A high-powered rocker is added to the mix in NBC's "The Voice “. Green Day vocalist and guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong has joined Christina Aguilera’s team as a mentor this coming season, NBC said Thursday. Armstrong and his family are fans of the show. In a statement he said “The Voice” has gained more 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.

Adding he said, working with Aguilera is a lot of fun. Armstrong started taping Wednesday on “The Voice” which has been in production for season three since June. The Green Day band has three upcoming albums with the first, “Uno!” to be released Sept. 25.

Aside from Aquilera, the show’s coaches are the following: Cee-Lo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton. The host of the show is Carson Daly.

"The Voice" returns Sept. 10.
