‘The Voice’: Team Kelly Clarkson power rankings best to worst on eve of season 14 knockout round

Kelly Clarkson continues to impress in her first season as a coach on “The Voice.” She heads into the knockout round with one of the strongest of the four teams, rivaled only by three-time coach Alicia Keys. The two veterans of the reality competition series — Adam Levine and Blake Shelton — lag well behind.

Clarkson pitted her original dozen artists against each other in six battles. The winners of those — Alexa Cappelli, Brynn Cartelli, Jorge Eduardo, Jamella, Justin Kilgore and D.R. King — move on to the knockout round, which kicks off on April 2. Clarkson used one of her two steals in Battle 1, picking up Tish Haynes Keys when Levine opted to go with Rayshun LaMarr after their duet on “Sweetest Thing.” She used the other in Battle 3 when Shelton went with Pryor Baird over Kaleb Lee after their performance of “Don’t Do Me Like That.”

Her eight artists earned a combined 17 chair turns during the blind auditions. She chose six of these during the blind auditions while the other two were steals from coaches who went with the competing artists in the battle round.
