"The Voice" has decided to amp up the star power for the fifith season, which begins Sept. 23. The plan: Bring in stars to team with the coaches.

NBC on Monday announced the pairings: "Cher is set to work alongside coach Blake Shelton; Ed Sheeran will join forces with coach Christina Aguilera; Ryan Tedder will work with coach Adam Levine; and Miguel will team with coach CeeLo Green."

Paul Telegdy, president of late night and alternative programming at NBC Entertainment, made the announcement.

"This group of wildly successful musicians will add their distinctive talents to their respective teams," Telegdy said. "I know Christina, Adam, CeeLo and Blake are very much looking forward to having them come aboard."

The pairing of Cher and Shelton is especially fascinating. Her next album, "Closer to the Truth," will be released Sept. 24. And she performs on NBC's "Today" on Sept. 23.
