He may sing about “The A Team,” but come fall British heartthrob Ed Sheeran will be working for Team Xtina. The “Lego House” singer will be the mentor for Team Christina Aguilera on The Voice Season 5, which premieres on Monday, Sept. 23.

When the hit singing competition returns this fall, so will the four original coaches.
