Adam Levine has assembled a powerhouse team for this season of “The Voice.” While he has been with the show since the start, the Maroon 5 frontman has only won three of the previous 13 seasons: Javier Colon (season 1), Tessanne Chin (season 5) and Jordan Smith (season 9). He came tantalizingly close last season but his artist, Addision Agen, lost in the final to Blake Shelton‘s contender, Chloe Kohanski. That marked the sixth victory for Shelton and Levine is hoping to end that winning streak in season 14.
