'The Voice': Jill Scott Joins Team Usher as Guest Mentor!

The new season of “The Voice” doesn’t kick off until Feb. 24, but “Extra” can exclusively reveal that Grammy winner Jill Scott will be a guest mentor for team Usher!

Usher told “Extra’s” Renee Bargh, “That’s my secret weapon, incredible, as a writer, as a musician, as an actress, all those elements really help to prepare artists.”
