The "7 Rings" crooner gushed how "thrilled, honored [and] excited" she was to be joining Kelly Clarkson, Blake Shelton and John Legend on the 21st season of the show.

"I have been a huge fan of the show for such a long time," she shared. "I can’t wait to go head-to-head with the incredible coaches, get to know these new artists and help to take their craft to the next level."

The star will be taking over the spot currently held by Nick Jonas. She sent the Jonas Brothers singer a sweet send-off, writing, "we will miss you." Luckily, there were no hard feelings between Grande and the "Spaceman" singer.

"Congrats @ArianaGrande! You’re going to kill it next season!" he tweeted. "Welcome to the family."

Despite the switch-up, an insider told Page Six that Jonas' absence won't be permanent.

"Ariana is a huge fan of The Voice and her management team has been negotiating to get her on the show for a while," claimed the insider. "She is replacing Nick Jonas, who is a [coach] on the current season, but he isn’t leaving for good."

"Nick will remain on rotation with other stars that have appeared on the show. The chances are he will be back soon," they added.

Until then, Grande will happily keep his seat warm — and she's scoring big in the process.

"Ariana is getting in the $20 to $25 million range to join the show," a source spilled to OK!, noting her salary will be the highest in the show's history.

According to the source, Clarkson scored an $18 million contract for the show, while Legend and Shelton reportedly earn $13 million per season.

Shelton is the longest-running star of the NBC series, having been a coach since season 1, which debuted in 2011. Since then, celeb coaches have included Alicia Keys, Adam Levine, Usher, Gwen Stefani and Christina Aguilera.

Grande's season is scheduled to premiere on September 21.
