Ed Sheeran is to lend his musical expertise by becoming one of the guest mentors on The Voice USA.

The Lego House singer will help Christina Aguilera in the battle rounds for the show's upcoming fifth season, reported Access Hollywood.

Superstar Cher will advise judge Blake Shelton, whose finalists have won The Voice the past three seasons.

OneRepublic frontman Ryan Tedder will assist Maroon 5's Adam Levine, while Adorn crooner Miguel will be Cee Lo Green's right-hand man in the singing competition.

Carson Daly will return to host the US version of The Voice when it premieres on American screens on September 23.

Paul Telegdy, president of late night and alternative programming at NBC Entertainment, said: "This group of wildly successful musicians will add their distinctive talents to their respective teams. I know Christina, Adam, Cee Lo and Blake are very much looking forward to having them come aboard."

All four original Voice coaches are back on board this season, reuniting after Christina and Cee Lo took a hiatus from the show during season four.

Ed, who is supporting Taylor Swift on the US dates of her Red tour, has had huge success with his debut album, +, which went to number one in the UK album chart and peaked at number five in the US Billboard chart.
