The Voice 21 Contestants Spoilers – Meet the Artists! (Photos, Videos)

The Voice Season 21: Contestant Preview & Guide

Season 21 is one of the most anticipated seasons of The Voice yet, due to the addition of popstar Ariana Grande to the already star-studded panel that consists of Kelly Clarkson, John Legend, and Blake Shelton. It also marks the first time since Season 1 that The Voice will start airing only once in a year. Season 1 aired in spring of 2011 and Season 2 didn’t air until spring of 2012. Similarly, Season 21 will air this September, and Season 22 won’t air until fall of 2022.

This season consists of a very intriguing cast. It is full of groups, powerhouses, and even has a fair share of pop singers for Ariana. Check out some of the cast below in this Season 21 preview and make sure to catch some of them on the premiere of Season 21 on NBC on September 20th.

The Voice 21 “Reveal Day” was August 20. On that day, artists were allowed to reveal “I auditioned” for the show. For a fuller list of contestants and spoilers, check out Idol Forums. (No spoilers in comments, though!)

AS SEEN ON TV

Let’s get started with some familiar faces. These prospective contestants have at some point been on a music show, and some of them have built-in fan bases; some who may still be active viewers of these shows which could help when voting starts if any of them are to make it that far.

A post shared by Hailey Green (@haileygreenmusicofficial)

The southern rock-tinged country singer from Mississippi makes a return to The Voice stage. Hailey auditioned a year ago as a 14-year-old. She was a bit green at the time (no pun intended), and the coaches told her to come back as they saw potential in her raspy voice. Her style is polarizing especially for her age, so it’ll be interesting to see how she does this time around.

In my mind, Jeremy is the most intriguing out of this group as he made it deep into a mega-talented season of American Idol. He was a wildcard and placed 13th on Season 11 of American Idol. At the time, he struggled with some pitch issues, but he was only 19 years old then and was incredible at emoting for his age and had a huge moment with “I Know You Won’t” by Carrie Underwood. 10 years later, the versatile worship leader and singer from Florida has polished his vocal talent and continues to wear his heart on his sleeve.

Raquel is another American Idol alum from Florida, but hopefully this time around, she will get more airtime as it felt like we never got to know her during her time on Idol. She was on Season 17 which occurred about 2.5 years ago and was cut during the Top 20 round. She often sang loungey type music on Idol that was a mix of jazz and r & b. That style will probably suit The Voice more ,as people won’t use the “her style is dated” critique as much. Her runs kind of intrigued me on Idol, but I’m sure a few years has benefited her vocal control, as sometimes they came across as too much.

Katherine (nickname KK) Ann Mohler appeared on AGT as a member of the group One Voice, also known as, Briarcrest’s One Voice. She may have one of my favorite voices of the season as well as my favorite pre-season cover of “Islands” by Sara Bareilles. She is a perfect mix of pop, Christian contemporary music, and a little bit of soul. She also was the first contestant spotted in a promo of the season, sporting a bright pink top; the promo has since been removed. I can’t wait to see Katherine Anne on the big stage.

Carson is a 16-year-old, so he also could be in the “prodigy” category, as he is exactly that. He’s been performing for years. He was on Little Big Shots where he sang and played the fiddle. He’s made appearances on the CMAs and the Grand Ole Opry. He’s also got a decent sized fan base on Tik Tok with 14.5K followers. He’s got a great tone for modern country with enough soul and experience in bluegrass to also please the more traditional country fans. And he’s versatile enough to take on pop music as displayed on his Tik Tok. I love the little pop of rasp in his voice, and his versatility could take him far.

Jonathan is an R&B/gospel singer who appeared on I Can See Your Voice. He has one of the best covers of Andra Day’s “Rise Up” and I’m usually harsh about covers of that song because it has been done so often. He isn’t the most original singer, but he does have a big voice with very good control over his runs. And his pitch is so good, it’s like having built-in autotune. I’m not sure if he’s unique enough to stand out, but his vocals may very well take him far on the show.

