UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - June 27, 2011 - All four musician coaches - Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton - will team up to perform the Rolling Stones' classic "You Can't Always Get What You Want" on the live performance of NBC's "The Voice," Tuesday, June 28 (9-11 p.m. ET). In addition, country star Brad Paisley joins fellow R&B/pop sensations Pitbull and Ne-Yo as special guest performers on the hit vocal competition series that same night.

The announcements were made by Paul Telegdy, Executive Vice President, Alternative Programming, NBC and Universal Media Studios.

"We are excited to see all of our musician coaches perform together as we near the much-anticipated finale of our first season," said Telegdy. "Likewise, we gladly welcome such a wide variety of established musical stars as Brad Paisley, Pitbull and Ne-Yo to our thrilling performance show that precedes the results show the next night. As time goes by, 'The Voice' is creating an impact and attracting more recognized recording stars who want to join the festivities."

The four finalists are Dia Frampton, Javier Colon, Beverly McClellan and Vicci Martinez, who will perform on the June 28 show with the winner announced on Wednesday, June 29 (9-11 p.m. ET).

The three-time Grammy Award-winning Paisley will perform "Don't Drink the Water" with Shelton. It is from Paisley's recently-released album "This Is Country Music," which includes the song featuring Shelton.

Pitbull featuring Ne-Yo also will take the stage to perform their global smash "Give Me Everything" from Pitbull's new album "Planet Pit."

Paisley is the Country Music Association's (CMA) reigning Entertainer of the Year and his H2O Tour was 2010's top country trek in attendance. He's also sold more than 12 million albums and scored 19 #1 hits on country radio. Paisley has won 14 CMA Awards, including Male Vocalist of the Year three times and received a record-setting five consecutive Academy of Country Music (ACM) Male Vocalist honors that count among his 14 ACM wins. "This Is Country Music" is Paisley's ninth studio album and is a heartfelt homage to the music he's loved since childhood. His debut album was "Who Needs Pictures" in 1999.

Pitbull is an international music sensation. His new album, "Planet Pit," features a host of pop music luminaries including Marc Anthony, Enrique Iglesias, Jamie Foxx, Chris Brown, T-Pain and Kelly Rowland as well as star-studded producers Dr. Luke, Max Martin, David Guetta and Benny Blanco. The knockout single "Give Me Everything" featuring NeYo is currently #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 and a Top 10 hit in 15 countries. Pitbull has also collaborated with some of music's biggest stars including Jennifer Lopez, Enrique Iglesias, Usher and Shakira, to name a few. His last album, "Starring in Rebelution," produced such world-wide hits as "I Know You Want Me (Calle Ocho)" and club favorite "Hotel Room Service." Last year, Pitbull released his first Spanish-language album, "Armando," which features the Top 5 Latin Billboard pop single "Bon Bon."

Ne-Yo is a Grammy Award-winning singer, a songwriter, composer, and producer. In less than five years, he's produced three #1 albums and sold more than 10 million copies worldwide. His fourth project, "Libra Scale," is a concept album that tells the story of the rise of R&B's first superhero squad. For the lead single, "Beautiful Monster," he re-teamed with StarGate, the Norwegian production duo that has helped him create such songs as "So Sick" and "Miss Independent." As a top industry songwriter, Ne-Yo has penned #1 hits for Beyonce ("Irreplaceable"), Rihanna ("Take a Bow") and Mario ("Let Me Love You"), as well as chart-toppers for Celine Dion, Mary J. Blige, Usher, Kanye West and Lionel Richie. All three of Ne-Yo's previous albums -- "In My Own Words," "Because of You" and "Year of the Gentleman" -- have gone platinum and produced such Top 10 hits as "Sexy Love," "Because of You," "Mad" and "Closer." He's written music for the films "The Princess and the Frog," "Precious: Based on the Novel 'Push' by Sapphire," "I Can Do Bad All by Myself." Ne-Yo also has appeared in the films "Stomp the Yard," "Save the Last Dance 2," "Red Tails" and "Battle: Los Angeles."

"The Voice" is an innovative vocal competition series modeled after Holland's top-rated vocal talent discovery show, "The Voice of Holland." The series is hosted by Carson Daly and features the musician coaches working through the various phases of the competition with only the most talented vocalists. The show's second season will air mid-season Mondays (8-10 p.m. ET).

In addition, "The Voice" continues to push the boundaries between broadcast and online by bringing social media conversations to the on-air show. Bridging the gap between on-air and online is Social Media Correspondent Alison Haislip ("Attack of the Show!"), who makes regular appearances during the live broadcasts. Haislip engages fans and connects them to artists and coaches from "The Voice Social Media Room" via Facebook, Twitter, NBC.com and NBC Live. In the live shows, fans who use #TheVoice or tweet to the show, coaches or artists' official handles may see their tweets appear in the lower third of the screen during cutaways during the live show.

For a period following each episode, eligible voters have four ways to vote for that night's artists/contestants on "The Voice": through toll-free phone calls, through online votes via NBC.com and the NBC Live online and iPad companion viewing app, and purchasing songs on iTunes. Votes are limited to 10 times via toll-free phone call per artist per originating phone number; up to 10 times through NBC.com or the NBC Live app per artist per e-mail address; and up to 10 times per artist per iTunes account, by purchasing the contestant's then-eligible song through iTunes (up to a maximum of 10 copies).

"The Voice" is a presentation of Mark Burnett's One Three Inc., Talpa Content USA, Inc. and Warner Horizon Television. The series is created by John de Mol, who executive-produces along with Burnett, Audrey Morrissey and Stijn Bakkers.
