We have all the details about The Voice contestants, but if you’re looking for information on The Voice winners for 2016, you’ll just have to wait and see!

Here’s everything you need to know about The Voice 2016 contestants and their four teams.

Team Adam

Maroon 5 front man and veteran The Voice coach, Adam Levine had quite a tough time getting his pick of contestants, aside from his “supposed” ongoing feud with Miley Cyrus outside of The Voice. According to sources, the two butt heads off camera, as well. However, Levine has scored some amazing talent and he does have a very strong team, who he plans to coach into winners. His team comprises of Riley Elmore, Andrew DeMuro (who has performed with Billy Joel), Brendan Fletcher, JSOUL, Simone Gundy, Ponciano Seoane, Bindi Liebowitz and New York Conservatory alum/birthday party performer, Elia Esparza. Returning from season 10, is Nolan Neal, a young father who also has a songwriting career. Johnny Rez, who has recovered from alcoholism (thanks to music) is also joining Levine’s team. Natasha Bure, who is the daughter of Candace Cameron from Full House (that starred John Stamos, Bob Saget, and the Olsen twins) also gained a spot on Levine’s team. Lastly, Billy Gillman (who had released his own country album when he was 12 years-old) was also selected to join Team Adam. Gillman had once been nominated for a Grammy, but his label dropped him when he was discovered to be gay.

Team Blake

Popular country singer, Blake Shelton has been on The Voice since its inception and has been a winning coach four times. This season, he hopes to make it a fifth. This time around, he’s filled his team with more diverse singers, many with southern style or very different sounding voices. Sundance Head from Texas is the son of Roy Head, who was in the ‘60s country band, The Traits. Dana Harper has an enthusiastic cheerleader in the form of her dad, NBA player Derek Harper. 15-year-old Gabe Broussard is the youngest contestant and 57-year-old Dan Shafer is the oldest this season. Also on Shelton’s team is Ethan Tucker, Austin Allsup, Blaine Long, Christian Fermin, athlete-turned-singer Josh Gallagher, Preston James, Tarra Layne, and music teacher, Courtney Harrell, who has written songs for the likes of Ariana Grande and Mary J. Blige.

Team Alicia

In her first stint on The Voice, Alicia Keys hopes to add a trophy as a winning coach to her collection of numerous awards as an artist. The contestants on her team include a gospel-singer named Jason Warrior, a Junior Olympic swimmer named Dave Moisan, Christian Cuevas, Lauren Diaz, Wé McDonald, and Josh Halverson. She also picked up a Broadway singer named Gabriel Violett, former School of Rock singer, Halle Tomlinson, Michael Sanchez, Belle Jewel and Kylie Rothfield. Sisters, Whitney and Shannon are this season’s only duo. At ages 15 and 18, The Voice is the sisters’ attempt at becoming closer, after they drifted apart since their parents divorce.

Team Miley

Miley Cyrus had a brief mentoring experiencing on The Voice season 10, but with season 11 she aspires to be the winning coach. Hopefully, the drama between her and the other judges don’t ruin her chances. Joining Team Miley are a group of singers that the teen sensation fought tooth and nail for. Courtnie Ramirez, Ali Caldwell, Sa’Rayah, Sophia Urista, Karlee Metzger, Lane Mack, Darby Walker, half native-American Khaliya Kimberlie, Maye Thomas and pageant-girl, Charity Bowden have all secured a spot on Miley’s team. Miley also acquired YouTube star, Josette Diaz, who has always been a fan of her coach, even before The Voice. Aaron Gibson is another talent Cyrus scored, and he first performed at open mic nights on his father’s encouragement. He later got a business degree and joined the corporate world, but couldn’t contain his musical passion.

The Voice airs every Monday and Tuesday at 8:00 p.m. EST on NBC. Don’t miss the next episode tonight, where the 48 contestants will sing their hearts out!
