Wow, this is quite the pairing!
As for the country guy, he couldn’t be more thrilled to have the icon on his side, tweeting:
Well I was hoping to have a photo to go with this but here’s the deal. I want y’all to guess who my mentor for this season is. Go!!!

Ha! We’re loving the “wind beneath my wings” reference…
Shortly after the 40-year-old’s announcement, the celebrated singer also confirmed the news:
Well, it’s clear Ms. Midler is raring to go! Though it seems she incorrectly stated the premiere month as October instead of September — we guess excitement got the best of her!
The entertainer will also join fellow mentors Joan Jett, Sammy Hagar, and Charlie Puth.
You can watch Blake and Bette combine forces September 19 on NBC.
