It looks like Ariana Grande can afford more than "7 rings," as OK! has exclusively learned she will be the highest-paid coach ever on The Voice.
The insider says that the show was willing to pay Clarkson — who joined the series in 2018 — such a hefty amount because she joined "at a time that American Idol was" coming back on air; therefore, "getting their first ever winner on The Voice was a huge get for NBC" at the time, the source continues.
“With John and Blake getting $13 million per season, it is the women on the show that will be making the most," the insider claims.
Insiders point out that Grande holds the record as the fourth-most career Hot 100 hits among women. She is also Spotify’s most-streamed female artist of the past decade and has 82 million Twitter followers — which is almost double the amount of followers her three fellow coaches have combined.
“I’m so honored and excited to join The Voice family!" Grande — who performed "Into You" as a guest on The Voice 2016 show finale — shared in a statement, adding that she's been a "huge fan of the show for such a long time."
Legend welcomed the new coach with open arms, taking to Twitter to share: “So excited to welcome Ariana to our Voice family!!”
The current season of The Voice airs on NBC. Grande's season will premiere September 20, 2021.
