Last night’s episode of The Voice paid homage to the most memorable blind auditions so far, from the power-prowess Tessanne Chin, to the ethereal Holly Henry, to the rockabilly James Wolpert, and more. We saw the judges in various stages of cutesy-cheeky backstage banter, including a ‘how we first met’ session with Carson at the “coach compound.” And we checked in on past winners Cassadee Pope (with her video for “Wasting All These Tears”) and Danielle Bradbery (who performed new single “Heart of Dixie”).

Here are the final rosters:

TEAM ADAM boasts big voices like early standout Tessanne from episode two

-Donna Allen, Nic Hawk, James Wolpert, Barry Black, Tessanne Chin, Justin Blake, Preston Pohl, Ashley DuBose, James Irwin, Will Champlin, Grey, Matt Cermanski

TEAM BLAKE is anchored by country crooners, but is rounded out by unexpected voices like Sam Cerniglia who wowed the judges during the penultimate blind audition

-Shelbie Z, Holly Henry, Austin Jenckes, E.G. Daily, Cilla Chan, Monika Leigh, Ray Boudreaux, Sam Cerniglia, Emily Randolph, Justin Chain, Brian Pounds, and Brandon Chase

TEAM CEELO has one of the most eclectic pools of talent, starting with his first acquisition of rocker Kat Robichaud from the season premiere

-Kat Robichaud, Caroline Pennell, Jonny Gray, Cole Vosbury, Anthony Paul, George Horga Jr., Juhi, R. Anthony, Keaira LaShae, Lupe Carroll, Shawn Smith, and Tamara Chaunice

TEAM CHRISTINA has a few males, but she sticks to her strong suit of powerhouse divas like young Timyra-Joi from episode three

-Josh Logan, Matthew Schuler, Jacquie Lee, Destinee Quinn, Briana Cuoco, Jacob Poole, Lina Gaudenzi, Timyra-Joi, Amber Nicole, Olivia Henken, Stephanie Anne Johnson, and Michael Lynch

Who do you think has built the best team so far? Did they make the right final acquisitions on Monday night? And who do you think is the single best singer? Sound off in the comments.
