With the departure of Adam Levine last season, Blake Shelton is the only remaining original coach of The Voice. He has the most wins to his name by a wide margin at six total, but he hasn’t won since season 13.

For season 17, his team is shaping up to be pretty solid, with one four-chair auditionee and several three-chair earners. His team advisor, Darius Rucker, is a perfect mentor for aspiring country singers because he successfully switched over from mainstream to country.

Before the last Battle Round episode airs, here’s everything you need to know about Team Blake Shelton so far.
