Jonas Revealed How He Trained for ‘The Voice’ Season 20
Jonas returns to The Voice for the monumental season 20, and he revealed in a new promotion how, exactly, he’s been training for the new season with hopes of beating the longest-tenured coach Blake Shelton.
The promotion started out with host Carson Daly introducing the four coaches, Kelly Clarkson, John Legend, Blake Shelton and returning coach Nick Jonas. Daly asks Jonas what he’s been doing to prepare for the new season, and he replied in a way that made it clear he came back only to beat Shelton.
“Make sure I come with a fire in my eyes that really scares each and every one of these coaches,” Jonas said at first.
In the promo, Jonas shares that he’ll take “any chance [he] can just to criticize” the other coaches.
“John, I’m coming for you,” Jonas says. “Blake, buddy, you know I love you. But also, I’m coming for you. Kelly, I’ve missed you, but I also am excited to crush you. So get ready. Season 20 of The Voice.”
The promotion went through categories of Jonas’s training, starting with how he trained his body for a return to the big red chair.
“I’ve been doing a lot of this exercise in the gym,” Jonas says while putting his hand up and down like he would be hitting the button. “I don’t know what you call that. It’s a shoulder raise, but only to about eight inches and back down just to make sure that I’m physically prepared as well as mentally prepared for pushing that button.”
