The Voice season 17 is in full swing this fall. John Legend has settled in nicely in what is only his second season coaching, though he did set the bar high last season by winning in his first time on the show. So far, Legend has gathered a solid team together, with three four-chair turn contestants and a fourth who would have had four chairs if Blake Shelton hadn’t blocked Kelly Clarkson from turning around.

As for their musical styles, Legend’s team members really run the gamut, from soulful to eclectic to even a bit country. But no matter the style, they have all benefitted from Usher stepping in as Legend’s, giving them what Legend called “Ph.D.-level advice.”

Before watching the last Battle Round episode, here’s everything you should know about who is still left on Legend’s team.


Max Boyle

This 23-year-old Toledo, Ohio native grew up in a musical family and has been singing his entire life. His audition song was “Wayfaring Stranger” by Ed Sheeran, earning him two chair turns, but Boyle ended up on Team Legend because John blocked Kelly Clarkson from being able to make her case to Max.

In the Battle Rounds, Boyle defeated Matt New on the song “Let Me Love You” by Justin Bieber.

This soulful musician got into music because his parents thought it would help him cope with Asperger’s syndrome, a high-functioning form of autism. He earned two chair turns during his blind audition of “Say You’ll Be There” by the Spice Girls.

At 14 when he auditioned, now 15 years old, Howell is one of the youngest contestants to ever be on The Voice. But don’t let his young age fool you. He wowed the judges with his rendition of the classic “Dream a Little Dream of Me,” which earned him four chairs at his blind audition.

This Chicago songbird got a later musical start than most contestants, not really performing outside of church until she was in her 30s. But she’s killing it at 38 years old, earning four chair turns during her blind audition of Aretha Franklin’s “Baby I Love You.”

In the Battle Rounds, her face-off with Khalea Lynee on “The Boy is Mine” was so good that Legend kept them both; he used his one Battle Round save on the very first battle by keeping Upkins.
