Nick Jonas is returning to NBC’s The Voice and he’s coming back with a vengeance.
In a new teaser clip shared by the popular singing competition show, Jonas shared that his strategy this season is to “make sure I come with a fire in my eyes that really scares each and every one of these coaches.” Coach Kelly Clarkson quickly replied “I am scared.”
He was seen teasing the other coaches walking around backstage on set asking Clarkson, Blake Shelton and John Legend how they’re feeling ahead of the March 1 season premiere, only to completely cut them off once they started talking.
Not only is Jonas ready to scare his fellow coaches but he also says that he is “trying to really think of new and innovative ways to take on that kind of mental aspect of this game and i’ve got some tricks up my sleeve, that’s all I’ll say.”
The “Close” singer has also been working on some new vocal warm ups that include him shouting out “shut up Blake” and “Blake stop talking” and he says that the exercises “just really open up the lower part of my register.”
Jonas then labeled Shelton a “bully,” saying “I thought they were going to play nice, turns out Blake is a bully.”
“Blake is a bully, you don’t want to be on a bully’s team,” Clarkson added.
“What are you talking about?” Shelton asked. Jonas replied, “what do you think i’m talking about.”
Additionally, the coach shared that he is working on protecting his ears, as Clarkson can be very loud at times.
“Working on just my ear protection from Kelly, she can be very loud,” Jonas said as a clip of Clarkson screaming played. “So, I just have to know when to cover my ears, these are precious to me and I wouldn’t want them to not be there anymore because of the screaming.”
Jonas concluded the teaser clip saying, “John, I’m coming for you. Blake, buddy, you know I love you, but also, I’m coming for you. Kelly, I’ve missed you, but I’m also excited to crush you. So get ready, Season 20, The Voice.”
