“Yeah, I think the person is like one of the most successful people in music but…” Legend added. And the next thing we see is the “Shake it Off” hitmaker emerge from a trailer behind them.

According to the outlet:

During the Knockout Rounds, the competing artists will be paired with a teammate and select their own songs to perform individually. Swift will be on-hand to work with all four coaches and their teams to provide feedback, suggestions and praise as the artists prepare for their performances.

It is not the first time Swift has been on the show. The singer was a Mega Mentor during the seventh season in 2014.

“The Voice” hits the air September 23.
