Four of the music industry's top producers - Dave Stewart, Mark Ronson, Ryan Tedder and Scott Hendricks - are set to serve as advisers for the remaining artists on "The Voice," beginning Monday, April 20 (8-10 p.m. ET/PT).

Ronson will join Christina Aguilera's team, Tedder will assist Pharrell Williams' team, Hendricks will bring his expertise to Blake Shelton's team and Stewart joins forces with Adam Levine's team.

Grammy and Golden Globe Award-winning acclaimed songwriter, musician and Eurythmics co-founder Stewart is recognized as one of the most respected and accomplished talents in the music industry today with a music career spanning three decades and more than 100 million album sales. Stewart co-wrote and produced each Eurythmics album in his world-famous duo with Annie Lennox, including the well-known hits "Sweet Dreams Are Made of This," "Here Comes the Rain Again" and "Would I Lie to You?". He has also produced albums and co-written songs with Tom Petty, Gwen Stefani, Jon Bon Jovi, Stevie Nicks, Bryan Ferry, Katy Perry, Mick Jagger, Bono, Sinead O'Connor, Joss Stone and many others. Currently, he has five freshly produced albums preparing for release, including the debut album from Warner Bros. artist Kaya Stewart.

Grammy-winning producer and musician Ronson has taken over the international charts in 2015 with the smash hit "Uptown Funk," featuring Bruno Mars. The record-breaking single has held on to the No. 1 position on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for 14 weeks (making it the longest-running No. 1 in the 2010s), and topped the charts in more than 20 countries. The single is from Ronson's fourth album, "Uptown Special," which is his most inventive work to date. Taken as a whole, the album is inspired by his musical beginnings. Other superstar artists Ronson has worked with include Paul McCartney and Amy Winehouse.

Tedder has proven himself a gifted songwriter and producer for not only the band he founded, OneRepublic, but also for the talented lineup of artists that he works with, including Adele, Beyoncé, James Blunt, B.o.B., Gavin DeGraw, Ellie Goulding, Arianna Grande, Jennifer Hudson, Sebastian Ingrosso & Alesso, Leona Lewis, Maroon 5, Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood, U2 and more. As a producer, Tedder has sold more 130 million records worldwide and has held over 75 No. 1 chart positions across the globe. The seven-time Grammy nominee took home his first Grammy for Album of the Year award for his work on Adele's "21."

To date, Hendricks has produced a staggering 96 top 10 hits, with 58 of those hits going all the way to No. 1. In all, he's spent 97 weeks - over a year and a half - at the top of the chart. The stat that he is most proud of, however, is that he has taken 16 different artists to the top 10, and 10 of who have reached No. 1. 

"The Voice" is averaging a 4.1 rating, 12 share in adults 18-49 and 14.1 million viewers overall so far this season with its regular Monday and Tuesday editions, making it television's No. 1 unscripted series in adults 18-49 and most other key demographics. The eight Monday originals of the current cycle have ranked No. 1 for the night among "Big 4" entertainment programs in adults 18-49. The six Tuesday originals to date have also all finished No. 1 on the night among those networks.
