by Shelby Scott

As the latest season of NBC’s hit show, “The Voice,” premieres later tonight, popstar Kelly Clarkson shared a teaser video from her performance with none other than Ariana Grande. In true Kelly Clarkson style, her iconic vocals belt out mid-clip right before she and Grande take the stage.

In just hours, the pair’s performance of Aretha Franklin’s hit, “Respect” will air.

We hope that little teaser got you as amped up for tonight’s premiere as we are. The latest season hasn’t even kicked off and we are already feeling #TeamKelly.

Viewers to the clip shared similar sentiments.

“KELLY AND ARI 2024,” wrote one Kelly Clarkson follower. @nbcthevoice themselves commented, “Literal queen. 🥲” and we could not agree more.

As we count down the minutes until the premiere, numerous fans of Kelly’s shared their love for Team Kelly and their excitement for the newest season of “The Voice. “

Don’t Miss “The Voice” Season 21 Premiere

For those Outsiders as scatterbrained as I am, I wanted to provide you some quick reminders as to how you can catch tonight’s “The Voice” Season 21 premiere. Pay close attention.

The latest season of “The Voice,” as I stated before premieres tonight and fans can catch the initial airing on NBC. The premiere kicks off at 8 p.m. ET. Additionally, the full live episode is viewable on the network’s cable station, however, there are several other outlets available to fans with which to catch the hit show. NBC.com/live plans to air the live episode in addition to NBC‘s apps.

Those with Amazon Fire, Apple and Android devices, Xbox, AppleTV, Roku and more have access to download the network’s app.

Additionally, @nbcthevoice plans to share full-length performances across social media so be sure to check in there as well.

Season 21 of “The Voice” features the return of veteran show judges Kelly Clarkson, Blake Shelton, and John Legend. However, this year, we look forward to the addition of pop sensation Ariana Grande.

NBC Talent Show Host Requirements

With Ariana Grande as the latest addition to the panel of judges on “The Voice,” many may wonder how these stars have gotten the job in the first place. Overall, this year’s panel is diverse, with country star Blake Shelton, country-pop singer Kelly Clarkson, pop icon Ariana Grande, and R&B artist John Legend. In its entirety then, “The Voice” promises a broad collection of talent amid season 21.

Regardless, host Carson Daly revealed it takes more than stardom to secure a spot in one of the iconic spinning red chairs. He summarized that, “What makes the show good is the ribbing.” He pointed out moments where Blake Shelton and Ariana Grande poke fun at each other with the latter calling Shelton her grandpa. “As soon as there’s a comfort factor…that’s when we know we’re onto a good panel.”

Overall then, alongside the musical talent and exposure potential judges have received, much of the decision is based on individual’s chemistry with each other.

Hence and therefore, unless you’ve encountered music stardom, we’re not sure we would make the greatest judges on “The Voice.”
