Taylor Swift is an award-winning country and pop superstar, role model to young women and owner of a cat model. Is there anything she can't do? Well, now she can add to her resume a brand new title: mentor on "The Voice."

"Seven-time Grammy winner Taylor Swift is going to act as the sole mentor for all of our teams during the knock-out round," TODAY's Carson Daly (who also emcees the hit NBC reality competition series) announced Friday. 

"We're happy to have her," he added.

Welcome to the NBC and "Voice" families, Taylor! Please bring little Olivia Benson along, if you can. She's a star, too!

"The Voice" airs Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
