‘The Voice’: Team Blake Shelton Top 12 power rankings best to worst for season 14

Blake Shelton has been a coach on the “The Voice” since it started in 2011 and has won a whopping six of the previous 13 seasons. He is the reigning champ, having coached Chloe Kohanksi to victory last fall. However, he may have a hard time winning for a lucky seventh time in season 14 with the return of Alicia Keys and the addition of Kelly Clarkson to the coaching panel. Our readers say that both those women have stronger teams heading into the Top 12 live round, which kicks off on April 23.

As with the other three coaches, Shelton had his team of six cut down to three during the Top 24 round that just ended. We have compiled a power ranking of the contestants now on Team Blake Shelton. These would-be winners are listed from best to worst based on: their reception in the Top 24, knockouts, battles and blind auditions; the resulting sales of their tracks on iTunes; and the votes of viewers like you.

Read the recap of each of the songs that got them to this stage of the competition. 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 Shelton and his years as a coach on “The Voice.”
