The Voice is one my favorite shows on TV.  Sure, there are a lot of talent shows on these days, but it’s the coaches that make this one different.  There have been 11 coaches over the 14 seasons it has been on the air.

Here are my fave five:

5.  Gwen Stefani

I love watching Gwen and Blake together.  She’s so sweet and glamorous.  He’s very much a cowboy.  Watching them coach at the same time is cute.

4. Kelly Clarkson

Kelly has a heart of pure gold.  She shows her passion for music and her love for the contestants– even when they aren’t on her team.

3. Alicia Keys

Alicia has a very old soul.  She has a depth to her that shows as she coaches her team.  I love listening to her words of wisdom.

2 & 1  Adam & Blake

I couldn’t separate these two.  Blake can coach without Gwen.  Gwen would be able to coach without Blake.  However, what makes this show is the chemistry between Blake and Adam.  Their constant bickering is hilarious.  I like that it feels like teasing and not hatred, so it’s a light and fun environment, instead of hostile.  If one left the show, it would be a completely different show, and possibly not worth watching.
