Top 10 Contestants of All Time


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi guys, so this a totally opinion based thread, but which 12 artists to this day do you love to your very core.  In a way, if you could build the most insane top 12 of a season possible, who would be there? Mine are in order, but they don't have to be, please have fun!

1. Kimberly Nichole, Team Christina, Season 8

2. Amber Carrington, Team Adam, Season 4

3. Janice Freeman, Team Miley, Season 13

4. Jordan Smith, Team Adam, Season 9

5. Judith Hill, Team Adam, Season 4

6. Ali Caldwell, Team Miley, Season 11

7. Jacquie Lee, Team Christina, Season 5

8.  Matt McAndrew, Team Adam, Season 7

9. Mia Z, Team Pharrell, Season 8

10. Sandy Redd, Team Jennifer, Season 15

11.  Jej Vinson, Team Kelly, Season 16

12. Brennly Brown, Team Gwen, Season 12

HM: Korin Bukowski, Team Gwen, Season 9 (I followed Korin before she came on the Voice and I started watching with my family hard core because of her, so she will always have a piece of heart despite kinda flopping in the Lives)

1. Madi Davis (season 9) - Not a single performance I didn't like from her. A Case of You is the best performance of any version of The Voice IMO. Fantastic performer who deserved to win Season 9.

2. Maelyn Jarmon (season 16) - One of the very few times America got it right. Flawless performances all season. Her version of The Scientist is still in heavy rotation for me.

3. Addison Agen (season 13) - Unique tone, fantastic song choices all season, and very tasteful stylistic choices. What's not to love?

4. Lauren Duski (season 12) - The fact that she lost to a generic r&b singer still gets upsets me to this day. America's biggest mistake. My favorite country singer to ever go on The Voice.

5. Christina Grimmie (season 6) - RIP. Really pretty voice. Hold On, We're Going Home is one of, if not the best live performance on the show.

6. Kimberly Nichole (season 8 ) - Objectively the best singer on the show. Can't say enough about her. So robbed.

7. Jeffrey Austin (season 9) - Loved him since his audition. How was he a one chair turn? His tone is so unique, in a good way.

8. Brynn Cartelli (season 14) - Can't believe people don't like her here.I don't want to be one of the "ShE's OnLy 14" crowd, but the amount of emotion she conveyed at her young age was insane.

9. Amber Carrington (season 4) - Ugh, I loved her so much! So many all time great performances from her. Her duet with Holly Tucker is an all time fav.

10. Kyla Jade (season 14) - The full package. Amazing tone, crazy range, and one of the most powerful singers I've ever heard.

 

HM to Ali Caldwell, Vanessa Fergusson, and Kaleigh Glanton

Really, really want back (no order within, excludes winners of the show)

  • SandyRedd (S15)
  • Ali Caldwell (S11)
  • Kyla Jade (S14)
  • Juliet Simms (S2)
  • James Wolpert (S5)
  • Matt McAndrew (S7)
  • Michelle Chamuel (S4)
  • Mendeleyev (S17)
  • Holly Tucker (S4)
  • Chris Jamison (S7)

Winners I want back (no order within)

  • Alisan Porter (S10)
  • Jordan Smith (S9)
  • Sawyer Fredericks (S8)
  • Maelyn Jarmon (S16)
  • Tessanne Chin (S5)

Current Favorites (Season 18)

  • Thunderstorm Artis
  • Todd Tilghman
  • Toneisha Harris
  • Roderick Chambers
  • Megan Danielle

Honorable Mentions

  • Stephanie Rice (S12)
  • Will Breman (S17)
  • Domenic Haynes (S16)
  • Amy Vachal (S9)
  • Judith Hill (S4)
  • Sisaundra Lewis (S6)
  • Hannah Huston (S10)

  • Noah Mac (S13)
  • Addison Agen (S13)
  • Brennley Brown (S12) 
  • Wé McDonald (S11)
  • Brooke Simpson (S13)

Basically delete my "Winners I Want Back" and "Current Favorites" sections and go nuts with everyone else - that top 24 would be legitimately insane (I tried to pull in as many genres as I could so that there'd be something for everyone to root for, but if I included everyone I wanted to then we'd be here for the next several months).

This is based on how much I enjoyed their run on the show and how much I enjoy their post Voice work and ethic.

 

10. Jeffery Austin (S9)

09. Will Breman (S17)

08. Todd Tilghman (S18) - probably too early for this, but I am really enjoying his performances and supporting him through the FB group.

07. Ryan Quinn (S10)

06. Michael Sanchez (S11)

05. Josh Kaufman (S6)

04. Hunter Plake (S12)

03. Luke Wade (S7)

02. Kameron Marlowe (S15) - I truly think he has a strong chance to become a household name based on his body of work post-Voice.

01. Barrett Baber (S9) - the hardest-working, most prolific snowflake I ever had. It was a wild ride supporting his Voice journey, but it was even more wild supporting him off the show. Met some really cool people because of him as well. Love this guy to death and he deserved every success that came his way.

It was probably a way for her to distance herself from the show.

I get it but it's kinda weird. M and K must mean something. Maybe M is her Middle Initial and K=Kohanski?

It's very difficult, I don't take into account if they were winners or not, but rather to my taste and what they brought to the show. And now that I've gone over the names, I really think the women had a better run than the men, lol
