“The Voice” is two weeks away from crowning the winner of Season 21, and the competition is only getting tougher.

The contestants battled it out on the stage with melodies that have impressed coaches and the audience. Now, fans have made their decisions and eight contestants will make it to the semifinals.

Though the playing field isn’t even. Per USA Today, the four coaches — Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkson, John Legend, and Ariana Grande — don’t have the same number of contestants playing for their team.

  • Blake Shelton has three.
  • Kelly Clarkson and John Legend have two each.
  • And Ariana Grande, this year’s celebrity guest coach, only has one.

Here are our eight contestants:

Team Blake

Paris Winningham

It’s unsurprising that Paris Winningham made it to the top. He performed “Amazed” by Lonestar.

Lana Scott

Fans voted for Lana Scott to move forward to the next round after she sang “The One That Got Away” by Katy Perry.

Wendy Moten

A fan favorite, Wendy Moten, who has toured with big artists as a background singer, performed “Jolene” by Dolly Parton. She definitely has a shot at winning the competition, according to Screen Rant.

Team Kelly

Girl Named Tom

This three-person group also earned enough votes to move forward in the competition. They performed “Viva La Vida” by Coldplay, impressing coaches and fans alike.

Hailey Mia

This 13-year-old, the youngest in the competition, has a powerful voice which she showcased by performing “Peter Pan” by Kelsea Ballerini, earning a spot in the next round.

Team John

Jershika Maple

Though Jershika Maple gave it her all while performing “Ain’t It Fun” by Paramore, she didn’t earn enough votes to make it to the top eight. Thankfully, she did win an Instant Save, helping her move forward to the next round.

Joshua Vacanti

Performing “If I Ain’t Got You” by Alicia Keys, Joshua Vacanti not only stepped out of his comfort zone but earned his fans’ hearts.

Team Ariana

Jim & Sasha Allen

This father and son duo is the only act left from Team Ariana, narrowing Grande’s chances of winning the show as a first-time coach. Jim and Sasha performed “Stay” by Rihanna.
