Contestants & Coaches Who Won ‘The Voice’
During the first few seasons of The Voice, the show was still finding its rhythm and introduced a number of coaches, bringing a variety of genres and talented artists to the homes of viewers.
Season 1: Javier Colon, Team Adam
Javier Colon took home the win in season one of The Voice, taking home the win over Casey Weston, who was also on Team Adam.
Season 2: Jermaine Paul, Team Blake
Starting off the rivalry between Adam Levine and Blake Shelton, Jermaine Paul took home the win in season two of The Voice. Paul had previously worked as a backup vocalist, so it’s no surprise he took home the title.
Season 3: Cassadee Pope, Team Blake
Team Blake’s second win came courtesy of Cassadee Pope, who is now one of the most popular winners of The Voice. Pope still releases albums and is a fixture in the music industry.
Season 4: Danielle Bradbery, Team Blake
Danielle Bradbery was Team Blake’s third winner of The Voice, and she was the youngest artist to win the title at just 16 years old.
Season 5: Tessanne Chin, Adam Levine
Tessanne Chin brought the title back to Team Adam after three consecutive seasons with Team Blake, causing their rivalry to heat up even more.
Season 6: Josh Kaufman, Team Usher
Season six was the first season that wasn’t won by either Blake Shelton or Adam Levine, instead going to Team Usher. Usher later returned as a mega mentor for season 19 of the show.
Season 7: Craig Wayne Boyd, Team Blake
Blake Shelton brought the title back home after two seasons away with country singer Craig Wayne Boyd. This marked Shelton’s fourth win of the show.
Season 8: Sawyer Fredericks, Team Pharrell Williams
Season 8 marked the first time Pharrell Williams won as a coach on The Voice with the help of musician Sawyer Fredericks. Fredericks was just 16 years old when he took home the title and he set the iTunes sales record for the series when he was on the show.
Season 9: Jordan Smith, Team Adam Levine
Adam Levine loved Jordan Smith from the time of his first audition, and he brought the title of The Voice back to Team Adam for the third time. Fans love Smith, as his recordings reached the top of the iTunes charts throughout the season.
Season 10: Alisan Porter, Team Christina Aguilera
Alison Porter won the show under the coaching of Christina Aguilera. Porter was an actress before her time on The Voice, and she was the first female to win with a female coach.
Season 11: Sundance Head, Team Blake
Blake Shelton once again won The Voice in season 11, this time with the help of Sundance Head. Shelton beat out new coaches Alicia Keys and Miley Cyrus for his fifth win.
Season 12: Chris Blue, Team Alicia Keys
Alicia Keys took home her first win in season 12 with the help of soul musician Chris Blue. Keys was a coach alongside Levine, Shelton and Gwen Stefani that season.
Season 13: Chloe Kohanski, Team Blake
The title once again went to Blake Shelton in season 13 when he brought singer Chloe Kohanski to the finale and won against coaches Miley Cyrus, Adam Levine, and first-time coach Jennifer Hudson. This marked Team Blake’s sixth win on the show.
Season 14: Brynn Cartelli, Team Kelly
Brynn Cartelli signed on after her blind audition with first-time coach and music superstar Kelly Clarkson, and the decision paid off for the singer. Clarkson beat out Alicia Keys, Blake Shelton and Adam Levine for a win in her first season of the show.
Season 15: Chevel Shepherd, Team Kelly
Team Kelly returned for her second season ready for another win in season 15, and she got what she asked for with the help of singer Chevel Shepherd. There was a fifth coach in season 15, meaning that Clarkson had to beat out more people to take home the win, and she was able to do so.
Season 16: Maelyn Jarmon, Team Legend
John Legend sampled some of Clarkson’s beginner’s luck in his first season on The Voice when he took home the title alongside singer Maelyn Jarmon. Adam Levine left the show following season 16, so Legend won in Levine’s last season.
Season 17: Jake Hoot, Team Kelly
Kelly Clarkson took home her third win with Jake Hoot, who she has since released a duet with. Clarkson beat out coaches Gwen Stefani, Blake Shelton and John Legend for this win.
Season 18: Todd Tilghman, Team Blake
Team Blake once again rose to the top in season 18 with country singer Todd Tilghman. Season 18 was Nick Jonas’s first as a coach, and he came close to winning, though Shelton ultimately beat him out his first time in the coaching chair. This marked Shelton’s seventh win, making him the most successful coach on the show to date.
Season 19: Carter Rubin, Team Gwen
Gwen Stefani once again returned for season 19 of The Voice, and she took home her first win with teen prodigy Carter Rubin, who had been a fan-favorite since his beautiful blind audition. Following the win, Stefani announced she would once again be leaving the show, and Nick Jonas would be making his return in season 20, hoping to take home his first win.
