First-time The Voice coach Nick Jonas is in for one heck of a heckling if this unique preview from Season 18 is any indication. Within the video, returning coaches Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkson, and John Legend supply up some personalised recommendation to the most recent occupant of the massive pink chairs, and it appears like one coach specifically is perhaps out to undermine Jonas’s newbie’s luck this season.
“I assumed I might take a minute to offer you some recommendations on be an ideal coach right here on The Voice,” Shelton, the lone remaining coach from the sequence’ first season, says within the footage. “One, learn to do that,” he begins, pointing to the highest of his head — his signature transfer. “Two, I’ve heard a few of these pitches to those artists, and perhaps it is simply greatest so that you can introduce your self and cease speaking. ‘Trigger you ramble on and say a bunch of empty, empty issues. Three, strive to not lose, buddy. It is gonna be exhausting this primary yr.” That is not precisely the clearest vote of confidence, then, is it?
In fact, Clarkson places Shelton’s phrases into perspective. “It is my fifth season now, so I have been right here for a minute,” she tells Jonas. “I simply wish to warn you [about] a few issues. Blake lies. Like, lots. He’ll say and do something to get somebody on his staff.” That is removed from the primary time she’s made that declare about her fellow coach.
Jonas additionally will get recommendation from Legend, who’s now the second-newest coach, with two earlier seasons underneath his belt. “As the newest rookie, I’ve just a little recommendation for you… Once I started on The Voice, each single coach used their one block on me. They made only a horrible welcome for me,” Legend recollects. “So my recommendation to you is to be careful for the block.” Certainly, the block button is back in The Voice Season 18, and it sounds prefer it may need Nick Jonas’s identify on it already — so far as Blake Shelton is anxious, not less than.
For what it is value, Jonas does not appear too involved. “Thanks guys,” he responds. “That is very useful. However I believe I’ve bought this.” To be honest to him, he was a staff advisor for Christina Aguilera in Season 8, so he is not solely new to The Voice.
The Voice Season 18 premieres with a particular two-night occasion on Monday, Feb. 24 and Tuesday, Feb. 25 at 8/7c on NBC.
