‘The Voice’: Team Alicia Keys power rankings best to worst on eve of season 14 battle round

Alicia Keys returns to “The Voice” as a coach after taking last season off. She won season 12 in the spring of 2017 when she mentored Chris Blue. In her first stint as a coach in season 11, her artist We McDonald managed a third-place finish behind the winner Sundance Head from Team Blake Shelton and Adam Levine’s runner-up Billy Gilman.

The battle round of season 14 of “The Voice” kicks off on March 19. In anticipation of these four episodes, we have compiled a power ranking of the 12 artists on Team Alicia Keys. The would-be winners are listed from best to worst based on their reception in the blind auditions, the resulting sales of their tracks on iTunes and the votes of viewers like you. If you haven’t voted in our poll yet, be sure to do so at the bottom of this post and then sound off in the comments section about both Keys and her team. (Vote in the polls on Team Kelly Clarkson, Team Adam Levine and Team Blake Shelton too.)

After six episodes of blind auditions, Keys has put together an exceptionally strong team of artists to take forward into the battle round. Her 12 artists earned a whopping 29 chair turns during the blind auditions. At this stage of the competition, she must pit pairs of contestants against each other in six sing-offs. The winner of each of these, as determined by Keys and her advisor, teen singing sensation Shawn Mendes, will move on to the knockout round. And Keys will get a chance to send a lifeline to two artists from other teams who lose their battles.
