The pop superstar, 27, will join the NBC show’s next season, Season 21, alongside regular trainers Blake Shelton, John Legend and Kelly Clarkson.
A source told Page Six, “Ariana has been a huge fan of The Voice and her management team has been negotiating to get her on the show for some time.
“She replaces Nick Jonas, who is a [coach] on the current season, but he’s not going away for good. Nick will remain in rotation with other stars who have appeared on the series. There’s a good chance he’ll be back soon.
A winner of multiple Grammy Awards, Grande has appeared on “The Voice” in the past, performing her hit “Into You” in the final in 2016, but did not participate as a coach.

Grande said, “I am very honored and delighted to join the ‘The Voice’ family! I’ve been a huge fan of the show for so long.
“I can’t wait to come face to face with the amazing coaches, get to know these new artists and help them take their profession to the next level.”Grande also shared her enthusiasm on social media, writing: “surprise !!!
