Green Day frontman and guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong has joined the singing contest as a mentor to Christina Aguilera’s team this coming third season of ‘The Voice‘ NBC said Thursday.
In a statement, Armstrong said he and his family are fans of the show.
“The Voice” has won over viewers because “it’s not molding artists, it’s just giving them a little bit of guidance and direction without giving them a complete makeover,” he said.

Besides, Armstrong says, working with Aguilera is “a lot of fun.”
He started taping Wednesday which has been in production for season three since June.
Reality singing shows are competing for big-name music stars. ‘American Idol‘ is adding diva Mariah Carey as one of the judges, while ‘The X Factor‘ signed Britney Spears and Demi Lovato.
Billie Joe Armstrong completes the list of mentors including Michael Buble for Team Blake, Mary J. Blige for Team Adam and Rob Thomas for Team Cee Lo.
‘The Voice’ returns Sept. 10 only on NBC.
