The Voice is currently airing its seventeenth season, and NBC now has the panel for season 18 set. Fans will see a new face join Kelly Clarkson, John Legend and Blake Shelton this spring. Nick Jonas is taking the fourth chair as a coach for the upcoming season.
It appears Nick will fit right in with Blake, John, and Kelly too. The three current judges sent Nick a video to welcome him to The Voice. The clip aired during Nick’s appearance on The Ellen Degeneres Show on Monday. One of the judges also gives him a bit of a scare during the interview.
“I’m so excited to be a part of The Voice family. It’s such an awesome group of individuals, and I can’t wait to help these artists really build and hone in to find their unique voices.”
The powers that be at NBC also shared their thoughts about Nick’s addition. Meredith Ahr, president of Alternative and Reality Group at NBC Entertainment, said the following:
“As a member of one of the hottest pop groups, Nick’s success in navigating all aspects of the music industry is exceptional. We were so impressed by his innate musicality, technical aptitude and passion that he brought to Songland earlier this year and know he will be an incredible fit as a coach on The Voice.”
The Voice will air season 18 this spring.
