Ariana Grande announced some big news on her Instagram Tuesday morning. The pop star will be joining The Voice as a coach for the upcoming Season 21.

Ariana posted a photo of herself on Instagram posing on the set of The Voice. She leans against one of the coach’s chairs while wearing a leopard-print dress and matching shoes.

The singer said she would be joining fellow coaches Kelly Clarkson, John Legend, and Blake Shelton. That means coach Nick Jonas won’t be returning to the show next season. However, he’s taken a season off in the past, so maybe we’ll see him again.

What Do Fans Think Of The News?

“I’m so honored and excited to join ‘The Voice’ family! I have been a huge fan of the show for such a long time,” Ariana said in a statement, according to Variety. “I can’t wait to go head-to-head with the incredible coaches, get to know these new artists and help to take their craft to the next level.”
