Ariana Grande is switching positions yet again, this time claiming a spot as the newest coach on NBC’s The Voice

The two-time Grammy-winning artist announced her new gig on Tuesday via social media, writing that she’ll appear on Season 21 of the singing competition. 

“Surprise!!! I am beyond thrilled, honored, excited to be joining @kellyclarkson @johnlegend @blakeshelton next season, season 21 of @nbcthevoice,” Ari wrote. “@nickjonas we will miss you.”

With one of the best—if not the best— voices in music appropriately joining the talented crew, The Voice fans will have to say goodbye to Nick Jonas, who returned to the show last year. 

When the news hit, John Legend—who collaborated with Grande on their 2017 remake of “Beauty and the Beast”—wrote that he was “so excited to welcome Ariana to our Voice family.”

Grande’s latest venture comes during an already exciting few months for Arianators, who celebrated the release of Grande’s latest chart-topping record, Positions, in October. 

Just this month, Grande earned her second Grammy, alongside Lady Gaga, for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for their No. 1 single “Rain on Me.” Ari also released her video for the “35 + 35” remix alongside Megan Thee Stallion and Doja Cat back in Feburary, and the track currently sits at No. 11 on the Billboard Hot 100 after peaking at No. 2 during its 21 weeks on the chart.
