The first blind audition of the night, from Todd Tilghman, turned all four coaches’ chairs. During their pitches for Todd to join their teams, Nick and Kelly Clarkson got on the subject of ages.
Nick Jonas Addresses Wife’s Age On ‘The Voice’
Todd shared that he’s a pastor who sings in church. That prompted Nick to share that he’s a pastor’s kid, and to mention his love of Christian group Phillips, Craig and Dean. He proceeded to sing a few lines of one of their songs.
“I love that you pulled out Phillips, Craig and Dean,” Kelly said. When Todd pointed out that it’s “old-school,” she added to Nick, “I know, but I’m a decade older than you.”
Nick responded, “Not a decade,” to which Kelly pointed out, “I’m 37. Aren’t you 27?” Nick had to admit that yes, that was a decade. But he followed it up by saying, “My wife’s 37. It’s cool.”
The audience cheered for that declaration, and Kelly approvingly exclaimed, “Yes, Nick!”
Nick’s Wife Priyanka Is 10 Years Older Than Him
Nick married his wife, actress Priyanka Chopra, in December 2018. The 10-year age gap between them has certainly been the subject of conversation in recent years. Priyanka has spoken out about the issue, saying it demonstrates a double standard.
“I find it really amazing when you flip it and the guy is older, no one cares and actually people like it,” Priyanka told InStyle in 2019.
Priyanka obviously doesn’t see a problem with it, and neither does Nick, based on how open he was about it on Monday’s episode. And Kelly Clarkson clearly approves. We can’t wait to see if Priyanka makes a cameo on the show this season.
