*Warning: Spoilers ahead*
Ladies and gentlemen, Nick Jonas is officially getting settled as a coach on The Voice. But not without some good old fashion teasing from the other coaches, of course.
Last night, season 18 of the hit show premiered on NBC and the youngest Jonas brother definitely made an entrance (via paragliding) and even scored some seriously impressive talent for his team. However, right off the bat, the 27-year-old got his first taste of what Blake Shelton calls “newbie treatment.”
The first example was when artist Nelson Cade III impressed judges with a performance of Stevie Ray Vaughan's “Pride and Joy.” Jonas and fellow judges Shelton, John Legend and Kelly Clarkson all turned their chairs. Unfortunately for the Jonas brother, he was instantly blocked.
“How dare you,” Jonas said to Legend before turning to Cade. “I’m jealous that they get to fight for you.”
And that wasn’t the only incident. Later in the episode, the “Jealous” singer landed his first team member with 16-year-old Tate Brusa. Shelton definitely brought out the big guns in an attempt to sway Brusa: man's best friend. Yup, the country star brought out an actual puppy, but his ploy was ultimately unsuccessful.
The all-in-good-fun hazing didn’t deter Jonas. He even stole four-chair-turn Joanna Serenko out from under Legend, even after everyone was sure she was going to select the “All of Me” singer as her coach.
Way to go, Nick. We can’t wait to see what the rest of the season has in store for you.
The Blind Auditions of The Voice continue tonight at 8 p.m., on NBC.
