The latest round of mentors for The Voice’s coaching panel has been announced for season 11 and they include both Bette Midler and Joan Jett.
Jett will work with Miley Cyrus. Sammy Hagar will also be a mentor to Adam Levine’s team, and Charlie Puth has been paired with Alicia Keys.
Shelton, who once had his then-wife Miranda Lambert as a coach, then current girlfriend and former Voice coach, Gwen Stefani, will now get Midler.
During season 9, Levine said that if he could pick a coach, it would be Midler.
“I dig you, Bette,” Levine said at the time. “Come and join us!”
However, she will be with his rival, Shelton.
Midler tweeted her excitement on July 28.
“Yes it’s true. I am a mentor for
#teamblake on @NBCTheVoice. I had a great time and we had a hell of a team. Airs in October,” she said.

Cyrus chose Jett, not surprising after joking last year about wanting to have sex with her. She has also called her an “inspiration” and “what Superwoman really should be.”
Van Halen’s former lead singer, Hagar, will work with Levine. Last year, the two spent time in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, and even performed an AC/DC duet at Hagar’s Bar, Cabo Wabo Cantina in January.
Puth, 24-year-old pop singer, was chosen by Keys.
The Voice’s 11th season will kick off Sunday, Aug. 21 with a special. The official premiere will be Monday, Sept. 19.
