Talent-wise, I think this is one of the strongest stable of contestants "The Voice" or any American singing show has ever produced. They are stylistically diverse, devoutly professional (check out my post on "The Voice" singers before they were famous) and altogether lovable.

Don't forget some of the songs we've had to hear battled (Cee-Lo, you're still on probation for making us sit through"I Don't Want To Miss A Thing"). There's only so many spinning cameras, diva-on-diva vocal runs and Cher I can realistically take.
