Top 5 All-Time Best Duos on ‘The Voice’
Over the years, The Voice has always allowed duos to audition for the show. However, very few have been successful and even less have made it far. But when duos are good, they are GOOD!
Here’s a list of our favorite duos throughout Seasons 1-15 of The Voice.
5. Dawn & Hawkes
Dawn & Hawkes brought their fun, folky vibes to Season 6 of The Voice. Adam and Shakira both turned for their cover of “I’ve Just Seen a Face” by The Beatles. They then made it through the Battle Rounds before being eliminated in the Knockouts, when they were matched with Kat Perkins, who went on to make it to the Semifinals. I believe they could’ve made it even further if it wasn’t for that pairing!
4. Whitney & Shannon
Whitney & Shannon joined Season 11 of The Voice after turning all four chairs with their cover of “Landslide.” Their tone was incredible and their harmonies were perfect to build off each other, but not overwhelm each other. Plus, the big note that caused Alicia to turn really sealed the deal in their Blind Audition. The duo joined Team Alicia and made it all the way to the Knockouts.
3. Andi & Alex
This goes without saying I think but Andi & Alex were ROBBED! I remember watching their Blind Audition for the first time and thinking, wow maybe a duo can actually go far again! Their vocals were near perfection and they were so sweet. But that didn’t happen. They joined Team Adam after their flawless Blind Audition. They sailed through the Battle Rounds, but the wheels fell off a little in the Knockouts and they were eliminated.
2. The Morgan Twins
Season 4 was the first time we saw duos actually be a factor on The Voice. And The Morgan Twins kicked that off! They were the first act to audition for Season 4 and they got four chair turns. Their cover of Alicia Keys’ “Fallin'” caused Blake and Usher to turn before the second twin even started! They ended up choosing Team Blake, but were eliminated in the Battle Rounds.
Before we get to our #1 pick, we have to shout out some of these honorable mentions who didn’t quite make the Top 5 list.
HONORABLE MENTION #1: Midas Whale
Continuing the Season 4 trend, Midas Whale turned four chairs with their cover of “Folsom Prison Blues” by Johnny Cash just one episode after The Morgan Twins. Midas Whale was made up of Jon Peter Lewis, who appeared on the third season of American Idol, and his friend Ryan Hayes. They joined Team Adam and made it to the Knockouts.
HONORABLE MENTION #2: OneUp
OneUp was a fun breath of fresh air on Season 15! They were fun and did choreographed dances to each of their performances. OneUp was a gay couple, made up of Adam Bastien & Jerome Bell. Unfortunately, they were eliminated in the Battle Rounds when they went up against Kymberli Joye.
HONORABLE MENTION #3: Alaska & Madi
Alaska & Madi were two Oklahoma teenagers who wanted to sing country music. Their Blind Audition, sung in cowboy boots, proved just that. Their cover of “Barton Hollow” by The Civil Wars turned Blake and Adam’s chairs. The duo was eliminated in the Battle Rounds, where they put on one of the best performances of the season with Audra McLaughlin.
1. The Swon Brothers
Without a doubt the most successful duo in The Voice history is The Swon Brothers. The duo consisted of Colton and Zach Swon, who turned three chairs in their Blind Audition. On Team Blake, they made it all the way to the Finale, finishing in third place. No other duo has ever even gotten to the Live Shows! They went on to sign a record deal with Arista Nashville after their appearance on The Voice.
