The Voice Top 24

The Voice: Ranking the Top 24 (By Team!) Before the Live Playoffs

This is Xtina’s world. But The Voice wouldn’t be nothin’ — no nothin’ — without Season 10’s boys and girls.

Apologies to James Brown, but as the live playoffs kick off tonight (8/7c), it looks like the “girl curse*” of NBC’s reality singing juggernaut is about to be broken — thanks to Christina Aguilera’s deep and seemingly unbeatable roster of contestants. (*The girl curse refers to the fact that no female coach has won the show in nine cycles.)

Of course, under the rules set up by exec producer Mark Burnett & Co., the Lady Aguilera can only have three team members advance to next week’s Top 12 — so all hope is not lost for her comrades Pharrell Williams, Blake Shelton and Adam Levine.

We’ve taken the liberty of ranking each coach’s artists from No. 6 to No. 1 based on the strength of their Blinds, Battles and Knockouts — and general Internet buzz — including the four rumored “coach’s comeback” picks who’ll re-enter the fray this week (gleaned from iTunes pre-sales for Teams Blake and Xtina, and from the reliable MJSbigblog for Teams Adam and Pharrell).

    Adam on the voice need to sing one of Treviso Trenton songs. I’m sure he would blow it out of the water

  2. Matt says:

    Mary Sara is ranked lower than I think she should be. She’s definitely top 1 or 2 on Blake’s team.

  3. Adam on Blake’s team Keep, KEEP!!!

    Katie on Blake’s Team! Just listen to “Georgia Rain” on iTunes- wow!
