Nick Jonas is the new one item coach this season, so it’s not surprising that he touched his brothers to lead his team. The three Jonas Brothers will play in a Las Vegas residence this spring, so they will spend a lot of time together between this and their time as mentors for Nick’s team members.

These two guys are some of the most trusted people in my life. It’s Hall & Oates. I’m kidding, it’s Kevin and Joe Jonas! “Nick said, adding:” These guys are my brothers, my bandmates, my best friends. And they’ll help me take Team Nick to the next level. “

“I am so honored to have been chosen … for the five seasons she has been here, she has won three times, so I don’t think she needed my help,” said Lipa. “But for me, I’m so grateful to learn a completely new dimension, that’s something I had never done before.”

It’s fun and it’s a little crazy, so it was fun.” Rexha told Billboard on the Grammys red carpet, adding that he met his fiancée Gwen Stefani, which was “fantastic” because Rexha is a huge Stefani fan.
