Top 10 Singers on "The Voice"
1. Bodie — Team Blake Shelton
Blake Shelton remarked during Bodie’s audition for “The Voice” that the 29-year-old vocalist from California had “what it takes to make it to the finale of ‘The Voice.'”
“Let’s win this,” Shelton declared.
Bodie is now in the top ten of the show, getting closer to that prediction.
During the Knockout round, Bodie overcame Team Blake singers Kevin Hawkins and The Dryes, and Shelton said the show has never seen a performer like him before.
After performing The Fray’s “You Found Me” for his blind audition, the singer originally had all four judges rooting for him. Gwen Stefani described him as a “unique type of performer,” while John Legend praised the singer for bringing his own soulful take of the song to the “Voice” stage. However, in the end, Bodie chose to join Shelton’s team, where he has remained throughout his stint on the show. It’s #1 on our top 10 the voice list!
2. Bryce Leatherwood — Team Blake Shelton
Bryce Leatherwood has also been with Shelton since the beginning.
The country singer had three coaches vying for him after performing Conway Twitty’s “Goodbye Time” for his blind audition: Shelton, Stefani, and Legend. Legend praised Leatherwood’s voice for its “richness,” and Stefani, who is married to Shelton, stated that she has a strong affinity for country music despite not being a country singer. However, the 22-year-old Georgia singer stayed true to his country roots and chose Shelton.
3. Rowan Grace — Team Blake Shelton
Rowan Grace began her “Voice” journey with Gwen Stefani, but was taken by Shelton during the Knockout phase.
Shelton was the only coach who did not choose Grace, a 16-year-old vocalist from South Dakota, during the blind audition round, which he immediately regretted.
“I’m the dumbass here who didn’t turn my chair around,” Shelton stated after Olivia Rodrigo’s “Traitor” performance. “However, I am extremely happy for you. So many times, we’ll see someone as young as 15, 16. Try out for this show, and they’re nothing near as prepared as you are.”
4. Parijita Bastola — Team John Legend
Parijita Bastola has a strong chance of winning the competition this season. The 17-year-old singer, the first Nepalese American to audition on “The Voice,” has enthralled the coaches throughout the competition.
During her blind audition on “The Voice,” the girl won over all of the coaches. By the time the adolescent had finished singing Labrinth’s “Jealous,” all four coaches wanted the Maryland native on their team.
The coaches were taken aback when they discovered Bastola was only 17 years old.
“You’re so natural and one-of-a-kind,” Stefani added. “You have such a strong connection to your heart; it’s fantastic.”
Bastola then revealed that her family is from Nepal and that she grew up watching the reality competition show with her family, who would close their restaurant on Mondays to watch “The Voice” together. Bastola eventually hopes to merge her roots into her singing and music.
“The best musicians are able to infuse their culture’s and roots’ sound into the larger global world of music,” Legend added. “I believe your voice has that transcending quality, and it would be an honor to work with you.”
Bastola, whose favorite genre is R&B/soul, chose Legend as her coach after much consideration.
5. Omar Jose Cardona — Team John Legend
With his enthusiastic performance of Journey’s “Separate Ways,” Omar Jose Cardona earned a four-chair turn. Following his performance, the 32-year-old singer from Orlando, Florida, stated that he eventually intended to perform in a style that blended pop and “old-school rock.”
“I haven’t heard a voice like that since the ’80s,” Stefani remarked of Cardona, who has been a full-time performer all over the world for 15 years. “We don’t hear men sing like that anymore. It was thrilling.”
Legend, the first coach to flip his chair for Cardona, said the singer had a soulful voice that sounded at times like a church singer doing rock music. Legend even went so far as to inform Cardona that he thought the singer could win the competition.
“You’re the type of musician who could win ‘The Voice,'” Legend stated. “You have a chance to win this show.”
That kind of encouragement was more than enough to persuade Cardona to join Team Legend. It’s #5 on our top 10 the voice list!
6. Kim Cruse — Team John Legend
Legend was the first coach to support Kim Cruse, but by the time she finished Daniel Caesar’s “Best Part,” the 30-year-old vocalist from Texas had all four coaches vying for her attention during the audition round.
“That was so wonderfully beautiful, I don’t really know what to say,” Stefani remarked. “God showered an amazing amount of talent on you.”
“What a great, lovely gift you have,” Legend continued, stressing how natural the performance felt and how he thought Cruse deserved to compete in the finals.
Shelton said he’s won the program with a variety of musicians over the years, including country, rock, R&B, and pop, and that there’s no reason Cruse couldn’t pick him and win.
Cruse, on the other hand, chose to join Team Legend.
7. Morgan Myles — Team Camila Cabello
Morgan Myles, a Nashville-based singer, was the first talent to join Cabello’s team this season. The singer scored a four-chair turn for her country-infused performance of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah,” which coach John Legend described as “one of the best blind auditions I’ve seen in quite a long time,” according to the Deseret News.
“I feel like you know who you are as an artist, and if you choose me as your coach, I would simply be delighted to help you on that path,” Cabello told the Deseret News. “I want what’s best for you, and if that’s Blake’s support and assistance in becoming a country musician, I’m all for that. If you want to carve your own path — you’re not a country artist, you’re not a pop artist, you’re just Morgan — then I’d be thrilled to work with you.”
Myles ended up joining Cabello’s team, where she has remained throughout her tenure on the competition.
8. Kique — Team Gwen Stefani
During the blind audition round, 18-year-old Kique had his pick between Stefani and Shelton after playing a unique rendition of Sean Kingston’s “Beautiful Girls” — however Cabello claimed she regretted not turning around for him.
“I was blown away by your voice and how accurate you are with your pitch,” Shelton said to the Miami adolescent. “I simply think you’re a fantastic singer.”
“You don’t resemble your voice,” Stefani continued. “It’s insane. Your voice is one of my favorite types of voices. It’s quite theatrical and inventive.”
Kique eventually decided to join Stefani’s team, where he has remained all season.
9. Justin Aaron — Team Gwen Stefani
Justin Aaron took a risk by performing John Legend’s song “Glory” at his blind audition. Legend did not give him a chair turn, but he was complimentary and told Aaron he was a “great voice.”
“I guess I overanalyze it when someone does my song,” Legend joked, complimenting Aaron for singing “Glory” on the show. “So don’t think it’s because of something you did wrong.”
Aaron ended up on Stefani’s team by default because she was the only coach who turned around.
“What’s the matter with you freaks?” Stefani told her fellow coaches after Aaron’s performance. “I’m not sure why the entire planet wouldn’t turn for it. That was amazing.”
10. Brayden Lape — Team Blake Shelton
Brayden Lape, although being only 15, has had no disadvantage in “The Voice” competition. During the Battle and Knockout rounds, the singer from Michigan defeated more experienced performers, with coach Camila Cabello even remarking that the teenager had a “pop record friendly” voice.
Lape’s performance on the show is especially amazing given that he wound up on Shelton’s team via default. Following Lape’s performance of Niall Horan’s “This Town,” the country star was the only coach to turn his chair during the blind audition. Lape, on the other hand, confessed that Shelton was his first pick.
Stefani expressed sorrow for not voting for Lape and stated that if the opportunity arose later in the season, she would “take” the singer from Shelton’s squad.
