Season 16 of “The Voice” just wrapped six nights of blind auditions and all four coaches now have their initial teams of 12. Which coach do you think has assembled the strongest roster of artists this cycle: reigning two-time champ Kelly Clarkson, rookie John Legend, three-time winner Adam Levine or six-time victor Blake Shelton? Vote in our poll below as to who has the best team and then be sure to sound off on your favorite coach and artist in the comments section.
Each of these initial teams is comprised of a dozen artists from around the country who inspired at least one coach to hit their button and turn during the blind auditions. Next up are the battle rounds, where each of the four coaches will pit pairs of artists against each other to determine who will advance and who’ll be sent home. It’s at this stage that the judges are allowed to steal three artists from their rival coaches.
