"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.
