SINCE The Voice debuted in 2011, there have been more than a dozen coaches on the reality competition series.
From country singers to pop heartthrobs, each judge on The Voice is unique and specializes in different things, which is why their salaries aren’t all the same.
How much do judges get paid on The Voice?
The price tag per judge varies based on their personal fame, their tenure on the show, and the number of wins they have from past seasons.
Most of the judges average around $13million per season.
For example, Blake Shelton is rumored to make $13million per season; however, he’s had the most wins in the show’s history, and he’s been on the show since its inception.
For these reasons, he’s likely to have been given bonuses.
Also, Shelton is a regular on both seasons of The Voice (there are two per year), which means he makes about $26million per year from the show.
Returning judge John Legend also makes a reported $13million per season.
Who was the highest-paid judge in the history of The Voice?
Ariana Grande was paid a reported $25million per season, making her the highest-paid judge on The Voice.
She was paid so much because she brought much of the Gen Z and Millenial viewership to the show.
She won’t be returning this season, and neither will Kelly Clarkson, who was paid $14million per season.
Who is replacing Ariana Grande and Kelly Clarkson on The Voice this season?
This season, the two vacancies created by the loss of Kelly Clarkson and Ariana Grande will be filled by returning judge Gwen Stefani and new judge Camila Cabello.
Gwen has been a judge on the show in the past when she was said to have begun at around $ 10million, and worked her way up to $15million.
Camila Cabello will likely start on the lower end of the scale, but if she can pull the younger viewers like Ariana Grande did, then the sky will be the limit for her.
