Big news for The Voice fans: Nick Jonas is joining as a coach for season 18!

That’s right, the NBC show already announced who will be signing on for the spring 2020 round, and the Jonas Brothers singer has officially been tapped as the latest pro to sit in a big red chair.

The update was revealed during the season 17 Blind Auditions, which are already showcasing major talent from contestants like 14-year-old Preston C. Howell and Katie Kadan. Nick shared a video explaining the latest addition to his resume, and made it clear that he’s ready to take on Kelly Clarkson, John Legend, and Blake Shelton.

“While I’m excited to work with you guys, I’m coming for you,” he said. “It’s going to be a fun time.”

Kelly, John, and Blake are more than ready to welcome their next celeb co-worker, though for Blake that sadly means he’ll have to say goodbye to his girlfriend, Gwen Stefani, who’s serving as Adam Levine’s replacement this fall.

But despite the personal loss for Blake, he still seems in good spirits about Nick, and has already started teasing him in typical Blake manner.

“I’m going to have to look through the rules, because this is my TV show,” Blake said in a recording congratulating Nick. “I’m not sure that you’re even old enough to be a coach on The Voice.” To which Nick retorted on The Ellen DeGeneres Show that he’s been in the biz for nearly 20 years, thank you very much.

Kelly and John took another route, and used their air time to try and convince Nick to join forces with them.

“I do definitely feel like the two Texans should maybe team up and form an alliance,” Kelly said. John added, “Our mission is to destroy Blake Shelton. We’ll have to form an alliance, me, you, Kelly, we team up. We beat Blake, nothing else matters.”

Good luck to Nick!
