The 20th series of the show is currently airing on US network NBC.
Jonas first joined the show for its 18th series but was absent for the 19th, when he was replaced by Gwen Stefani.
Grande, 27, who recently announced her engagement to boyfriend Dalton Gomez, released her sixth album Positions last year.
It was her first record since 2019’s Thank U, Next.
She also released a concert film from her Sweetener world tour on Netflix.
