The new season of The Voice is only days away now. Not only are fans excited for Ariana Grande to take over as judge, but so are her co-stars Kelly Clarkson, John Legend, and Blake Shelton.

All four judges sat down with Carson Daly to talk about the latest round of the singing competition. Clarkson, Legend, and Shelton all took turns to gush about Grande, too.

"I'm going to be real with y'all, she's funny on camera but 100 times funnier behind the scenes," Clarkson said of the newest judge. "None of my jokes can make it to air," Grande replied, adding that the trouble she gets in for her colorful language is "worth it to make them laugh." Daly then joked the show doubled its budget to "bleep" out Grande's curse words on air.

While Clarkson cited Grande's sense of humor as the highlight of working with her, Legend raved about her talent. “I'm a huge fan of Ariana. My whole family are huge fans. I can sing along to pretty much any song of hers. I'm a super fan. So having her here on the show, knowing what kind of audience she brings to the show, knowing how much people love her out in the world, it's going to be so great for The Voice," he said.

Shelton took home the top prize last year, but Grande told E! News she thinks Legend's team is the real threat this time around. We'll have to tune in to The Voice Monday, Sept. 20, at 8 p.m. ET on NBC to see what happens.
