At “The Voice,” a newcomer is on the scene and bringing the heat.
For the Season 22 premiere of the NBC reality singing competition on Monday night, Camila Cabello was introduced as the show’s newest coach, joining returning judges Gwen Stefani, John Legend, and Blake Shelton. Last season, Cabello made a previous appearance on the program as Legend’s celebrity advisor.
Cabello, whose musical career began with an appearance on “The X Factor” in 2012, is excited to develop the upcoming talent.
“It feels very full circle ‘cause I started on a singing competition show,” said Cabello in a prerecorded interview. “I hope these people become better artists and get to live their dreams.”
Shelton in particular is not thrilled about Cabello’s arrival, though.
“I don’t want to help her in any way,” Shelton told host Carson Daly jokingly when asked if he’d given Cabello any advice. “Because so far I’m not impressed.
Cabello was unfazed by Shelton’s abrasive welcome, though.
“That’s what a very threatened person would say,” Cabello shot back. “You’re just trying to intimidate me. It’s not working.”
