A new season of The Voice started this Monday, in honor of the show, PopWrapped decided to share our favorite singers! While fans are ecstatic to see Adam and Blake reunite with Usher and Shakira, everyone at PopWrapped cannot wait to see the new talent that will take part in the Season Six Blind Auditions! We hope that these new contestants would bring the vocal firepower, charisma and showmanship like their predecessors. Without further ado…here are the 20 Voice alums that have made a huge impact on the show. 20. Tony Vincent, Season Two

Tony Vincent was one of the best rockers that this show has ever seen.  From his impeccable Blind Audition to his final intense cover of “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This),” no male rocker has come close to capturing the firepower and intensity of Tony’s artistry. 19. Donna Allen, Season Five While Donna Allen only graced the show for only the Blind Auditions and the Battle Rounds, her vocal performances on “You Are So Beautiful” and “Next to Me” showcased why she has a timeless voice. 18. Kat Robichaud, Season Five Kat Robichaud’s raspy vocals and show-stopping performances brought excitement to The Voice’s fifth season! Her Blind Audition and covers of “You Oughta Know” and “Sail” were some of her best performances. 17. Tony Lucca, Season Two The minute that Tony sang “Trouble,” I knew that there was something about him that made him special.  Despite Christina’s attempts to bring him down, Tony delivered consistent performances like “Baby One More Time” and “Harder to Breathe” that made America fall in love with him. 16. Cody Belew, Season Three

The only artists that I ever saw sass from on Reality TV shows were Adam Lambert and Daniel Joseph Baker.  When Cody Belew first sang “Hard to Handle,” I loved his energy and seeing him grow throughout the season and his “Crazy in Love” performance showed that he has a future in the industry. 15. Nicholas David, Season Three Nicholas David’s “Stand by Me” perfectly showcased why the St. Paul native was crowned the third season’s resident blue-eyed soul man. His covers of “Lean on Me” and “What’s Goin’ On” made everyone think of life’s bigger picture and how we could help people less fortunate than ourselves. 14. Jeff Jenkins, Season One Jeff Jenkins was the show’s first country artist that I enjoyed listening to.  He was the perfect storyteller and his covers of “Bless the Broken Road,” “Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me” and “Jesus Take the Wheel” gave audience members chills. 13. Matthew Schuler, Season Five

Nine seconds! That is how long it took Matthew Schuler to convince all four judges that he belonged in the competition.  From his electrifying cover of “Cough Syrup” to  his show-stopping performances of “Wrecking Ball” and “Hallelujah,” Matthew Schuler became one of Team Christina’s premiere male vocalists and gathered a huge fan following. 12. Jamar Rogers, Season Two Three seasons before Matthew stormed the stage, Team CeeLo’s Jamar Rogers blazed a trail for both alternative and Indie rockers to appear on the show! His versions of “Seven Nation Army,” “Are You Gonna Go My Way” and “It’s My Life” remain some of the cornerstone performances from the show’s sophomore season. 11. Michelle Chamuel, Season Four

Team Usher’s Season Four finalist wraps up day one of the countdown. Her undeniable voice and stage presence made her a fan-favorite contestant since she covered “I Kissed A Girl.”  But it was her renditions of “True Colors,” “Grenade” and “Time After Time” that put her in the show’s Hall of Fame. 10. Midas Whale, Season Four

Jon Peter Lewis and Ryan Hayes brought a new kind of sound to The Voice’s fourth season: Folk rock. The Utah duo blew all four judges away with their cover of Johnny Cash’s “Folsom Prison Blues” and teamed up with Patrick Dodd in one of the season’s best battles when they tackled the King’s “Burning Love.” While they were eliminated in the Knockouts, Midas Whale will go down in Voice history as one of the best duos that has ever participated on The Voice. 9. Kim Yarbrough, Season Two From the first few notes of “Tell Me Something Good,” I knew that Kim Yarbrough cemented her place as the sophomore season’s resident powerhouse. Every time, she hit the stage…Kim showcased her impeccable vocals as she tackled some of today’s biggest songs: “No More Drama,” “Rolling in the Deep” & “Spotlight.” She also showcased that anyone could bring their dreams to life. 8. Dia Frampton, Season One

Before Cassadee Pope and Danielle Bradbery made their respective appearances on the show, Dia Frampton was the first girl to win the “God Gave Me You” singer’s heart.  Since she performed “Bubbly” on the show, her fanbase grew due to her incredible personality and her stunning vocals on “Heartless” and “Losing My Religion.” I also strongly believe that Dia was also the show’s first breakout artist. 7. Amber Carrington, Season Four The Voice’s fourth season showcased the battle of future country starlets. However, the starlet that shined the brightest was Team Adam’s Amber Carrington.  I was amongst the countless fans that loved following Amber’s journey.  Her best vocal performances on the show: “Stay,” “Skyfall” and “I Remember You” are definite lock-ins for potential Voice Hall of Fame entries. I hope we get to hear new music from her soon. 6. Will Champlin, Season Five

Little did Will Champlin know when he first auditioned with “Not Over You,” he would exit the competition as the true people’s champion.  Despite losing both his Battle and Knockout Rounds, he took those learning experiences and infused them in home-run performances such as “At Last” and “Carry On.” Because of his superb vocals and fierce determination, I think that Will was Adam’s best male contestant from the first five seasons. 5. Tessanne Chin, Season Five Our recently crowned champion could be the best winner The Voice has ever discovered.  Since her show-stopping Blind Audition, there was no artist that could match her astonishing vocals.  Watch her performances of “Redemption Song,” “Bridge Over Troubled Water” and her victorious “I Have Nothing” and you will see why she could crowned the Queen of the Voice Champions. 4. Frenchie Davis, Season One Team Xtina’s resident powerhouse singer blazed a trail for strong vocalists to audition for the show.  She took audiences to church with her interpretations of “I Kissed A Girl,” “When Love Takes Over” and “Like A Prayer.” She will always be remembered as the most empowering contestant in the show’s first five seasons. 3. Chris Mann, Season Two

If future contestants need a guide on how to successfully make it to the finale, they should watch Chris Mann’s performances.  Since his Blind Audition, Chris showed that classical crossover singers can not only succeed on this show, but can defy expectations with their song choices such as “Viva La Vida” and “You Raise Me Up.” 2. Amanda Brown, Season Three A lot of fans have voiced on the Internet that Amanda Brown should have won the show’s third season. The Team Adam superstar delivered outstanding performances that ranged from amazing showstoppers including “Dream On” and “Here I Go Again” to emotional reflection pieces like “Stars.” But Amanda was not the first female rocker to set the standard…. 1. Juliet Simms, Season Two

As CeeLo heads into the sunset, he left a legacy of introducing Americans to incredible talent.  One of his best discoveries was Juliet Simms! I have never seen an artists sing with so much conviction that oozed out so much…vocal sexiness.  Juliet’s outstanding performances of “Oh! Darling,” “Roxanne” and “It’s A Man’s World” are Voice Hall of Fame material and are why she is the best new artist that the Voice discovered!
