Breaking ‘Bad Habits’: Ed Sheeran will join ‘The Voice’ as a Mega Mentor and collab with Elton John
The Voice is set to get an injection of some serious star power. Not that it needs it, but the latest addition makes us giddy with excitement anyway.
Aiming to break any “Bad Habits” (see what we did there? OK, we’ll stop), Sheeran will be working with performers to help hone their vocal skills and prepare them for their best chance to progress in the show.
Apparently John reached out to Ed last year after his song “Step Into Christmas” made it into the top 10 on the UK charts for the first time ever.
“Elton rang me on Christmas Day to say Merry Christmas. Elton rings me almost every single day,” Sheeran said. “He said, ‘Step Into Christmas is Number 6 in the charts! I want to do another Christmas song – will you do it with me?”
Neither Ed or Elton have revealed much beyond that, but they’re doing their part to ensure it’ll be a very merry Christmas indeed.
