Team John:
Katie Kadan (Piece of My Heart – Janis Joplin) vs. Max Boyle (when the party’s over – billie eilish) – STOLEN BY KELLY; Gwen also tried to steal.
-Katie got a standing ovation, Max got a standing o as well. Max was a fantastic surprise and Kelly kept telling the panel that he was “so good.” Apparently, Kelly told John during the break that she had been saving her steal for Preston Howell (remember this comment for later tbh)

Team Kelly:
Hello Sunday (Almost Is Never Enough – Ariana Grande) vs. Alex Guthrie (I’m Not The Only One – Sam Smith) – STOLEN BY JOHN
-Kelly apparently felt like Hello Sunday was more “unique” and there was no one else like them in the competition. John stole Alex.
-Source argues that Hello Sunday is literally being carried by one member because the other isn’t that good.

Team John:
Will Breman (I Don’t Care – Ed & Bieber) vs. Zoe Upkins (Like I’m Gonna Lose You – Meghan Trainor)
-One source said they were average but the coaches thought Will was fun, the other said Will was a mess but at least it was a “fun mess.” No steal for Zoe here.

Team Blake:
Ricky Duran (She Talks to Angels – The Black Crowes) vs. Joana Martinez (California Dreamin’ – The Mamas & The Papas) – STOLEN BY GWEN
-Ricky and Joana were both “so good,” although one source said Ricky was “slightly better”
-Gwen stole Joana “for Blake”

Team Kelly:
Damali Gutierrez (Sober – Demi Lovato) vs. Gracee Shriver (A country song) STOLEN BY BLAKE
-Both were good, but Gracee was better. Kelly pulled a Pharrell here.
-After the taping was recorded, apparently Kelly said she wanted Gracee.
-The other source commented that Gracee has a unique yodeling type of tone that was “way better”

TAPING TWO
Team John
Khalea Lynee (TBA – Celine Dion) vs. James Violet (TBA- Post Malone)
-The judges commented that this was the best Khalea’s performed across all rounds thus far. James could’ve done better if he wasn’t up against someone like Khalea.

Team Kelly
Shane Q (TBA) vs. Kiara Brown (TBA)
-Shane “really delivered” and the coaches thought it was his best performance to date. Kiara was “OK.”

Team Gwen
Rose Short (TBA) vs. Destiny Rayne (TBA)
-Rose had easily “the best performance of the taping” and Kelly said that even she couldn’t go up against Rose.
-Rose completed overshadowed Destiny and the source couldn’t remember much about Destiny’s actual performance.
-The coaches said Destiny did her best she ever did but had no chance up against Rose.

Team Blake
Cali Wilson (Wicked Game – Chris Isaak) vs. Marina Chello (TBA)
-Cali and Marina both did great.
-Gwen commented that if she’d known that they were going up against each other, she would have saved her steal.
-The judges mentioned that Cali had won her battle/was not stolen so that officially places her on Team Blake post-blinds.
-People were very disappointed that there was no steal available for Marina.

Post-blind teams, as they are currently known/understood.

Unplaced (7)

Caroline Reilly
Jared Herzog (turned at least Gwen and John’s chair)
Joana Martinez* (on Blake’s team for KO’s)
Lauren Hall** (likely on Blake’s team for KO’s)
Myracle Holloway (turned Gwen and Blake’s chairs)
Zach Bridges (turned at least Gwen but not John)

*Because we do not know Blake’s steal from battle rounds, we cannot say with certainty where each contestant who performed on his team for KO’s originated from.

It now appears that his steal is Lauren Hill from Team Kelly.

Earlier news for archive purposes and those who need a catch-up note.

Well, the news today was Adam Levine is not returning for season 17. Many of his fans will be surprised at this news.

The official Tweet appears below.

Gwen Stefani returns in his place.

Our friend and coach Adam Levine made the decision not to return next season. We’re going to miss Adam, but The Voice is family and family it’s “see you soon,” never “goodbye.”

Gwen Stefani returns with Kelly, John, and Blake on the Voice stage this fall. Join us in welcoming Gwen, and sharing our heartfelt gratitude to Adam!

In reaction – some fans are celebrating Adam’s decision to leave and Gwen will bring back some diversity in the contestant selection process. On the other hand, some claim she is worse than him. Others point to the power of the Shelton Stefani relationship influence over the production.

Who will be the coaches?

Superstars Kelly ClarksonJohn LegendAdam Levine and Blake Shelton are all set to return as coaches for the upcoming 17th season of the four-time Emmy Award-winning musical competition. Carson Daly also returns as host.

In the meantime, the current season continues with the Top 8 performance show on Monday, May 13 (8-10 p.m. ET/PT). The Top 8 artists will perform in front of the coaches for America’s vote, and in a The Voice first, the Top 8 will pair up to perform duets on songs from the Beatles, history’s most celebrated band. The Top 4 finalists will be revealed on the live show airing Tuesday, May 14 (9-10 p.m.).

The Voice 2019 Season 17 News Contestants Judges

The Voice 2019 Season 17 News Contestants Judges

Earlier conjecture!

Blake Shelton and Adam Levine are likely to be renewed because they are the core coaches since the show’s inception. Adam quit on May 24, 2019!

His replacement is Gwen Stefani who

As it seems right now, has a gig in Mexico on 6/22, and returns to her Vegas residency on 7/5

therefore, auditions will probably be taped sometime between those dates.

Her residency has dates from 7/5 to 7/26, so after that should work for the timeframe of contestants returning for battles in August.

She again has residency dates for 10/11 to 11/2, lives wouldn’t begin until after that.

It appears she had a plan B just in case.

While Kelly Clarkson also has signed a new contract with NBC for her talk show and it included this show.

From sources, it is only a short ride between both studios and reports that Kelly has mentioned doing both shows during recent concert performances.

So if those two scenarios prove correct then there is only one chair to fill. Will it be Alicia Keys, John Legend or another person? Standby.

April 3, 2019…

The executive auditions in LA for season 17 are in the next week or two, so keep an eye out for season 16 contestants who didn’t make it or possible others traveling to LA soon.
