The American TV series, The Voice, has been around for more than a decade and has given 21 different winners.

Each year, the show takes place twice. It was started in 2011 and has evolved into one of the most popular talent shows in the history of American TV shows. It is a reality competition television series where four judges guide and refine selected raw talents to take them to the next level in the field of singing.

The show's first season started with a panel of four judges, Christina Aguilera, CeeLo Green, Adam Levine, and Blake Shelton. However, as it has come a long way, the board has seen multiple changes in the coaches as artists like John Legend, Shakira, Usher, Miley Cyrus, and a few others have also sat in the chair.

The four judges select the required number of participants in their team from the audition rounds, where only a few are chosen from a vast mass of people. As the show progresses through different stages set by the hosts, the number of participants gradually decreases as only the competition winners from each round progress through to the next round.

Based on the points given by the judging panel and the accumulation of public votes received, the contestants pass through to the next round. After a series of competitions and analyses, one person gets crowned as the winner of that season of The Voice.

As a champion of a particular season, they get a grand prize of $100,000 and a record deal with Universal Music Group. This opportunity sets them on a new path in their career where they get the chance to get to the top.

He is one of those artists who couldn't take off for an extensive career despite having a solid starting point for marching towards success. Although he released several singles in collaboration with other artists, Kaufman never reached the height he would have expected after the show.

After the show, Josh got engaged in various exhibitions and broadway involvements and eventually faded from the public's eye. His last performance came in 2017 when he sang in a football match event and a few other shows.

Bradbery sang three songs in the finale, two solo songs, Maybe It Was Memphis and Born to Fly, and a duet with coach Shelton on Timber, I'm Falling In Love.

Her exposure through the competition brought her further fame in the industry as she began recording songs with various other artists and released a few singles and extended plays of her own. However, she didn't produce many albums as the lady released her second album, Stages, in 2019, her most recent one.

Although she has remained far from the mainstream music industry for some time now, the woman is still active as a singer. Cassadee casually performs in some local events and has a fortune worth $4 million, as per Celebrity Net Worth.

Since the television show, Paul has released more than five different albums that have been able to make some exposure but are not that successful commercially. His last album, Water, was released in 2019 but was not a significant success.

The singer is still active in music, where he often performs in local shows and nearby events. He lives with his wife, Melissa Paul, and boasts a net worth value of $1 million.

Javier Colon: Winner Of The First Season (2011)

Although winning the competition gave him a record deal with Universal Republic Records, he released only one album with them in 2011.

Colon decided to cancel that agreement in 2012 after not being satisfied with the company's lack of support in promoting his music album. His last album, titled Gravity, came in 2016 in deal with Concord Records.
