The Voice: All 12 Winners Ranked
The Voice has been a hit on NBC ever since its inaugural season in 2011, and has become one of the most popular talent competition series on TV. Along with an incredible Blind Audition process, fans have become attached to the show because of the celebrity coaches which have included the likes of Blake Shelton, Adam Levine, Christine Aguilera, Usher, Miley Cyrus and more. Some incredible performances have been done on the show, and though it may be hard, there can only be one winner. While every winner has had incredible talent, there have been some winners that fans don’t agree with, and others that didn’t have nearly as much success as many expected after their season came to an end. Take a look back at all 12 winners ranked:
12. Chris Blue
Season 12 of The Voice ran from February 27, 2017 to May 23, 2017 and after a lot of tough competition it was Chris Blue who was finally crowned the season’s winner. Blue’s win gave Alicia Keys her first win as a coach, and his win was not at all surprising thanks to his incredible performances and show-stopping charisma. On top of it all, Blue became the very first The Voice winner to be the last contestant featured in the blind auditions and it was luck that Alicia Keys still had room on her team by the time his audition came around. While there is no doubt that Blue has boundless talent, fans have seen it isn’t that easy to become a success in the music industry even after winning the show, so for now Chris Blue ranks at number 12.
11. Craig Wayne Boyd
Season seven contestant and eventual winner Craig Wayne Boyd was perhaps one of the show’s most talked about contestants of all time. The country rocker was a natural selection for Blake Shelton’s team, and along with his talent both with singing and on the guitar, his handsome rocker look also made him a hit with fans. While there is no denying his talent, Boyd is at number eleven because he had an unfair advantage, having released two albums before even appearing on The Voice and even opening for acts such as Randy Houser and Brantley Gilbert. With so much experience behind him, Boyd should have had much more success after his win and signing his record deal, but Boyd left the record label before releasing an album. Although there were reports the singer was dropped, he maintains that he left on his own accord.
