Bitter feud? Joe Jonas has slammed The Voice coaches

By Christina Cavaleri May 15, 2018

"We all have certain things in our back pockets we pull out when we need to."

It’s Joe Jonas' first year as a judge on The Voice downunder and he’s already feeling competitive.

The 28-year-old singer spoke to TV Week about his on screen rivalry with other judges, Boy George, Kelly Rowland and The Voice veteran, Delta Goodrem. 

“We're very competitive and spend a lot of time together.

"Sometimes you feel like your artist is getting bullied. 

“So you jump in protectively and say, 'OK, stop talking – it's enough now.'"

He does admit he was hesitant about joining the singing contest. 

"You never know what it's going to be like when you sign up.

“It's kind of a gamble. It could be like pulling teeth for six months.

"I've come in strong and I feel good about myself right now.

"There's still a lot to go through, but I really think there are some winners in there [his team].

"I'm so proud of them. They've all worked so hard and are driven."

Even though our Aussie girl, Goodrem has been a judge from the beginning (only missing one year), she is not the competition Jonas is most worried about. 

It's former Destiny's Child member, Kelly Rowland:

"Don't let her [Kelly Rowland] fool you.

“She's strategising."

"We all have certain things in our back pockets we pull out when we need to."

Your @thevoiceau coaches

Sounds like Jonas is not planning on playing nice this season.
