Ariana Grande Joins ‘The Voice’ for Season 21
Grande replaced Nick Jonas, who spent two non-consecutive seasons in the coaching seat on “The Voice.” The “Positions” singer announced that she would be joining the cast in March 2021.
“surprise!!!” she wrote on Instagram next to a photo of her on the big red chair. “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 a report by E! Online, Grande and the other coaches shared banter and the interactions were sweet.
“Ariana was so fun and sweet,” a source told the outlet. “She was interacting with the fans so much and was having the cutest moments on and off camera with the coaches. She was so sweet to anyone who came up to her from the production team as well. Ariana and Kelly Clarkson were taking selfies. It was so cute.”
Another source told the outlet that Grande and Shelton were “so funny together.”
The coaches each previously said they were excited for Grande to join the cast.
During his interview on “The Kelly Clarkson Show,” Jonas warned Grande about one thing when it comes to coaching. When asked if he had any advice, he started out by saying no, but then he added some context.
“No,” he started. “I mean, Ariana – as we all know – is one of the best singers in the game and she’s gonna be an incredible coach.”
