Country music star and The Voice coach Blake Shelton took to social media on Monday evening to post a selfie with rap legend Snoop Dogg.
That’s right — Snoop Dogg will be joining Kelly Clarkson, Blake Shelton, John Legend and Nick Jonas as a mega mentor on NBC’s hit singing competition. It’s safe to say that Snoop Dogg has been around the block a time or two, and he will bring his experience and his style to The Voice stage.
Meanwhile, Blake Shelton and Snoop Dogg were able to snap a selfie on set on Monday. The two high-profile stars look like they are having a great time together — even if their taste in music and style are far from similar.
Hanging out with Snoop Dogg on the set of The Voice prompted Blake Shelton to post a hilarious message on Twitter. Alongside the selfie they captured, Shelton tells his fans that he and his new friend may be just as odd or even odder than Snoop Dogg and Martha Stewart.
“And y’all thought @SnoopDogg and @MarthaStewart were an odd pairing? #TeamBlake #TheVoice” Shelton wrote on Twitter.

In his new role on NBC’s singing competition, Snoop Dogg will be mentoring singers who have made it through the Battle Rounds. He will then be responsible for helping the teams prepare for the Knockouts, which will start on Monday night.
“Drawing from his unique experience experience in navigating the music and entertainment industry as a renowned rapper, producer and performer, Snoop Dogg will impart a new and fresh perspective to help the artists craft their performances,” the NBC synopsis states.
In addition, four of the artists who are saved by their coaches in the Battle Rounds will compete in a four-way knockout. Each of the four singers will work with Snoop Dogg and their respective coaches to rehearse in preparation for the knockout round.
Speaking of which, this won’t be Snoop Dogg’s first time working as a coach. He has previously appeared in the rap competition Rhythm+ FLow. And now he will join other big-name rappers to appear on The Voice such as DJ Khaled, Pharrell Williams, and Diddy.
As Blake Shelton says, bringing on Snoop Dogg may definitely seem “odd” at first. But fans are excited to see how he brings his urban style and culture to the stage.
Tune into The Voice tonight on April 19 between 8 and 10 p.m. ET on NBC to catch Snoop Dogg’s debut.
