Described as the “hipster” contestant, Williams certainly make the girls in the crowd swoon. He has never been near the bottom of the weekly standings and has his own unique style. Can he upset frontrunners Matt McAndrew and Craig Wayne Boyd to be the champ for his coach Gwen Stefani?
The top five remaining contenders will take the stage Monday on “The Voice.” Only three of them will still be eligible after the home audience votes are revealed on Tuesday night.
McAndrew is at the top of our leaderboard with 14/5 odds (see chart at left). Boyd is next at 4/1, but Williams is very close at 5/1. Much longer shots are Damien Lawson at 11/2 and Chris Jamison at 13/2.
The coaches this year are Adam Levine (winner of the first and fifth seasons), Blake Shelton (champ for the second, third, and fourth seasons), and newcomers Stefani and Pharrell Williams. Team Pharrell currently has no contestants remaining, but there will be a “wild card” round upcoming where somebody will be invited to return.

Matt McAndrew: 14/5 odds for Team Adam. From Barnegat Light, NJ. His songs this season have been “A Thousand Years,” “Yellow,” “Drops of Jupiter,” “God Only Knows,” “Take Me to Church,” “Fix You,” and “The Blower’s Daughter.”
