NBC says The Voice is getting four new advisers, with Cher among them.

The network said Monday that coach Blake Shelton picked Cher to work with in the upcoming fifth season. As an adviser, the pop star will help Shelton groom his chosen contestants as they try to advance in the singing contest.

The Voice, hosted by Carson Daly, returns Sept. 23 on NBC.

Cher: If 'The Voice' was around when I was starting out, I wouldn't have played roller rinks

When you’ve been in the business as long as Cher has, you have loads of perspective from more than 40 years of career ups and downs. On Tuesday night’s episode of The Voice, after her first live performance in a decade, Cher took the time to talk to EW from her lofty position as the Goddess of Pop.

She first looked at me and wondered aloud why they were letting 3-year-olds interview her, but she seemed enthusiastic about the new wave of musical TV. Coming from a TV background, thanks to her ’70s variety show with then-husband Sonny Bono, Cher said she would have loved to have had the opportunities afforded by shows like The Voice.

“Going on shows like this, this is an amazing thing. … When I first started, we played bowling alleys and roller rinks,” she recalled. “We didn’t get to go on anything. We got to go on stuff when we were famous, but this is amazing, when you have actual people who have been in the business, been successful and want to help you. You can bypass a lot of trashy stuff.”

If  given the opportunity she would’ve been first in line to audition for a singing competition show. “Oh gosh, yeah, are you kidding? I would’ve been like, ‘Let me in!'”

'Dear Mom, Love Cher' review: Inside the crazy, talented life of Georgia Holt

For Mother’s Day, Lifetime is celebrating the most important mama of all: Georgia Holt, who gave us Cher. The result is Dear Mom, Love Cher, a candid, if blithely rose-colored documentary. There are great revelations: Mama Cher can sing! Mama Cher almost aborted baby Cher!

Writer-director P. David Ebersole gathers Cher (billed as a producer and “creator”), her sister Georganne, and Georgia all together on a massive Malibu couch that anchors the hour. We keep coming back to it, with mom in the middle, as she and her daughters spill out more and more details about the family’s extended, hardscrabble history. Once, the family matriarch dreamed of Georgia’s grandfather coming “down in little pieces” from the sky (she was psychic, you see) and the next day, he blew himself up with dynamite. “I think we can walk the narrow razor of white trash only so long,” Cher worries — and we still haven’t heard about Georgia’s father.
