC revealed the news this week that the singer will be appearing on the forthcoming new season of the show.

However – and here comes the twist, the role is not one of a judge, but she will serve as a "key advisor" to judges Gwen Stefani, Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, and Pharrell Williams.

Rihanna will be in good company though: former advisors include Alicia Keys and Miranda Lambert.

"This is one of music's true supervisors coming on board to influence the lives and careers of the performers," NBC said in the press release. 

The show is to air its ninth season from next month and we're hoping with Rihanna on board it will produce some AMAZING super stars.
