The Voice Season 19 is starting next week, and we’ll be introduced to a whole new group of talented contestants. Blind auditions were filmed earlier this year, with a virtual audience.

The good news is that you don’t have to wait until the show premieres to meet some of the contestants. Below, check out ten artists we’re excited to see when the next season of The Voice starts October 19 on NBC.

Meet ‘The Voice’ Season 19 Contestants

Tamara Jade

Tamara is featured in one of the previews for this season. She delivers a powerhouse performance that impresses the coaches. “You want someone that really moves everyone, and that’s you,” Kelly Clarkson tells her. Tamara replies, “From your mouth to God’s ears,” making the coaches laugh.


Ryan Gallagher

In previews, it looks like Ryan is singing opera for his audition, sparking Kelly Clarkson and Blake Shelton to fight over him. Ryan already has an impressive following, with over 30,000 followers on Instagram.

Payge Turner

This singer from Seattle released her first EP this year, called Sleep Walker. Based on her Instagram, she’s become friends with quite a few of her fellow contestants on this season of The Voice.

Taryn Papa

This country singer plays shows in Nashville. She recently shared a tour of her hotel room for The Voice auditions on her Instagram account. It will be interesting to see if she ends up on Team Blake or goes in a different direction.

Eli Zamora

This singer previously competed on the Mexican version of The Voice, so he has experience with the format. Many of his performances on social media are in Spanish, so we wonder if he’ll go with a Spanish song for his blind audition as well.


Olivia Reyes

This young singer just graduated high school last year. She posted on Instagram in February 2019 that it had taken her three years to get back into singing. She added, “fingers crossed I stick to it this time.” And now she’s on The Voice!

Rio Souma

This singer from Detroit already has a few singles and a music video under his belt. “This is something I’ve dreamt of doing my entire life,” he shared on Instagram when announcing his audition for The Voice.

Cami Clune

This actress and singer has posted a number of music covers and even monologues and poem readings on her YouTube channel. “Looking up at my dreams becoming a reality,” she wrote on Instagram after announcing she’ll be on this season.

John Holiday

It looks like Season 19 could be the season of the opera singer on The Voice. It was recently announced on John’s website that he would be making his Metropolitan Opera debut in March 2021.

Ian Flanigan

This singer has been described as a “progressive folk guitar hero.” He recently announced on his Instagram that he and his girlfriend got engaged, so it’s been a pretty big year for him.
