Still keeping track of where we are 🙂
Cali Jones-lesbian, kickboxing country hopeful; knocked out Elliemae in a montaged battle
Corey Jackson-deep voiced, country singer w/ a little Musical Theatre vibe mixed in
Elliemae-Young folk country singer from Idaho. Forced to immediately go back to work on the family dairy farm after her loss to Cali in the battles
Joana Martinez-Cue a million, "I can't believe your only 15's!". Smoky voiced, Miami teen probably made a shrewd decision joining Team Blake
Jordan Chase-19 year old, long haired southern soul singer displaced by Hurricane Katrina
Josie Jones-traditional country teen from small town Alabama. Lost to Kat (and was not saved or stolen) in a somewhat surprising turn of events. Now has to go back to her Ag and Welding focused high school, graduate & then come to Nashville according to Darius Rucker
Kat Hammock-wispy voiced teen in the Dia Frampton lane. Eliminated Josie by playing to her strengths on "Take Me Home Country Roads", a song that wildly favored her going into the battle
Marina Chello-once upon time P Diddy, Bad Boy Entertainment signee that went nowhere. Hoping for a musical comeback
Matthew McQueen (new)-Smarmy gold salesman. Hate the Lewis Capaldi version of that song and didn't like Matt's much better. Has to be pure fodder on Team Blake.
Ricky Braddy-Once upon a time American Idol contestant, Recently out of the closet thanks to a supportive BF
Ricky Duran-Has the sob story double with father's suicide and mother's death from illness. Impressive schnoz in profile, solid (but not spectacular IMO) singer who also shrewdly (or stupidly...time will tell) picked Blake
Zach Bridges-Blake wannabe, did Ol' Red to coerce a turn. We probably need one more VA Hospital X-Ray Technician more than we need one more mediocre country singer in Nashville
Brennen Henson-21 year old who auditioned partially to give his hometown of Flint, Michigan some positivity. Indie/Alternative sounds seems a good fit with Gwen
Calvin Lockett-smooth singing R&B artist, struggled between his Gospel background and singing secular music before auditioning for the Voice
Caroline Reilly (new)-Gwen finally got her pretty, teen, (70s rock?) princess. If the show is to be believed, she got the very last of the 48 spots.
Destiny Rayne (STOLEN from Team Legend)-Florida singer impressively held her own against Katie Kadan's monster voice earning a Steal from Gwen and an attempted steal from Blake
Elize Azkoul-Vocal coach from Atlanta was slayed by the Myracle. Not saved or stolen either
Jake Haldenvang-long haired rocker
James Violet-Introverted singer-songwriter from Utah, gave busking a go for a couple of years in LA but it ended badly
Jessie Lawrence-31 year old who grew up in the foster system got a last second(ish) and probably undeserved turn from Gwen
Kiara Brown-indie, singer-songwriter-y artist from Las Vegas. Put a chill twist on Tom Petty's Free Fallin
Myracle Holloway-At 44, I think our oldest competitor. Battled back from substance abuse issues to give the Voice a shot, and pretty easily defeated Elize in her battle
Rose Short-couldn't get John Legend to turn on his own song, did get a turn from Gwen though
Royce Lovett-Reggae/R&B fusion artist seemed tailor-made for Team Gwen from the first few notes..
Dane & Stephanie-twin harmony act w/ Dane having already transitioned from Dana
Jared Herzog-Total fodder for Team John w/ a hot girlfriend and a very tenuous connection to former Voice winner Jordan Smith.
Katie Kadan-Monster voice carried the day in Tiny Dancer battle with Destiny
Khalea Lynee-Another Florida person. Unsurprising that this 36 year old WOMAN came out victorious versus a 16 year old girl singing a sexy sassy song about claiming a man
Marybeth Byrd-4 chair turn (w/ a Blake being blocked by Kelly), pretty spot on rendition of Angel of Montgomery
Matthew New-Starting a family at 18 postponed dreams of a music career until recently. Adorable sons and wife helped him make the terrible John Legend decision that ended in a montaged battle loss
Max Boyle-Who? Well, Mr. Who won a battle round. Kudos to him, I guess
Mendeleyev-true hippie spawn (with like 10 middle names to prove it), very interesting voice with serious control over his low register
Preston Howell-14 year old crooner (Isn't there always?) from Miami
Will Breman-Another Who?
Zoe Upkins (New & SAVED by Team Legend)-Precocious teen did well despite singing a song on Khalea's turf. Got John's save, could've been stolen by Kelly or Gwen
Alex Guthrie-one of the plethora of WGWG's this season. From what I recall, felt freeflowing and loose...like a jam band singer. Took down Injoy on Marc Broussard's Home (A great Voice song IMO)
Brennan Lassiter-on first glance, a pretty country princess. But her voice has some edge and weight to it.
Brooke Stephenson-This season's Lauren Duski. Mature beyond her years, not flashy but someone who could be around for a while
Damali-Military high school kid has to be one of the 2 or 3 most least deserving turns of the season. Thanks, Kelly.
Gracee Shrivers (New)-With Blake's team full, Kelly lucked into a 16 year old with a deep and rich country voice for her final contestant. Feels an almost lock for an upcoming battle with Brennan
Hello Sunday-27 year old (combined) duo, a little bit of all over the place manic energy. If it could be harnessed, they might be factor on Kelly's team
Injoy Fountain- A questionable loss to Alex in her battle with no steal or save to bail her out. Why let America have the fun of eliminating the larger, older African-American female contestant with a powerhouse voice this season when the judges can do it for themselves in the battles or KOs lol
Jake Hoot-rare country artist Blake did not turn for. Was his team full at that point? Or more a verdict on Jake's somewhat pinched, higher voice than a guy of his size might be expected to have
Laura Hall-7th time auditioning was a charm for this former college soccer player and daughter of Honduran immigrants
Melinda Rodriguez (SAVED by Team Kelly)-One half of an awesome battle duet with Shane Q. No surprise she stayed with Kelly when she had the chance..
Shane Q-visually a reminder of the late stand-up comic Ralphie May (r.i.p.). Maybe just barely edged out Melinda on a Sam Smith song that was in his wheelhouse. Definitely a frontrunner on Team Kelly.
Steve Knill-37 year old from San Francisco with runs and affectations to Mt. Everest and back. Only Kelly turns, and even she wants him start dialing it back a little bit before Battle practices had enough begun yet
