Nick Jonas is not far behind his ladylove Priyanka Chopra. Making waves in Hollywood once again, he has now been roped in as a coach for The Voice’s upcoming 18th season. He joins famous coaches Kelly Clarkson, John Legend and Blake Shelton as well as host Carson Daly on the music competition series. “I’m so excited to be a part of The Voice family,” said Jonas. “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,” he added. The singer was elated to break the news on his Instagram handle.
Posting a picture caught in a candid moment, Nick captioned it, “Me thinking about joining @kellyclarkson, @johnlegend, and @blakeshelton on season 18 of @nbcthevoice. So excited to finally get to share this with you all.” Jonas performs with his brothers Kevin and Joe as The Jonas Brothers in addition to performing as a solo artist. Earlier this year, the band announced their return to music with a new single, Sucker, which debuted at number one on Billboard’s Hot 100.
“As a member of one of the hottest pop groups, Nick’s success in navigating all aspects of the music industry is exceptional,” said Meredith Ahr, president of alternative and reality Group, NBC Entertainment. “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. We are excited to see Nick lend his mentorship, relatability and breadth of knowledge to a new crop of artists.” The Voice is produced by MGM Television, Talpa Media USA Inc. and Warner Horizon Unscripted Television. The series was created by John de Mol, who also executively produces the show with Mark Burnett, Audrey Morrissey, Amanda Zucker and Kyra Thompson.
