Let the battles round begin on The Voice! For the singing duels, each Voice coach brings in a heavy-hitter in the industry to help their teams prepare for the Battle Round. Kelly Clarkson teams up with Hailee Steinfeld. Alicia Keys works with Shawn Mendes, Blake Shelton has Trace Adkins in the studio, and Adam Levine has 24-year-old Julia Michaels steer his team in the right direction. Michaels knows Mendes and Steinfeld well (they’ve worked together; see below). Michaels also reveals that Selena Gomez is her soulmate. See photos below.
Julia Michaels (born Julia Carin Cavazos) made her big break in the music world co-writing songs for Ed Sheeran (“Dive”), Justin Bieber (“Sorry”), Selena Gomez (“Good for You”), Demi Lovato (“Fire Starter”), Fifth Harmony (“Miss Movin’ On”), Hailee Steinfeld (“Love Myself”), and former Voice coach Gwen Stefani (“Used to Love You”). In 2017, she released her third EP, Nervous System – the same year she opened for Shawn Mendes’ Illuminate World Tour. Fun fact: at the age of 14, Michaels co-wrote the theme song to the Disney TV show “Austin and Ally.” The Voice airs Mondays and Tuesdays at 8pm on NBC.
