There’s gonna be a new coach in one of the big red chairs on “The Voice” next spring.
Nick Jonas is joining the show as a judge for its 18th season in 2020, taking over the chair currently occupied by Gwen Stefani. He’ll be joined by returning coaches Kelly Clarkson, John Legend and Blake Shelton.
The new role follows on Jonas’ appearance on NBC’s songwriting competition show “Songland” earlier this summer.
“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 NBC’s alternative and reality group. “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.”
“I’m so excited to be a part of ‘The Voice’ family,” added 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.”
Season 17 of “The Voice” premiered last month, and is currently airing on Monday and Tuesday nights on NBC. It is produced by MGM Television, Talpa Media USA Inc. and Warner Horizon Unscripted Television. Executive producers are creator John de Mol, Mark Burnett, Audrey Morrissey, Amanda Zucker and Kyra Thompson.
