New "Voice" Coach Nick Jonas Had The Best Response To Blake Shelton Dragging Him Over His Age

This season sure is going to be interesting.

After teasing his followers, Nick Jonas is finally ready to make his big announcement.

Big news coming... 😎✌🏼

OK, with some help: When the Jonas Brothers appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the host forced Nick into sharing that he's joining The Voice as a coach.

I got @NickJonas’ big news right here.

"I said I was going to make the announcement tomorrow. ... I have a whole plan for tomorrow," he told Ellen when she put him on the spot, to which she replied: "I'm going to ruin it, then."

Turns out, Ellen had Nick's new coworkers individually greet him in a series of videos she played for the musician β€” and that's when things got interesting.


Even though Nick just joined The Voice as a new coach, he already has an enemy on the set: Blake Shelton. In Blake's message to Nick, the country singer dragged Nick over his age.


"Nick Jonas! How you doin', buddy?" Blake said. "I heard you're going to be a new coach on The Voice, and I wanted to first of all say congratulations, I guess, but second of all, voice some concerns that I have. I have to look through the rules because this is my TV show. I'm not sure that you're even old enough to be a coach on The Voice, but I'm certain that you're going to get your butt kicked, buddy."

But Nick has a plan.

Big news is here... 😎✌🏼 #NickJonasJoinsTheVoice

He's got Kelly Clarkson on his side.


"Hey, what's up, Nick? Kelly here," she said. "I just wanted to say congratulations. I do definitely feel like the two Texans should maybe team up and form an alliance. I'm just saying."

Plus, John Legend is also down to form an alliance.


"Nick Jonas! It's John Legend, your new coworker," John said. "Welcome to The Voice. I just have to tell you one thing: 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, OK? Deal? I'll see you soon."

Nick didn't let Blake's threat go, either.

After he watched the videos from Blake, Kelly, and John, he told the Ellen audience, "Well, the cat's out of the bag. I am so excited about this. I will be joining as one of the new coaches of The Voice. ... Just to be clear, Blake, I'm going to kick your ass β€” and I think Kelly's point about joining an alliance might make sense. John, I love you, but we got to have a side conversation."

And he definitely had the last word: "As weird as it is, Blake, that I'm so young, it's exciting to now have a nearly 20-year career."
