Ariana Grande will join The Voice this fall, and needless to say, hopeful singers are starstruck! In a new 15 second promo, a female auditioner gushes “I’m obsessed with you!” Fellow coach John Legend notes, “She even came with a ponytail!” Which she did. At the end of the clip Blake Shelton brags “Did you happen to see how last season ends? I won!” Ariana shoots back, “That’s why I’m here.” The promo ends with Ariana standing in front of Blake, dropping her mic. I bet you didn’t see that coming!
The pop star joins Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkson and John Legend on the coaches panel when The Voice returns to NBC for it’s 21st season on Monday September 20.
Ariana has been expressing her excitement on Instagram. “Hello and screaming !!!! cannot wait for everyone to see our first promo tomorrow for season 21 of @nbcthevoice !!!” Arianna added, “it’s ….. the most ridiculous and fun. i adore these humans so much and am already an emotional wreck worrying about saying goodbye to everyone the day of the finale and nothings even happened or aired yet.”

The Voice Blind Auditions filmed in June
The Voice Blind Auditions were filmed in June in front of a live studio audience and reports from the set say Ariana fit right in.
“Ariana was so fun and sweet,” one eyewitness shared with E News. “She was interacting with the fans so much and was having the cutest moments on and off camera with the coaches. She was so sweet to anyone who came up to her from the production team, as well. Ariana and Kelly Clarkson were talking selfies. It was so cute.”
Ariana arrives at The Voice as two-time coach Nick Jonas departs, at least for now. In other big The Voice news, NBC announced last spring that The Voice is cutting back to one cycle a year. Instead, the American Song Contest will premiere spring 2022, which is based on the famed and long-running European Song Contest.
