There’s a new singing coach in town. In the latest promo for season 21 of NBC’s The Voice, fans got a first glimpse of Grammy winner Ariana Grande alongside her soon-to-be fellow co-coaches John Legend, Kelly Clarkson and Blake Shelton. (Will this be the best season yet? We think so.)
In the campfire-themed clip, Shelton clutches a guitar and shouts, “Look at that amazing star over there!” as a silver-clad Grande walks into the frame. The star is then coaxed into singing a song — a right of passage for new Voice coaches. Grande promptly belts out “Hopelessly Devoted to You” — the iconic Olivia Newton-John solo from Grease. Host Carson Daly even makes a brief cameo as a park ranger.
It was first announced that Grande, 28, would be joining the competition series back in March, replacing departing coach Nick Jonas. “I’m so honored and excited to join The Voice family!” the “Thank U Next” singer said in a press release at the time. “I have been a huge fan of the show for such a long time. 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.”
It’s already been a big year for the star. Earlier this summer Grande shocked fans by revealing she’d privately gotten hitched to real estate agent beau Dalton Gomez, 25, during an intimate ceremony of only 20 people in California.
