  • Yes for Dianna Agron! She was the last major cast member yet to mentor on the show so it’s nice to see her joining the rest of them.

  • Ummm… Alyssa Milano and Shannyn Sossamon both on my TV at the same time? I don’t know if my heart can take it. Always had a huge crush on Ms. Milano and have found Ms. Sossamon to be quite lovely ever since A Knight’s Tale.

  • Buble mentored extensively for Idol Australia and he was completely awesome – great mentor, very funny, very generous, and he really helped the contestants. He’ll be great on the Voice.

  • Announcing these two as the last mentors means that Damian McGinty won’t be on as mentor. That’s the worst news!
