Celebrating 10 years on the air, singing competition The Voice will begin it’s 20th season on March 1. The show, known for it’s trademark rotating judging chairs, has inspired spin-offs all over Europe, Asia, and Australia. In the American version’s 20th season, there are some changes in the judges’ seats and new faces as the mentors. It should be another season that fans can’t get enough of, from the blind auditions to the final live performances.
Nick Jonas picked Darren Criss as his team’s mentor. Both Jonas and Criss are singers and actors. Jonas took over Criss’ role in Broadway’s How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying after Criss’s engagement was up. They also co-starred in the historical film Midway. Criss’ breakout role was on the musical series Glee and has since done everything from TV to movies to Broadway to voice acting. Criss took to Twitter to thank Jonas for picking him, joking about calling himself the “bonus Jonas.”
I know I joke a lot about being a bonus Jonas. But I guess if you joke enough about something, dreams…come…true? That’s the saying, right?
