"The Voice" USA Season 9 (2015) is all set to return in a few weeks with some new faces who are expected to join the hit talent show. Spoilers have it that the organisers of the show have made a few changes, including bringing in Selena Gomez, ex-girlfriend of Justin Bieber.

"The Voice" Twitter account has confirmed that Selena Gomez will team up with coach Gwen Stefani on Season 9 of NBC's popular show. She will join John Fogerty, team advisor for Adam Levine, and Brad Paisley for Blake Shelton.

Interestingly, news of Selena Gomez's participation in the show came a few weeks after several reports suggested that her ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber will join the show.

It was announced earlier that Rihanna will be the key advisor for the season. However, advisor for Team Pharrell is yet to be announced.

NBC had already announced that Brad Paisley will join "The Voice" as Team Blake's advisor.

"He's really been good to me, and so the fact that I was able to get him here and and advise my team made perfect sense to me because he was actually a mentor for me," Shelton told People magazine. 

"If you know anything about country music, you know who Brad Paisley is. He's entertainer of the year. He's male vocalist of the year. He's sold millions of albums, and sold out tours. He's just one of the more respected singers. and just [among] people in the music industry and Nashville."

Paisley also said that he would love to work with Shelton.

"I wouldn't want to do this with anyone else – he's a blast to be around," Paisley said of Shelton. "We debuted [in country music] roughly around the same time ... And we toured together in the struggling years. We have some great memories that I wouldn't trade for anything."

Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Pharrell Williams and Gwen Stefani are coaches for Season 9 of "The Voice" USA. Stefani is returning to the show after being replaced by Christina Aguilera in Season 8. Carson Daly will return as the host.

"The Voice" Season 9 will start on 21 September at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
