A new coach is set to join the coach's panel on the 21st season of The Voice.

The 27-year-old pop star shared an Instagram photo on the set of the long-running music show on Tuesday, writing that she was "beyond excited" to join fellow coaches Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkson and John Legend.

Grande will replace Nick Jonas, who returned as a coach for Season 20 in March.

Newsweek has reached out to representatives for The Voice for further comment.

Jonas originally joined The Voice as a coach for the 18th season of the show, replacing Gwen Stefani. However, Stefani returned to her red swivel chair for Season 19 and won for the first time with artist Carter Rubin. However, Stefani was replaced by Jonas again in 2021.

Jonas has yet to reveal why he will not be rejoining the show next season. The Spaceman singer has not helped any artists win The Voice as of yet. However, there is a possibility one of the current members of his Season 20 team will be crowned champion by the end of the season.

As a coach, Grande will choose contestants to join her team during the Blind Auditions and will help them choose songs and develop their vocal skills as they face off against other members of the team throughout the Battle Rounds and The Knockouts. Artists who make it through each of those rounds will then compete against remaining contestants from other teams during the Live Shows.

Grammy-winning singer Grande joins a long line of artists who have helped guide singers and musicians through the competition over the years.

When the show debuted in 2011, the coach's panel featured artists including Adam Levine, CeeLo Green, Christina Aguilera and Shelton, who has not only remained on the show the longest but has the most wins—Shelton has led seven contestants to victory so far.

Green, who never actually won on the show, was first to leave The Voice after coaching artists for four seasons, followed by Aguilera who left after seven seasons of the show. During her tenure, Aguilera won Season 3 with singer Alisan Porter. As for Levine, who helped develop three The Voice champions, he remained on the series for 17 seasons before he announced his decision to leave in 2019.

Shakira coached on The Voice for Seasons 4 and 6 along with Usher, who also coached for two seasons and won once during Season 6 with singer Josh Kaufman. Despite his departure, the award-winning singer did return as a mentor for Season 8.

Pharell Williams had a four-season run on The Voice and even won with his artist Sawyer Fredericks during Season 8.

Miley Cyrus joined the show for Season 11 but took a hiatus the following season. She returned for her second and final stint as a coach during Season 13 but never managed to lead any artists to the winner's circle. Jennifer Hudson also coached artists on The Voice for Seasons 13 and 15. Although she left the U.S. franchise after her second season, she joined the coach's panel for The Voice U.K. in 2017 and became the first woman to ever win the international competition with artist Mo Adeniran.

Alicia Keys won with her artist Chris Blue when she made her coaching debut on Season 11. She appeared as a coach for the second time during Season 12 but took a break for Season 13 before returning to coach on Season 14.

Clarkson, who first found fame when she won the ABC singing competition American Idol in 2008, made her debut on The Voice during Season 14. The singer has remained on the show ever since and has won three times so far. Legend arrived as a coach during Season 16 won right off the bat with artist Maelyn Jarmon. He continues to help develop artists on the show.
