The 20th season of NBC's The Voice is still underway with battle rounds just starting, but that doesn't mean the network isn't getting fully prepared for the next season, airing this fall. Grammy winner Ariana Grande has officially signed on and will be replacing Nick Jonas in the upcoming season. The pop star will be joining Blake Shelton, John Legend, and Kelly Clarkson as the singing competition's latest new coach. We can't wait to see if she has the sass to deal with Shelton and Legend while fighting over contestants during the blind auditions.
Grande shared her exciting news on social media, making sure to pay respect to the fact that she will be filling Nick Jonas's big red chair.
"surprise !!! i am beyond thrilled, honored, excited to be joining @kellyclarkson @johnlegend @blakeshelton next season ~ season 21 of @nbcthevoice ! 🤍 @nickjonas we will miss you"
According to Billboard, Grande also shared a statement about her upcoming gig via NBC.
"I'm so honored and excited to join The Voice family! I have been a huge fan of the show for such a long time. I can't wait to go head-to-head with the incredible coaches, get to know these new artists and help to take their craft to the next level."
The 27-year old superstar is the latest of The Voice's younger coaches to join the show. Similar to Jonas or Miley Cyrus, they all have special expertise to offer to some of the young contestants which seems to be trending season after season. They all got their big start when they were children so they know what it's like to navigate fame and pursue a career at a young age. Most recently, Gwen Stefani had the youngest winner of The Voice on her team in season 19 -- 15-year-old Carter Rubin.
Regardless, we're looking forward to watching Grande in the upcoming season and can't wait to see what she brings to the popular show!
