Cyrus tweeted the news, along with an image of herself paying special attention to the mentor button at Christina Aguilera's chair, adding in a hashtag her role of "#keyadviser."

Naturally, Cyrus' tongue had a starring role in the image.

But don't take her reference to Aguilera as having special meaning. Cyrus will offer her expertise to all four teams, which is what Taylor Swift did when she advised on the show in 2014.

"When Miley speaks everyone pays attention. Our artists are very lucky to have the benefit of her instincts and wisdom," NBC entertainment president, alternative and late night programming Paul Telegdy said in a statement. "Our viewers will be treated to an inside look at one of the brightest minds in music and the entertainment industry who is at the forefront of pop culture."

The new season of "The Voice" will feature coaches Aguilera (returning after a break and replacing Gwen Stefani), Blake Shelton, Adam Levine and Pharrell Williams.

Cyrus, meanwhile, also has a second TV gig coming up: She'll be starring in Woody Allen's thus-far-untitled TV show on Amazon, which is set to air in 2016.

"The Voice" returns on Monday, February 29 at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
