As the first superstar to come from TV’s reality singing competitions, she’s been in high demand as a judge and mentor on those shows. This season, she’s sharing her experience and advice as a coach on The Voice, and she’s thrilled that she can reach out to contestants who are going through what she went through at the start of her career.
