The new season of “The Voice” doesn’t start until February 24 but “Extra” just revealed that  Jill Scott will be a guest mentor for team Usher.

Usher told “Extra’s” Renee Bargh, “That’s my secret weapon, incredible, as a writer, as a musician, as an actress, all those elements really help to prepare artists.”

Jill was on board immediately when Usher picked her.  “When Usher calls, you take the call.”

The Grammy winner also offered some advice to the new contestants, “Listen to your gut, follow your heart and it will lead you somewhere special.”

Watch the season premiere of “The Voice” at 8 PM Monday, Feb. 24 on NBC.

    jill should be a judge.

    it would be amazing if jill or erykah joined as coaches, even mary j.

    honestly, they should really have a black woman on there who can sing. having said that, i like shakira a lot and loved the support she showed for sasha last year. i’ve noticed the black women contestants are not well supported on that show. usher and cee lo do not support the black women contestants.

  • I’m happy for Jill because these reality competition shows are the only way to get your music in front of an audience. I’m only sorry for her ears since Jill is real singer unlike some of the other judges on these shows (read: JLO).

  • I’m glad to see Jill will be a guest judge. She is such a good singer.

    Well, lets just hope that Usher gives her something real to work with. His judging choices have been questionable.
