Taylor Swift has ‘cried’ as mega mentor on The Voice

BANG! NEWS – Taylor Swift has already had a few tears since being the mega mentor on The Voice USA because of the talented acts.

The ME! hitmaker will be seen on season 17 of the singing competition, which debuts on September 23 on NBC, helping the contestants ahead of their performances – and some of the acts have already pulled at her heartstrings.

Coach Kelly Clarkson told PEOPLE.com, “She cares about the artists – that’s what I loved about working with her the first time. I loved that she actually cared and invested. She cried a couple of times. She was really into it.”

And she’s not the only one who has been impressed by the 29-year-old pop star’s expertise as Gwen Stefani thinks Taylor’s skills in songwriting could help acts. She explained, “On this show, you’re always looking for these singers that are these super talented (artistes) that have really good voices.

“But I think Taylor’s gift is more her songwriting, and I feel like that’s the same for me so I thought we related to each other a lot. There’s so much to it, and she had so much to offer as far as advice. It’s pretty rare what she has accomplished. She’s just so relatable in the way she writes, especially to girls – and to me.”
