This Year's Comeback Coach on 'The Voice' Is Bebe Rexha — and She's Shaking up the Competition

By Allison Cacich

Since it first premiered in 2011, The Voice has gone through many changes. There have been a total of 13 coaches, the addition of the Knockout Round, and the introduction of the "Block" and "Save" buttons. But the newest development is the comeback coach — aka a fifth coach who mentors contestants that did not turn a chair in the blind auditions.

Country singer Kelsea Ballerini served as the series’ first-ever comeback coach in Season 15, and pop artist Bebe Rexha will take her place for Season 16.

Who is Bebe Rexha?

The Brooklyn-born 29-year-old first found success as a songwriter in 2013, receiving credits for the Eminem/Rihanna song "The Monster," Selena Gomez’s "Like a Champion," and Iggy Azalea’s "Team."

She established herself as a talented vocalist by being featured on tracks such as G-Eazy’s "Me, Myself & I," which she co-wrote, and David Guetta’s "Hey Mama." The blonde beauty released her debut studio album, "Expectations," in June 2018, and her single with Florida Georgia Line, "Meant to Be," was nominated in the Best Country Duo/Group Performance category at the 2019 Grammys. Bebe was also nominated for Best New Artist, but lost to fellow pop star Dua Lipa.
