Season 21 of NBC's The Voice returns tonight (Monday, September 20th) at 8 p.m. ET with veteran coaches Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkson and John Legend alongside new addition Ariana Grande.

Blake is excited to welcome some fresh blood to the show, especially one with who is such a superstar. He tells us: ["I'm always excited to work with somebody new, and she's incredibly talented and and a huge, I mean, obviously a huge star, and it's always more exciting for me. The bigger the star, the harder they fall, and it's always way more exciting to me to beat somebody of her level of popularity than it is just to be, you know, some loser like Kelly or John, you know."] SOUNDCUE (:29 OC: . . . John, you know.)

This season's Battle Advisors include two Country stars: Jason Aldean (Team Kelly) and Dierks Bentley (Team Blake), along with Kristin Chenoweth (Team Ariana) and Camila Cabello (Team Legend).
