Fresh off of his conscious uncoupling with Gwyneth Paltrow, Chris Martin joins NBC's The Voice for the second half of the battle rounds next week.

The Coldplay singer and mentor's simplest advice for the aspiring stars?

Whenever you're in doubt, channel your inner Mick Jagger up there.

The competition is about to get real on all four teams, and sometimes the littlest changes can make the all the differences when you're battling the best.

Martin will advise each of the singers on vocal technique, stage presence and the importance of tailoring songs to their own strengths and personality.

Following the shocking Gwyneth Paltrow-Chris Martin split, he joins fellow Voice Season 6 mentors Jill Scott, The Band Perry, Aloe Blacc and Miranda Lambert.

The Voice used to feature the Knockout Round at this point in the competition, but now The Battles: Round 2 will take its place due to the duets' intense popularity.

After the coaches pick the Top 12 from the battles, we go live April 21, with the contestants competing for viewer votes, along with the Twitter Instant Save.

Excited to see Martin on the show? How are you liking Season 6?

Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin, who shocked fans with their separation last night, say they are just consciously uncoupling ... whatever that means.

In a statement on Paltrow's website Goop (which crashed due to the onslaught of traffic), they jointly announced plans to "consciously uncouple."

"In many ways we are closer than we have ever been," they say, but have concluded that "while we love each other very much we will remain separate."

It all sounds very amiable ... but what is conscious uncoupling?

While Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin are very free-spirited, it's difficult to take this statement seriously. You're divorcing. Stop trying to sugar coat it.

Paltrow shared a 2,000-word article by Dr. Habib Sadeghi and Dr. Sherry Sami that spells out what they're doing with their oh-so enlightened lives.

Chris Martin of Coldplay fame doesn't see anything wrong with Nicole Kidman naming her daughter Sunday or Jessica Alba calling her girl Honor.

The 31-year-old rocker - who named his son Moses and daughter Apple - tackles the subject in the new issue of Blender:

Sandra and Louis

"People make a big fuss over names. Names of babies, names of albums, names of bands. There's nothing weird about calling your baby Chewbacca if that's what you want to call your child. It's no stranger than Sarah. A name is just a noise, and if you like it, then f--k what everyone else says."

With all due respect, Chris, you're an idiot! While we get your point, we're pretty sure that l'il Chewbacca Martin would find his (her?) name a little different than Sarah Martin once the fellow second graders got wind of it. No?

We applaud Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves for choosing a name that's a bit different, yet not completely absurd. More on that later!
