The Voice Season 7 Top 32: Pre-Knockout Rankings by Team!

Mama said knock you out, goes the L.L. Cool J classic — and that’s exactly what The Voice will aim to do when Knockout Rounds begin Monday (8/7c on NBC).

But as the Season 7 coaches — Pharrell, Gwen, Adam and Blake — prepare to whittle down their teams in head-to-head solo matchups, who’s got the momentum? After all, the Knockout proceedings will whittle each team from eight hopefuls to four (with one Steal added from an opposing coach’s roster) — and that means only 20 of the 32 current artists will proceed to the Live Playoffs.

We went back and re-assessed each of the 32 singers’ Blind Auditions and Battle Rounds performances —  factoring in who got relegated to the dreaded montage treatment (sorry, Rebekah Samarin!) — then ranked each team’s eight-person roster from Most Likely to Advance (No. 1) to Most Likely to Become Cannon Fodder (No. 8).

Click through a gallery of our rankings below, then hit the comments and tell us which pre-Knockout predictions we’ve gotten right, where we went astray, and which teams and contestants you’re most excited about.

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    These early rounds are agonizingly slow and drawn out. They should be well into the finalists and live rounds by now.

  3. Send Your Hate Here says:

    Troy Ritchie is my favorite right now. Guy’s vocals have been spot on both times we’ve seen him.

    I pretty much agree with the ranking, except that I don’t feel anything about Team Blake this season. Not that I usually feel any, but half of his team was montaged… maybe that’s why.
