Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong has joined The Voice, the NBC-TV singing competition program. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Armstrong will act as a mentor to Christina Aguilera's team on the show. In a statement, Armstrong said that he and his family are fans of the show, adding that the show is "not molding artists, it's just giving them a little bit of guidance and direction without giving them a complete makeover." He also called working with Aguilera "a lot of fun."
Armstrong began taping his segments for the show on Wednesday (July 25th), joining previously announced season three mentors Rob Thomas, Mary J. Blige and Michael Buble.
The show's third season premieres on September 10th.
Green Day will release the first of three new albums, Uno!, on September 25th, to be followed by Dos! in November and Tre! in January.
The first single from Uno!, "Oh Love," has leaped into the Modern Rock Top 10 in its second week of airplay.
