The Voice coaches finalized their teams Monday night, and it sounds like the battle to win it all might be epic.

All four coaches nabbed some powerhouse talent during the blind auditions, and all are itching for a win.

But who will emerge as The Voice victor?

Here are our picks for the ones to watch:



Team Adam
Adam Levine dominated the four-chair turn this season, and the result is a team bursting with talent. Tessanne Chin, already a star in her native Jamaica, bowled over all four coaches with her fierce version of Pink's "Try" and is hoping to win over more fans of her nuanced reggae sound. Former Christian rock guitarist Preston Pohl broke out of his genre and had the male coaches slamming their buttons quickly after delivering a polished version of MGMT's "Electric Feel" in a sweet falsetto. Levine's also banking on Ashley DuBose, a single mom/programmer analyst who knocked it out of the park with her version of Rihanna's "Diamonds"



Team Blake
Three-time winner Blake Shelton is hoping to continue his streak this season – and just might have the talent to do it. Holly Henry, a shy 19-year-old pancake waitress from Minneapolis stunned the coaches with her haunting version of Coldplay's "The Scientist." On the other end of the spectrum is E.G. Daily, who found fame in the '80s playing Dottie in Pee Wee's Big Adventure and yearns for a second chance at stardom. If her clean performance of Faith Hill's "Breathe" is any indication, her dream might come true.



Team Christina
Returning coach Christina Aguilera repeatedly told the contestants she is "hungry" for a win this season, and her roster might have what it takes to get her on top. Bagel shop employee Matthew Schuler, 20, showed he's got the goods when he delivered an upbeat, powerful version of Young the Giant's "Cough Syrup" that prompted both Aguilera and Levine to stand on their chairs in adoration. Aguilera also nabbed one of the most talked-about contestants on the show, Briana Cuoco, aka Kaley Cuoco's little sister, who charmed both Aguilera and Cee Lo Green with her version of Lady Gaga's "You and I"



Team Cee Lo
The quirkiest coach on the show arguably racked up the most colorful contestants, who are full of both talent and personality. Kat Robichaud, a full-time musician who tours with her glam rock band "The Design," donned blacked striped pants and a bad-ass attitude to catch the judges' attention with her rocking version of "I Got the Music in Me." In contrast, shy Caroline Pennell wore a modest floral dress to deliver a sweet version of Ellie Goulding's "Anything Could Happen." Meanwhile, boy band member-in-the-making George Horga Jr., 19, had the young female audience members swooning for his version of Bruno Mars's "Treasure."
