Not only does Gaga have one of the best voices ever, she’s also incredibly passionate about the arts and encouraging aspiring musicians. Who knows, she could be that one person in a room of 99 people to believe in the next great star!
Though Taylor does sing very well, she’s best known for her song-writing (or story-telling) skills. Plus, her ability to put on a show is what makes her one of the best in the business. She’d do a great job at nurturing young talent, as she herself was just a teenager when she entered the business.
Janelle is always herself and doing things her way, no matter the consequences. She doesn’t conform to what society wants her to be, which makes her music totally unique. She’d be a great coach for artists looking to stand out from the crowd.

If Adam Levine ever decides to pack his bags and leave The Voice for good, we nominate Chris Martin to take his place as the coach who is also a lead singer of a band. The Coldplay frontman has been a mentor on the show before and he’s been working in the industry for nearly 20 years, so his knowledge of the business will certainly help aspiring musicians.

There’s no denying Kacey Musgraves is probably the most popular singer in country music at the moment (sorry Blake Shelton). She’s not a flashy performer and she doesn’t have a powerhouse voice, but she does have incredible tone and memorable songs. She could teach those contestants a thing or two!

Bruno Mars is arguably the biggest male artist in music right now. He has an incredible voice, no doubt about it, but he also knows how to put on a show more than anyone else. He would not only be able to give great vocal advice, he’d also share helpful performance tips.

There are very few performers out there who can sing, dance, and write music like Justin Timberlake. His experience in the industry would come in handy as a coach, but his ability to teach stage presence could really help contestants.
He may still be young, but Shawn would make an excellent coach in the future. He came into this industry like a true Gen-Zer — on social media. While he may not be the right coach for somebody a little older, he definitely has a unique perspective on how to make it in the biz at a young age. Plus, his vocals and songwriting ability are undeniable!

Give us one reason why Rihanna shouldn’t be a coach on The Voice! She’s an incredible singer, she knows how to light up a stage, she’s hilarious, and she’d be very entertaining to watch on television.
Harry knows what it’s like to come into the music industry off of a television show, so he’d definitely be able to relate to the contestants. Just like current coach (and Idol alum) Kelly Clarkson, he could bring his own experiences to the competition and pull out the best in these contestants.
The Voice has been on-air for a whopping 16 seasons — in the U.S., at least — and has featured a number of all-star coaches.
