The Voice has seen a wide array of talent over the years! Not only that, but judges have also come and gone, including big names such as Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkson, John Legend, and Nick Jonas.
The Voice became a major fan favorite when it first debuted in April 2011, crowning Javier Colon the very first winner with coach Adam Levine by his side. With two studio albums to his name since his win, Javier is just one winner who went on to pave their way in the music industry. We’re looking back on the other winners and what they’re up to now!

In 2023, the season 24 winner was announced to be Huntley, Niall Horan‘s contestant, whereas previous winners were Gina Miles of season 23, Bryce Leatherwood of season 22, Girl Named Tom of season 21 and Cam Anthony of season 20.
Season 19 ended with Carter Rubin being crowned the new winner of The Voice with coach Gwen Stefani. Carter made history as the youngest male winner of the show at just 15 years old. When Hollywood Life spoke exclusively with Carter after his big win, he revealed that he was already thinking about “possible albums.” He added, “I have a few songs I am working on, and I do want to get in the studio one day and record them. Once COVID is over, I want to perform to a live audience.” He also revealed he has dreams of acting in the future.
“If I was on Broadway, I would not complain. I definitely love theater and acting in general. I would love to be in a film one day. That would be a huge dream of mine,” Carter told Hollywood Life.

Team Blake’s Todd Tilghman was the show’s season 18 champion. He was announced as the winner virtually in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Todd recently dropped his new single “In A Heartache” on Valentine’s Day.
Season 17 winner Jake Hoot still has a lot of time to cultivate his success since winning season 17 of The Voice. The crooner won with the help of his coach, Kelly, and since then has been ready to hit the ground running and working on his own music. He just released his new single “I Would’ve Loved You” featuring Kelly! They dropped their music video for the song in Feb. 2021. Jake also released his EP, Love Out Of Time, in January 2021.
Although there are over 20 winners from the show, it’s incredible to see just how drastically their have changed! From working in obscurity and keeping their hope alive to skyrocketing to fame, we cannot wait to see what else is in store for these champions! But there are so many more where these aforementioned talents came from.
