‘The Voice’ Season 21: Which Coach Has the Highest Net Worth?

The Voice burst into living rooms across the U.S. on April 26, 2011. Since then, it has become one of the hottest shows on television. This competitive singing show is based on the Dutch program called The Voice of Holland. Here’s a look at the show and who is coaching this season.

The premise of ‘The Voice’

The premise of the show is singers competing for a cash award and a record deal. It has four celebrity coaches that help guide the singers through the process. The Voice Season 21 features Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkson, John Legend, and Ariana Grande as the four coaches. Their job is to help their vocalists win against the others, leading to a victory for one lucky artist.

An introduction to the coaches and their net worth.

First up is John Legend. Legend got his start in the music business thanks to rapper Kanye West. He performed on a few of his songs in the early 2000s. West signed him to his label GOOD Music. Legend’s biggest hit song, “All of Me,” was released in 2013. From there, his career skyrocketed. John Legend has a net worth of $75 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.

Kelly Clarkson owes her fame to a similar reality-competition program: American Idol. She was the winner of the first season of the show and has since gone on to become a singer, actress, and TV personality. Clarkson also has a variety talk show called The Kelly Clarkson Show that premiered in 2019.

Clarkson’s net worth, as reported by the website Celebrity Net Worth, is estimated in excess of $35 million. Not too shabby for the winner of a singing competition. Having her as a coach is surely a big motivator for the contestants on the show.

Ariana Grande is the youngest of the coaches. However, she is the coach with the highest net worth. According to Celebrity Net Worth, Grande is worth approximately $180 million. Grande made most of her wealth through singing and acting in shows like Victorious

Finally, country music singer Blake Shelton had some bad press at the beginning of 2021 with his song “Minimum Wage.” Understandably, some fans felt that he was out of touch with what it is like to earn minimum wage since his net worth is estimated to be $100 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.  

When does ‘The Voice’ Season 21 premiere?

Season 21 of The Voice premieres on September 20, 2021. Carson Daly returns for his 21st season as host of the show. The blind auditions will begin with the first episode. Each coach can block another coach from recruiting an artist for their team. Only one block is allowed per blind audition. By the end of the episode, each coach will have 12 artists with a total of 48 total for the season. 

The Voice has brought some big-name celebrities together to join the growing ranks of competitive style shows. It has been nominated for numerous awards, including forty Emmy Award nominations, which resulted in six wins. Clearly, the show isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. There will undoubtedly be many other celebrities to join the list of coaches in the future.
