It wasn't surprising when fans found out that Cyrus will be joining the judges in Season 11 of 'The Voice' as she was the key advisor of Blake Shelton, Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera and Pharrell Williams last season. Miley's hoping to win this season with 12 artists in her team.

Cyrus brought the iconic artist Joan Jett as her adviser on the show. Cyrus said in her recent interview W interview: "I like that I'm associated with sexuality and the kind of punk-rock shit where we just don't care. Like Madonna or Blondie or Joan Jett - Jett's the one that I still get a little shaky around. She did what I did in such a crazier way. I mean, girls then weren't supposed to wear leather pants and, like, fucking rock out. And she did."

Jett also said to an interview: "I think she's finding her way and trying to come out of what she started as. And I think it's absolutely valid - you go this way and you go that way and you try to find a center. She's being bold about it, and I admire that sort of bravery."
