Watch: Chrissy Teigen's "Awkward" Love for Ariana Grande on "The Voice"

Chrissy Teigen has an unexpected POV when it comes to Ariana Grande joining the cast of The Voice

On Monday, Sept. 20, Chrissy shared footage to her Instagram Story of herself discussing the season 21 premiere of the NBC singing competition that was set to premiere later that evening and also co-stars her husband, John Legend, as a coach. 

As the 35-year-old model explained, she found it a bit "awkward" for Ariana to be joining John in a red chair, given how often Chrissy plays the pop star's music in the home that she and John share with their children Luna, 5, and Miles, 3.

"Today is a bit of a funny day because it's the premiere of The Voice, and John absolutely knows that this house only listens to Ariana Grande," Chrissy said with a laugh. "Imagine how awkward it is for John to live in this Ariana Grande household...and have to be him."

Ariana Grande's Style Evolution

The Cravings cookbook author went on to say she was excited to watch the first episode on TV because she felt in the dark about the new dynamics, given that she hadn't been joining John on the show's set.

"Anyhow, I didn't go to any of the tapings—I have no idea who's who, or what's what—so I'm going to be watching along with all of you," she continued. "And I will be unbiased—and also support my husband?"

The "Dangerous Woman" vocalist, 28, didn't publicly respond to Chrissy's video, but she did post a screenshot to her Instagram Story of a DM Chrissy apparently sent her that day to ask, "Do u have any assets I can post to be team Ari." Chrissy also reposted the screenshot of the DM to her own Story. 

This is Ariana's first season on The Voice, and she joins returning coaches John, Blake Shelton and Kelly Clarkson. Season 20, which ended in May and also included Nick Jonas among the coaches, ended with Cam Anthony claiming the latest victory for Team Blake.

The Voice airs Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on NBC.
