It looks like Nick Jonas won't be joining coaches Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkson, and John Legend on The Voice next season.

On Tuesday, Grammy-winning singer Ariana Grande revealed on Twitter that she will be taking Nick's place among the panelists for the 2021 fall installment of the NBC hit show. This will be Ariana's first time coaching, though she appeared on The Voice's 2016 finale.

"surprise !!! i am beyond thrilled, honored, excited to be joining @kellyclarkson @johnlegend @blakeshelton next season ~ season 21 of @nbcthevoice ! @nickjonas we will miss you," the artist tweeted. Shortly after Ariana published her message, The Voice Twitter account retweeted the announcement.

Within minutes, John took to social media to weigh in on the big news. "So excited to welcome Ariana to our Voice family!!" the "Bigger Love" singer wrote in support.

About 15 minutes after that, Nick himself jumped on Twitter to send the "Thank U, Next" vocalist well wishes. "Congrats @ArianaGrande! You’re going to kill it next season! Welcome to the family 😎," he said.

Though Nick appears to be handling the news well, some of his fans seem a bit more upset to hear that he's walking away from the show yet again. Just this past spring, Nick rejoined The Voice as a coach after exiting ahead of season 19 and giving up his red swivel chair to Gwen Stefani. Now, it looks like he's content on saying goodbye to the competition show a second time, though he has not offered up a reason for his departure this year.

Meanwhile, a source told Page Six that there's a good chance Nick won't be going away for good. "Nick will remain on rotation with other stars that have appeared on the show. The chances are he will be back soon," the source claimed.

In the meantime, we're just going to keep on rooting for Nick and hoping he'll leave the show on a high note and with his very first coaching victory.
