Bye Adam, hello Nick

Nick Jonas will be replacing Maroon 5 front man Adam Levine on Season 18 of “The Voice.” Jonas made the announcement on Ellen DeGeneres’ show Monday.

“I am so excited about this,” Jonas said. “You’re basically the first people I’ve told, so thank you for being a part of this special moment for me.”

“The Voice” is a show that hunts for new musical talent from a diverse pool of contestants. Kelly Clarkson, John Legend, and country star Blake Shelton are on the show’s team of coaches. Gwen Stefani began filling in for Adam Levine after he left the show midway through the last season.

After Ellen DeGeneres helped Jonas break the news, Shelton joked that Jonas was too young for the show.

“I’m going to have to look through the rules because this is my TV show,” Shelton said in a video played on “The Ellen Show.” “I’m not even sure if you’re old enough to be a coach on ‘The Voice,’ but I’m certain that you’re going to get your butt kicked, buddy.”

Social media went wild after the announcement, with thousands of fans expressing their excitement about Jonas joining the lineup of coaches. Many female fans posted joke videos of themselves “trying out” for “The Voice,” in the hopes of getting closer to their celebrity crush.
