Quick! Name all 32 artists still battling for The Voice Season 9 crown!

We kid, we kid: With the Knockout Rounds beginning tonight (8/7c on NBC), it’s still way too early to remember more than a handful of faves — let alone develop emotional attachments.

To help get you ready for the portion of the competition focused on jaw-dropping performances, copious competitive bloodletting and special advisor Rihanna, we’ve put together a gallery of 12 contestants to whom you ought pay special attention.

Check out our lineup below — or click here for direct access — then share your own rooting interests for the Knockout Rounds (and your level of fear that Gwen, Blake, Adam and Pharrell will mess it all up).

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!

  3. Florence+TheMachineRules!!! #MariahSlays says:

    Yasss!!! Shelby is my overall favorite this season. I also like Korin, Andi & Alex, Ellie, Regina, Mark, Jordan, Ivonne, Morgan and Evan!!!

  4. Timmah says:

    You can watch them if you like, but I’ll be watching Jordan Smith

  5. akillesheel says:

    No Jordan, no Viktor, no Darius, Michael?

  6. Avery Conley says:

    I like blind joe the best bc he is so good for being blind like omg that’s amazing

  7. Carfield says:

    I am not sure if this will be my top 12 pick… plus any list without Jordan and Victor is a crime… given a preview of their knockout round last weekend in various social media, these two artists are not going anywhere soon!

  8. Jim Wallace says:

    this is the toughest season yet, soooo much new talent its hard to say but at least ten are gonna be pushing the judges to the limit and when they start losing their top choices its going to break a lot of hearts.

  9. Katie c says:

    Where is Jordan Smith..Victor karily and the girl who sang Sunday kind of love. The ones listed by you..alot r gone. If we r going solely on voice,Jordan cannot be touched.

  10. Jenks says:

    Wel, so much for this list. Three of them are already gone.
