NBC’s The Voice has gone through its fair share of judges. And with Adam Levine leaving the show last year, fans wondered who they’d bring on as a replacement.
On Monday, Nick Jonas made his debut as the newest judge on Season 18 of The Voice.
But even though he’s the new kid on the block, Jonas has been in the industry for years.
Which begs the question: How much is the pop singer getting paid as a judge on the show? And how does his salary compare to the other judges?
Let’s take a look!
According to StyleCaster, the Jonas Brother is making somewhere between $8 million and $10 million a season.
This range is estimated based on his career thus far.
Nick Jonas has been in the music industry since he was 12-years-old. He released his first single in 2002 and formed the Jonas Brothers a couple of years later.
The singer has had an incredibly successful career over the years, and currently holds a net worth of $25 million dollars.
And since The Voice films two seasons a year, Jonas stands to make an annual salary of $20 million.
Blake Shelton has been a judge on The Voice since its inception.
And while we don’t know what the country singer was making on Season 1, we do know he signed a deal with NBC in 2016 to earn $13 million a season. That puts him at $26 million a year!
Not to mention, that contract was before Adam Levine walked away (reportedly because of his rocky relationship with Shelton). So, there’s a chance he could be making more if NBC is worried about losing the likable judge.
American Idol winner, Kelly Clarkson, appeared on Season 14 of The Voice. Surprisingly, her earnings are higher than her co-stars!
Clarkson, 37, signed a deal when she first started, to receive $14 million per season. Since then, the mother of two has won three seasons. So chances are, she’s earning a little more than what was originally agreed on.
Even if she’s not, she’s still bringing in $28 million a year. That, added to her net worth of almost $50 million, means she’s doing just fine in the money department.
Like Jonas, John Legend is new-ish to the panel, having joined the show in 2019 in its 16th season.
The husband of Chrissy Teigen’s salary isn’t known.
But considering he’s won several Grammy Awards, Billboard Music Awards, and BET Awards, we’re pretty sure he’s making more than Jonas. (Maybe more than every judge on the show.)
StyleCaster estimates his salary is similar to Clarkson’s, between $13 and $14 million.
Legend was the winning coach in 2019, so his salary could be even higher than estimated.
