Mary J. Blige will share her talents as an adviser on NBC’s "The Voice" this fall. The Queen of Hip Hop-Soul will share years of experience and wisdom with the hopeful singers as a mentor for Adam Levine’s team, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

"I’ve always been a huge fan of Mary J. Blige," said Levine in a recent interview with Rolling Stone. "So it’s been great having her on 'The Voice' as an adviser to my team."

MJB has garnered nine Grammy Awards and numerous honors throughout the span of her career. On the show, she will meet with contestants, give pre-performance pep talks, and serve as an overall mentor. Singer Michael Buble also will be an adviser for Blake Shelton’s team. NBC has yet to announce the celebrity advisers for Cee Lo Green and Christina Aguilera’s teams. 

Gearing up to tour with D’Angelo on August 18, the soul singer adds the NBC reality competition to her growing list of accomplishments in 2012. She also starred in the musical comedy film, Rock of Ages, which was released last month. 

The third season of "The Voice" will hit NBC on September 10.
