Ariana Grande Joining 'The Voice' as Season 21 Coach

The Voice is changing up “positions” in season 21, and welcoming a new coach to the panel: Ariana Grande!

The 27-year-old singer announced on Tuesday that she will be joining the NBC singing competition next season, taking Nick Jonas’ place alongside fellow coaches Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkson and John Legend.

“Surprise!!! I am beyond thrilled, honored, excited to be joining @kellyclarkson @johnlegend @blakeshelton next season ~ season 21 of @nbcthevoice !” Grande shared on Instagram, posting a pic from The Voice set on her very own spinning chair (where it looks like she’ll be seated between John and Kelly). “@nickjonas we will miss you.”

Season 21 will mark Blake, Kelly and John’s sixth season of The Voice together, while the fourth coach’s chair has rotated in recent seasons between Nick and Gwen Stefani. Ahead of season 19 last year, Kelly told ET how excited she was to have Gwen back and how much she enjoys coaching alongside another female performer.

“I love having another female [on the panel],” she shared. “I’ve done it with all the guys, and it’s cool…but I like having the female energy to kind of bounce off of. I’m a girls’ girl. I have a lot of girlfriends, so I’m welcoming of that.”
