The US-based version of the singing contest is well underway, and it won’t be long before the next season hits our screeens.
It has recently been confirmed that Nick Jonas won’t be joining fellow judges Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkson and John Legend for the 21st series.
Instead, Ariana Grande is stepping in to replace him. So, what is the singer and new judge’s salary expected to be?
Why is Nick Jonas leaving The Voice?
- At the time of writing, Nick has not revealed why he is leaving
The judge previously exited the show in summer 2020, with singer Gwen Stefani later taking his seat on the judging panel.
He then returned, following several fan’s wishes for him to make a comeback. And now, Nick is leaving again after season 20.
Some reports state that Nick’s departure is possibly linked to Gwen, as she has left and returned to the singing contest’s panel several times.

- It is likely to be at least $14 million
This is considering Ariana has a net worth of $150 million, and that the highest paid salary is $14 million on The Voice.
However, it has not been confirmed how much the singer will actually be making on the judging panel next season.
She has a higher net worth than each of the judges, so it is possible that she could receive a much more significant pay packet.
Here’s how much the other judges make per season:
- Kelly Clarkson – $14 million
- Blake Shelton – at least $13 million
- John Legend – between $13-14 million
- Nick Jonas – Around $10 million
