Country-turned-pop superstar Taylor Swift is set to join the cast of NBC’s The Voice, serving as a “Mega Mentor” for the reality singing competition’s upcoming 17th season.

Revealed in a goofy video posted to social media Monday (September 16), Swift can be seen “on set” of the popular show alongside coaches Blake Shelton and John Legend. The two stars have heard a rumor that one of the most successful artists in music is going to guest on the new season, and they’re trying to figure out who that might be. Shelton is obviously stumped since he’s already on the show, when Swift casually walks out of a production trailer.

“We promise that you’ll never find another Mega Mentor like her,” the post reads, referencing Swift’s recent single “ME!” featuring Brendon Urie of Panic! at the Disco.

Joining Shelton and Legend, plus coaches Kelly Clarkson and Gwen Stefani, Swift’s role as mentor will find her helping prepare contestants from all four teams for this season’s knockout rounds — which are set to begin in late October. It’s not the first time Swift has done so, having previously mentored hopeful stars during season seven of the show. Other mentors for this year include Normani, Will.i.am, Usher and Darius Rucker.

The Voice season 17 premieres Monday (September 23) at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
