The coaches showed us how it's done by taking the stage themselves and performing Nick Jonas' hit song 'Jealous'.

'The Voice' kicked off this episode and night with all four coaches taking the stage to sing a beautifully tropical rendition of the popular song by Nick, who begins the performance with his all-too-recognizable sound with John Legend, Blake Shelton and Kelly Clarkson all joining in one after the other.

Nick says before the performance that this song was written at a time when he didn't know what would come next for him, but it was the song that reignited his career and his passion for performing once again. The song turned out to be a massive hit, and the music video garnered praise for having positive messages seen in the background. Nick has previously collaborated with Tinashe on a remix of the song, and now he's giving us a new version with his fellow coaches.

Nick says the rehearsals for this performance with his fellow coaches got him emotional, complimenting each coach's addition to and take on the song.

Blake says, "Let's do something fun!" as the coaches walk onto the stage and we're ready to see exactly how amazing the coaches are this season.

Kelly wows us with some stunning vocals that we have come to expect from the singing contest veteran, but she manages to kick things into overdrive with some powerful belts and high notes. Nick delivers his signature highs and falsettos, and John joins in with some of his own, even getting a short duet with Blake. Blake also shows us just why he has been a coach for as long as he has — his vocals are perfectly steady all the way through.

The change-up in the song's instrumentals lends itself perfectly to John's soulful vocals and he glides stunningly through the ups and downs of the song.

One thing is certain — this performance shows us these coaches bring something unique to the table and will be invaluable to the singers on their respective teams. This should turn out to be a fascinating season.
