Chris Martin on The Voice

For reasons that obviously have nothing to do with the imminent release of a new Coldplay album, frontman Chris Martin is set to appear as a mentor figure on four forthcoming episodes of The Voice, the NBC singing-competition show that’s become the heir apparent to the crumbling American Idol empire. The show’s contestants are divided up into four teams, with different famous people coaching all of them and various other famous people coming through in an adviser capacity. But Martin won’t advise any particular team, because obviously the presence of Chris Martin would be an unfair advantage to any of those teams. Instead, as USA Today reports, he’ll advise all four coaches, helping the performances of every remaining contestant. Mostly, I hope he just gives them dancing advice. Martin will appear on the show this coming Monday and Tuesday, and he’ll also be on 4/1 and 4/7. And if all goes well, I honestly would not be shocked to see him in one of those spinny chairs on some future season.

  1. All those photos above look like Chris Martin photoshopped himself into them.

  2. Great, another reason for me to not watch this show

  3. These pictures double as his first lesson as a mentor, “Chris Martin’s Perfect Press Photo Method.” Step one: put at least one hand on your ass (if not sitting). Step two: don’t look too excited. Step three: lean slightly to one side. Step four: necklace.

  4. chris martin is rich. gwyneth is rich. Why do they need so much money?

  5. The Voice could have saved some money on spinning chairs if they’d just got Stevie Wonder as a judge.
