Ariana Grande has confirmed that she's signed up to appear as a coach on The Voice US.
The 27-year-old pop star will offer advice to budding hopefuls alongside Kelly Clarkson, Blake Shelton and John Legend on the 21st season of the American singing competition.
Announcing the exciting career move on Instagram, the singer penned on Tuesday: "Surprise!!! I am beyond thrilled, honored, excited to be joining @kellyclarkson, @johnlegend and @blakeshelton next season – season 21 of @nbcthevoice. @nickjonas we will miss you."
Unsurprisingly, a majority of Ariana's 228 million followers rushed to leave a message for the star in the comment section.
One excited fan penned: "most definitely watching."
Another added: "yesssss!!!"
A third person posted: "OMGGGG IM SO EXCITED FOR THIS."

"This is amazing news," a fifth person posted on Instagram.

Ari's new co-workers have also welcomed her into the fold by sending her sweet messages online.
All of Me hitmaker John wrote to her: "So excited to welcome Ariana to our Voice family!!"
When season 21 of The Voice airs, Ariana will be taking over the chair from Nick, who joined as a coach in season 18 and returned again this season.
He was absent from season 19, as on-and-off coach and No Doubt singer Gwen Stefani took his place.
Ariana's latest announcement comes just days after she made Drag Race HERstory.
The Thank U, Next songstress has become the artist with the most lip-synced songs in Drag Race HERstory.
Pop Crave announced the news on Twitter, stating: “After last night’s episode of RuPaul’s #DragRace, Ariana Grande is now the artist with the most songs lip-synced to on the series with seven.”
Break Free, Greedy, Bang Bang, Into You, Problem, One Last Time, and No Tears Left To Cry have all been featured in lip-sync performances over the years.
