When Ariana Grande joined The Voice Season 21, a lot of fans worried that her super fans would push her singers to the win, whether they deserved it or not.
It didn’t happen.
Instead, Kelly Clarkson went to the finals and won her fourth crown in her eighth season with Girl Named Tom.
Meanwhile, Blake Shelton had more singers than anyone heading into the semi-finals.
John Legend even had a singer in the finals with a real chance to win.
However, Ariana Grande had no one in the finals at all, despite one of the finalists starting out on her team before she lost them in a steal.
Here is a look at all of Ariana Grande’s singers this season, ranked.
Sophia Bromberg came into the Blind Auditions and impressed three coaches with her rendition of Conan Gray’s Heather.
