Blake Shelton has a really good shot at securing his ninth victory on “The Voice” — more victories than any other coach — with three of the top five singers coming from his team.
Here’s a breakdown of the three artists remaining on Shelton’s team.
Team Blake Shelton on ‘The Voice’ 2022
Shelton predicted early on that Bodie has what it takes to reach the finals, and now, that prediction is getting close to coming true.
The 29-year-old singer from California is one of the top five singers remaining in the competition.
Bodie initially had all four coaches fighting for him after performing The Fray’s “You Found Me” for his blind audition. Shelton, who noted that he was the first coach to turn around for the singer, said he believed Bodie had “what it takes to make it to the finale of ‘The Voice.’”
“Let’s win this thing,” Shelton said.
Stefani called him a rare kind of performer while Legend said he liked how the singer brought his own soulful interpretation of the song to the “Voice” stage. But in the end, Bodie opted to go with Shelton, where he has remained his entire time on the show.
Leatherwood has been on Shelton’s team from the start. After performing Conway Twitty’s “Goodbye Time” for his blind audition, the country singer had three coaches vying for him: Shelton, Stefani and Legend. Legend complimented the “richness” in Leatherwood’s voice, and Stefani, who is married to Shelton, said she had a deep appreciation for country music despite not being a country artist. In the end, though, the 22-year-old singer from Georgia stuck to his country roots and picked Shelton.
Although he’s only 15, Brayden Lape hasn’t had any sort of disadvantage in “The Voice” competition. The singer from Michigan defeated more seasoned performers during earlier rounds of the competition, with Cabello even commenting that the teenager had a “pop record friendly” voice, the Deseret News reported.
Being in the show’s top five is especially impressive for Lape, considering he initially ended up on Shelton’s team by default. The country star was the only coach to turn his chair during the blind audition, following Lape’s performance of Niall Horan’s “This Town.” But Lape admitted that Shelton was his first choice anyway.
