Nick Jonas joins ‘The Voice’ as season 18 coach

Singer-songwriter Nick Jonas is all set to join season 18 of the NBC singing competition ‘The Voice’. Jonas is slated to join returning coaches Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkson and John Legend. Shelton’s girlfriend Gwen Stefani, who returned as a coach for the fall cycle, will not be returning in the spring.

“I’m so excited to be a part of ‘The Voice’ family,” Jonas said in a statement from the network. “It’s such an awesome group of individuals, and I can’t wait to help these artists really build and hone in to find their unique voices.”

Then turning his attention to his new co-workers — and competition — Jonas said, “While I’m excited to work with you guys, I’m coming for you! I’m hoping for a Season 1 win for Team Nick and the chance to work with some amazing talent. I can’t wait and I just want to say thank you to everyone that made it happen.”

Back in June, Jonas appeared as a musical guest, alongside his brothers, on NBC’s songwriting reality competition series “Songland.” The song they ultimately chose, Able Heart’s “Greenlight,” quickly went to the top of the iTunes charts. So Nick has some familiarity with both the network and musical reality shows on it.

Now, he’s looking to show off his eye for talent and mentoring in his new role as the latest coach on the network’s highest-rated reality show, “The Voice.”

Hyderabad: Renowned Telugu actor Chiranjeevi presented the Akkineni Nageswara Rao (ANR) National Award to veteran actors Sridevi and Rekha at an event held at Annapurna Seven acres on Sunday. Instituted by the Akkineni International Foundation, the award will be presented annually to the celebrities to honour their decades of contribution to Indian cinema.

It was a trip down the memory lane for all present — filmmaker Boney Kapoor, who received the award of behalf of his late wife; Chiranjeevi, who was the chief guest at the function and Nagarjuna in whose father’s name the award has been instituted.

In her acceptance speech, Rekha recalled her association with ANR and said she considered this honour from the Telugu film industry as a homecoming. “Annapurna Studios is like my home production and it feels glad to have received this honour alongside Sridevi, who is my little sister and an actor par excellence. I did a Telugu film titled Amma Kosam for my mother and now, I’m here to thank my another mother, Annapurna Studios.”

Bollywood producer Boney Kapoor broke into tears after accepting Akkineni Nageswara Rao (ANR) National Award on behalf of his late wife and English Vinglish actor Sridevi.

“I’m sure she (Sridevi) would have felt humbled to receive this award and I accept this on her behalf with humility,” he said at an event held at Annapurna Seven Acres here on Sunday.

ANR Awards Committee chairman and industrialist T. Subbarami Reddy, actor Akkineni Nagarjuna, his wife Amala, and several prominent members of the film industry graced the occasion.
