Puth’s 2022 position advising Cabello’s teammates was his third time mentoring contestants on “The Voice.” The Grammy winner additionally appeared on the present as an advisor to Adam Levine’s crew in 2019 and to Alicia Keys’ crew in 2016.
When he filmed the Battle Rounds with Cabello in August 2022, a reporter from Extra TV requested Puth whether or not he’d ever need to be a coach on the present.

Why Charlie Puth Tells Contestants to ‘Feel’ the Music
On “The Voice,” Puth usually suggested contestants on tapping into the emotion of their songs as a result of when a performer doesn’t successfully relay a track’s which means, it may well fall flat. In truth, it’s why he has generally turned away different individuals who needed to sing his songs — together with large stars.
During his first-ever look on The Howard Stern Show on October 18, 2022, Puth revealed that 10 large stars tried to file his track “See You Again,” however none of them sounded fairly proper. So he recorded it as an alternative and it’s his largest hit to this present day.
The track was initially meant to be uptempo as a result of, he instructed Stern, “rappy dance songs” had been so fashionable on the time, but it surely wasn’t sounding fairly proper.
According to Billboard, he wrote the track throughout a writing session with DJ Frank E and Khalifa, a “test” that Atlantic Records organized to see if Puth may truly write first rate music with a few of its star songwriters. His file take care of Ellen DeGeneres had fallen by means of and, he instructed Stern, he was “a nobody” on the time.
