The cat is finally out of the bag! Ariana Grande will be replacing Nick Jonas on season 21 of “The Voice.” The superstar singer revealed on social media that she would become the newest addition to the voice, joining current vocal coaches Blake Shelton, John Legend and Kelly Clarkson for the upcoming season.
“surprise !!! i am beyond thrilled, honored, excited to be joining @kellyclarkson @johnlegend @blakeshelton next season ~ season 21 of @nbcthevoice ! @nickjonas we will miss you,” said in her Instagram caption.
Although not seeing Nick Jonas on “The Voice” may be an adjustment for some fans, Ms. Grande stepping in is still welcomed by many.
“Ariana Grande announcing she is the new judge on the voice made me so f**kin excited I can’t wait,” one Twitter user said.
Even Ariana Grande herself is hyped about joining “The Voice,” being that she is a huge fan of the show herself.
“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,” Ariana Grande said in a statement. “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.”
Although Ariana Grande becoming a vocal coach on “The Voice” is a huge accomplishment for her—especially since she is the show’s youngest vocal coach ever—it’s one of many. A number one debut album, YouTube’s most-watched video in 24 hours, and the youngest headliner at Coachella is just a few Ariana Grande’s major achievements.
Ariana Grande has also broken a Guinness world record. According to USA Today Ariana Grande’s album “Positions” “earned the pop princess her 20th “Guinness Book of World Records” title in February for having the most songs to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. “
