To celebrate the upcoming return of NBC’s The Voice, and welcome Ariana Grande as a new coach, the hit show released a new promo for the upcoming season. 

In the clip, returning coaches Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkson and John Legend are seen sitting around a campfire in the woods. They look to the sky and see Grande seated on a giant moon. The Pop singer then joins them around the fire as they ask her to perform a song 

“The new coach has to sing us a little song around the campfire,” Legend tells Grande as she initially pushes back. 

 “Oh my God, that’s so awkward, I couldn’t possibly,” she says before belting out “Hopelessly Devoted to You” by Olivia Newton-John.

Her impromptu performance attracts forest animals from far and wide and Shelton proclaims, “This is gonna be an amazing season.”  

Shelton is the only coach to appear on all 21 seasons of The Voice. The country superstar recently secured his eighth overall win on the competition when Cam Anthony took home the top prize at the conclusion of Season 20 in May. 

Shelton previously won The Voice with Team Blake members Jermaine Paul (Season 2), Cassadee Pope (Season 3), Danielle Bradbery (Season 4), Craig Wayne Boyd (Season 7), Sundance Head (Season 11) Chloe Kohanski (Season 13) and Todd Tilghman (Season 18).

Grande will be appearing on the show for the first time as a coach. The hit show announced that the two-time GRAMMY winner would be joining the cast last March. 

Grande, who is replacing Nick Jonas on the upcoming season, appeared on The Voice previously as a guest performer but has never taken part of the show as a coach. 

Fans can tune in to The Voice on Monday and Tuesdays this fall beginning September 20
