The Voice coaches are getting ready for their first week of Lives, and looking at the top twenty, they couldn’t be more excited.

“The #VoiceTop20 are coming and we are beyond ready,” notes The Voice in a recent Twitter post. The post features a nearly ten-minute-long video introducing these final Voice contestants.

The Voice’s season twenty-one knockout rounds concluded last week. Now, the popular NBC show’s coaches Ariana Grande, Kelly Clarkson, John Legend, and Blake Shelton are heading into the live rounds. And, each coach is bringing with them their best artists from the season to compete.

Additionally, this season of The Voice is allowing one eliminated artist from each team to return to the show. These artists will then compete for a comeback on the series.

Fans across the Twitterverse logged on to vote for their favorite and the winners will participate in the Live Playoffs with a chance to earn a top placement.

‘The Voice’ Coaches Ready Their Teams

This may be Ariana Grande’s first year as a coach on the popular television singing competition series, but she seems poised to be ready to grab the trophy from veteran coaches as these next rounds prepare to get underway.

Ariana’s team includes the classic yet modern Raquel Trinidad who has impressed the newest The Voice coach since day one.

Ryleigh Plank is another favorite on Ariana Grande’s team. According to The Voice coach Blake Shelton, Ryleigh’s unique rocker style gives her an “it” factor that will serve her well.

Ariana’s other team members include Vaughn Mogul, Bella DeNapoli and Jim, and Sasha Allen.

Next comes Blake Shelton’s top six artists, including his comeback hopeful. These singers include Memphis Tennessee native Wendy Moten, Peedy Chavis, the nineteen-year-old Elvis impersonator, and country singer Lana Scott.

Blake’s team also includes fifteen-year-old Mississippi native Hailey Green and Paris Winningham. Winningham was originally on Team Legend. Team Shelton also includes twenty-year-old Minneapolis native, Labianca.

Team Kelly includes the season favorite, Girl Named Tom, thirteen-year-old New Jersey native Hailey Mia, and the Georgia-based vocalist Gymani.

Clarkson’s other competitors include Jeremy Rosado, Katie Rae, and Aaron Hines.

Finally, longtime The Voice host John Legend’s team includes gospel singer BrittanyBree; as well as the captivating singer Sabrina Dias who Blake Shelton has described as “endearing.”
