Nick Jonas just gave his hit song a total makeover!
The pop music sensation, and newest member of The Voice family, recently teamed up with current coaches Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkson and John Legend, turning his 2014 smash “Jealous” into an all-star collaboration.
This clip, set to air during NBC’s The Voice Season 18 premiere, features Jonas singing the single solo while dressed in a black leather bomber jacket and jeans. Midway through the first verse, he is joined by Legend, who showcases his soulful vocals on the sultry lyrics. Shelton and Clarkson then trade lines on the chorus before all four artists sing together in unison, making the tune the ultimate sing-along!
Jonas, who makes up one-third of the Jonas Brothers, announced plans to join the cast of The Voice last October. He’ll be taking over for Gwen Stefani, who occupied Adam Levine’s red chair following his exit from the show. Jonas’ entry into the hit competition series isn’t new, though. He previously took on a role as a mentor alongside former coach Christina Aguilera.
The star-studded “Jealous” collaboration is the latest addition to a laundry list of performances from The Voice judges. Through the years, the panel has shared their renditions on songs like Extreme’s “More Than Words,” Joan Jett’s “I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll,” Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah,” TLC’s “Waterfalls,” and more.
Collaborations aside, Jonas will certainly be going up against some stiff competition when it comes to his fellow coaches. Shelton has won six times since the show’s inception. Meanwhile, Clarkson has taken the champion title three times with Legend marking his first win during the Season 16 finale.
The new season of NBC’s The Voice kicks off Monday (Feb. 24) at 8:00 p.m. ET.
