For the third straight week, the frontrunner status has changed for “The Voice“: Audra McLaughlin is your new favorite to win the championship with 1/100 odds. She is a team member for Blake Shelton, the winning coach from the second, third, and fourth cycles of the NBC show.
Live shows continue on Monday with the final eight contestants performing. Results are now in the hands of the home audience.
According to exclusive Gold Derby odds, last week’s predicted winner Christina Grimmie is now in second place with 8/5 odds. The favorite from two weeks ago was Sisaundra Lewis, who places in the third position with 4/1 odds. While Lewis is also on Team Blake, Grimmie is a member of Adam Levine‘s team.
Levine and Shelton have not lost any of their artists during the live rounds of the past two weeks. On the other side of fate, coaches Shakira and Usher are holding on tightly with just one contender each.
Let’s take a look at each of the contenders still trying to win “The Voice” during this sixth season.
Audra McLaughlin (100/1) – Audra is a hard-working college student who’s overcome a learning disability to earn a 3.5 GPA. A former victim of bullying, Audra is very involved with anti-bullying campaigns and has performed at several charity events. Team Blake
Christina Grimmie (8/5) – Christina first started her career on YouTube and now has more than 2 million subscribers. Her YouTube popularity landed her an opening spot on the Selena Gomez tour, but she has yet to land a record deal. Team Adam
Sisaundra Lewis (4/1) – Sisaundra was born into a family of migrant workers and grew up singing in church. She’s had some success singing jingles for commercials, performing with Cirque du Soleil and working as Celine Dion’s vocal director. Team Blake
Josh Kaufman (5/1) – A four-chair turnaround artist originally on Team Adam, Josh was stolen in the second round of battles. He has been singing on-and-off his entire life. He supports his wife and three kids by playing local gigs and working as an SAT prep tutor. Team Usher
Jake Worthington (7/11) – Jake is a true country kid who loves fishing, mudding and four-wheeling in his free time. He broke his back playing football and had to take it easy for a few months, which allowed him to discover his true passion: music. Team Blake
Kat Perkins (8/1) – Kat started a rock band with her husband; but they divorced six months later, and she decided to take a break from the music business. She’s currently a full-time nanny for a family of five, with whom she created an unofficial band for fun. Team Adam
Delvin Choice (12/1) – After not making a team in Season 5, Delvin is back to prove that he belongs on The Voice stage. He joined two bands to prepare for this season and spent the year playing various gigs. Team Adam
Kristen Merlin (16/1) – Kristen has always faced ridicule for her tomboy appearance. She loves music and wants to use her passion and the national platform of The Voice to represent others who may be judged by how they look and not for who they are. Team Shakira
