When the second season of 'The Voice' begins next month, co-host Blake Shelton won't just get to hang out with pal Kelly Clarkson, who recently signed on to mentor singers on his team. The country star will also spend some quality time with wife Miranda Lambert, who has also joined the cast.

Joining Clarkson and Lambert as mentors on the new season, which kicks off Feb. 5, are Jewel and Lionel Richie, who will offer guidance to members of Christina Aguilera's team; rocker Alanis Morissette and soul man Robin Thicke, who will work with Adam Levine's squad; and R&B stars Ne-Yo and Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds, who will dispense wisdom to Cee-Lo Green's cadre of showbiz hopefuls.

The mentor pairings were announced Friday (Jan. 7), though it's likely Clarkson, the Sheltons and Levine discussed them last week, when the off-screen friends partied together on New Year's Eve.
