The Voice season 21 will feature Ariana Grande as a coach. Find out how much money Ariana will be making from her salary on the show.
To join The Voice season 21, Ariana Grande has struck a deal that will make her the highest-paid coach in the history of the show. At just 27 years old, Ariana Grande has already become one of the most successful popstars on the planet. She has released six studio albums in less than 10 years: 2013’s Yours Truly, 2014’s My Everything, 2016’s Dangerous Woman, 2018’s Sweetener, 2019’s thank u, next, and 2020’s Positions. Between those projects, Ariana Grande has gone on to have five #1 songs on the Billboard Hot 100 chart: “Stuck With U” (with Justin Bieber), “Thank U, Next”, “7 Rings”, “Rain On Me” (with Lady Gaga), and “Positions”.

Prior to being announced as a new coach on The Voice in 2021, Ariana Grande became the most-streamed female artist on the Spotify and Apple Music streaming services. Between all of her studio albums, singles, and collaborations, Ariana was certified to have sold over 85 million units in the United States alone. Critically, Ariana Grande has won two Grammy Awards and nine MTV Video Music Awards. She has also broken a whopping 22 Guinness World Records. With such an impressive resume at her very young age, Ariana was the perfect choice for NBC to bring along as a coach on The Voice.
Here’s what we know about Ariana Grande’s coaching stint on The Voice season 21: she will be making a salary between $20 and $25 million, as reported by OK!. This massive paycheck is, of course, just for Ari to appear in season 21 – not for her to appear in multiple seasons of the show. As it stands, Ariana Grande will become the highest-paid coach in the history of The Voice, largely surpassing the likes of Kelly Clarkson, Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Christina Aguilera, and Shakira. As of 2021, Ariana’s net worth is estimated to be $180 million (via Celebrity Net Worth)
Going by these estimates, Ariana Grande would be making the same salary on The Voice as Katy Perry makes as a judge on American Idol. With that said, Katy has been an Idol judge for four seasons, which means that she’s already made as much as $100 million from the series. It isn’t likely that an artist as busy as Ari will keep coming back to The Voice, but with such a huge salary, no one can completely rule that option out. There’s also the chance that Ariana Grande will have a lot of fun on the show, which could sway her into coming back a few more times.
One thing is certain: the fans are very excited to see Ariana Grande in action as a The Voice coach. She is a powerful vocalist and an experienced popstar, making her the absolute perfect choice to guide the contestants on the show to achieve their dreams.
