NBC confirmed that Grammy and Golden Globe Award-nominated recording artist, actor, and songwriter Nick Jonas will be a coach on the new season of “The Voice.” Jonas will join fellow coaches Kelly Clarkson, John Legend, and Blake Shelton on the four-time Emmy Award winning musical competition series for the spring schedule. Jonas announced the news on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” while promoting Jonas Brothers’ platinum album and current single, “Only Human.”
“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, Alternative and Reality Group, NBC Entertainment. “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,” said 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.”
Nick Jonas rose to fame as one-third of the Jonas Brothers, who earned three consecutive No. 1 albums and sold-out shows across three continents. Earlier this year, the band announced their highly return to music with a new single, “Sucker,” which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot 100. The band captured No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with their now platinum-certified album, “Happiness Begins.”
Jonas’ self-titled album included the triple-platinum and No. 1 U.S. radio hit, “Jealous.” A recipient of the Songwriters Hall of Fame’s prestigious Hal David Starlight Award, Jonas co-wrote an original song titled “Home” for the animated film “Ferdinand.” The song was nominated for the 2018 Golden Globe in the category of Best Original Song. The actor starred in the 2016 Sundance Film Festival hit “Goat,” and appeared in a guest-starring role in the horror-comedy series “Scream Queens” and starred in the gritty television series “Kingdom.” In 2017, Jonas starred alongside Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, and Jack Black in the blockbuster film “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle,” Sony’s reimagining of the 1995 hit “Jumanji.” The film passed “Spider-Man” to become Sony’s highest-grossing film ever at the U.S. box office. The actor is also appearing in the Jumanji sequel, and Roland Emmerich’s “Midway.” Jonas also recently completed production on Lionsgate’s post-apocalyptic thriller “Chaos Walking,” which stars Daisy Ridley and Tom Holland and is scheduled for release in 2020.
