The Voice gets a new Coach.
‘Happy when I’m Sad’ is coming full circle for fans of The Voice. Long-time judge Adam Levine announced back in Spring that he would be leaving the swiveling chairs donned with esteemed judges and coaches of the hit singing competition show (sad) to dedicate more time to his two little girls at home (less sad). The Voice is no stranger to new judges though, as Levine and Blake Shelton are the only two that have been on the show since its creation; production and chemistry between the judges is sure to remain just as entertaining and jovial as ever as none other than NICK JONAS takes Levine’s spot (happy).
In an interview with his brother band on The Ellen Degeneres Show, Nick confirmed the rumors that he would be taking the place of Levine. He said he’s most looking forward to helping craft and hone the talents of serious artists. Coming from a pop band background, Jonas and Levine have a lot in common in terms of their respective areas of expertise and are likely to show similarities in the singers they select for their teams and in their coaching. And let’s not forget the seasons-long ongoing friendly-feud between Levine and Shelton. Will Jonas fill in this empty bromance spot? Potential rivalry and friendly competition has already stirred up between the two. Ellen made a pre-announcement for Nick by playing a series of video clip messages from fellow judges, including Shelton, Kelly Clarkson, and John Legend, each of which offering him sage advice, invitations to a secret alliance, or notice that they he will not be the winner. All in good fun, right?
