With tonight's battle rounds comes a new cast of celebrity mentors. On Team Christina are singers Jewel and Lionel Richie. Social media correspondent, Christina Milian, interviewed Jewel. The two discussed Jewel's personal mentors and Jewel's album of lullabies written for her new son Kase Townes Murray (born July 2011).
Jewel tells Christina that she and her husband, rodeo cowboy Ty Murray, watch the show regularly (yeah, her and most of America).
But it was Lionel Richie's interview with Christina that offered some spoilers. The interview cut back and forth between shots of Lionel talking to the social media correspondent and footage from the battle rounds. We know that Jesse Campbell and Anthony Evans will be two of the contestants from Team Christina to battle tonight, but we've been wondering if there will be more than one battle per team tonight since each episode is two hours long this year.
In Lionel's interview we see him meeting MC Moses Stone, family man Jonathas, and singer Sera Hill taking the stage. These shots could be of later episodes, but they could also imply that two of these three contestants will be the second set of duets.
Looks like you'll have to tune in with us tonight to find out who is actually performing in the battle rounds. What do you think of the mentors on Team Christina? Comment below!