Note: there isn’t an individual video of Jonathan’s performance, but he was on Season 1, Episode 5

Sister Trio made up of Kaitlynn and Kyla Keller as well as Chelsea Cooper sings a mixture of R&B and pop music. They appeared on Nickelodeon’s America’s Most Musical Family. Their solos aren’t what makes them stand out to me. Their harmonies sound tight as a group and when the three of them sing together, it sounds like a bigger group. I’m not sure if they stand out next to the fellow groups (see groups section), but I think that Coach Ariana Grande would suit this group as they sound very pop-centric with a slight gospel influence

Wendy Moten had a hit with “Come In Out of the Rain” in 1992. It charted at 55 in the US and charted in several countries. At the time, she drew comparisons to Whitney Houston. And who knows, had this hit come sooner, maybe Wendy would’ve have become a bigger star. She may just be the “plantiest” act we have seen. Yes, we’ve had our share of plants like Cassadee Pope, Christina Grimmie (rest in peace), and E.G. Daily. Will The Voice’s audience vote for a 55-year-old? I didn’t think so until I saw Wendy. I think she could very well be our winner. She sings country music as well. She was a backing vocalist for Faith Hill, Tim McGraw, Martina McBride, and a lead vocalist for Vince Gill.

The Joy Reunion is a country trio from Southern California that is rooted in worship. According to their website, two of the members, Gentry Monreal and Robert Easley have played together in church for 20 years, and the third member, Neil Morrison started playing in 2008. This group wasn’t founded until 2017. What stands out about this trio? Female lead vocalist Gentry Monreal sounds like a professional country vocalist. She gives off shades of Hillary Scott. The other members can hold their own as well.

Father/son duo Jim and Sasha will most likely be an emotional audition. Sasha is transgender, and I’m sure this audition will be a tale of acceptance. It’s rather rare that a parent auditions with their child. I think the mother/daughters group Worth the Wait was the first example of this. Sasha has the biggest following out of anyone on Tik Tok this season with 567.6K followers. My guess is that this duo will sing folk music as they both have lovely folk tones. Their harmonies are what stands out just from this single clip I found of them. I’m excited to see more of Jim and Sasha singing together.

My favorite group of the season is sibling trio, Girl Named Tom. Like Joy Reunion, everyone can hold their own (Becca, Caleb, Joshua) vocally. The only difference is, lead vocalist, Becca Liechty is one to watch out for. She’s one of my favorite voices of this season, and I think even if she was solo, she would go far. This trio has tight harmonies, is versatile as they can sing folk, pop, and country. I have a good feeling about this trio. They are one of my favorites this season.

Another sibling-based group is this duo, The Cunningham Sisters, made up of Macie and Marie Cunningham. These siblings remind me of a more polished Hello Sunday. They have a somewhat gospel vibe mixed in with pop and R&B music. Similar to KCK3, I don’t think they stand out as lead vocalists, but Macie and Marie’s harmonies are gorgeous and are what could take these two far. The duo have been performing since a young age and are still quite young. Macie was 15 at the time of their first audition and Marie was 13. They will only grow from here.

She knows how to use the little imperfections and breaks in her voice to create beautiful moments in her songs. She’s one of the best teens to audition since Brynn Cartelli based on her stuff online.

I’m not sure how she’ll do as jazz singers don’t tend to go far on this show.

In a season without a lot of traditional country singers, Peedy could do well. He is a bit raw with a lack of range, but his tone is very easy to listen to. He also has some theater experience at his high school, so he’s used to the stage.

He’s got an alternative vibe that I totally dig, and his tone is one that gives chills. He can take on pop, rock, and folk, including both classics and current tunes. But his spin on songs is always fresh. One of his downfalls could be that he is very raw vocally. His enunciation is a little rough around the edges, but his tone is one of the best of the entire season. I think if he makes it far, he might get some votes from the teens who watch the show.

Kaitlyn and KJ are good friends, and she’s also a Berklee student from New York. She plays ukulele and does tutorials. She’s a solid songwriter with good control over her runs and she sounds like she would be the perfect fit on Team Ari.

Tommy is probably the closest to rock out of the males this season. I’d classify him more as blues with a little soul. We’ve had singers like him before. He’s pretty polished, but nothing sticks out about him that screams that he’ll go far. I do like his Hozier cover that I left below.

Katie is the closest to rock for the females on this season. She doesn’t have a lot of material, but she has this one solid cover of Foy Vance’s Make It Rain. The judges will probably be shocked by her audition, as her voice is ultra-soulful. I love her vibrato. She would sound good singing pop/rock and blues. I’m excited to see what she does if she makes it onto the show.
