‘The Voice’: Team Blake Shelton power rankings best to worst at midpoint of season 14 battle round

Like his long-time rival coach on “The VoiceAdam Levine, Blake Shelton has only paired up four of his 12 artists in the first two battle rounds of season 14 on March 19 and 20. While the two battle winners — Kyla Jade and Jaron Strom — move on to the knockout round, neither of the losers (JessLee and Bransen Ireland) were stolen by any of the other coaches. Conversely, Shelton used one of his two steals to throw Dylan Hartigan a lifeline after Kelly Clarkson opted to keep Brynn Cartelli following their battle duet on “…Ready for It?”

We will see Shelton’s other eight artists — Pryor Baird, Spensha Baker, Dallas Caroline, Austin Giorgio, Brett Hunter, Jordan Kirkdorffer, Kaleb Lee and Wilkes — do battle on March 26 and 27. He will have to winnow them down to four and use his other steal as well. That will leave him with eight artists to take to the knockout round.

We have compiled a power ranking of the 11 artists currently on Team Blake Shelton. These would-be winners are listed from best to worst based on their reception in the blind auditions and battles, the resulting sales of their tracks on iTunes and the votes of viewers like you.
