‘The Voice’ Coaches: Which Coach Has the Most Grammy Wins?
The Voice coaches are a big part of the appeal to viewers because the show has beloved singers helping more struggling vocalists. Throughout the seasons, they have gotten singers from pretty much every genre that have been wildly successful. But which ones have the most Grammy wins under their belt?
We decided to find out! Here are all 13 of the coaches from every season ranked from least number of Grammy wins and nominations to the most.
13. Miley Cyrus 0 wins 1 nomination
The former Disney star was one of the youngest to coach on the reality show in Season 11. The last person standing on her team that season was Ali Caldwell who lost to Team Blake’s Sundance Head. Miley Cyrus tried again in Season 13 and that ended with her having Brooke Simpson, who lost to Chloe Kohanski on Team Blake.
So far Miley Cyrus hasn’t won a season on The Voice or a Grammy Award. The one time she was nominated was for Best Pop Vocal Album with Bangerz, which was a very different image from her earlier career. She followed up that album with albums Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz and Younger Now. Neither got any love from the Recording Academy.
She still came back to perform at the award show with Elton John in 2018. The two performed “Tiny Dancer” together, which excited many fans. She later thanked the icon on social media for the opportunity with “Sir Elton John, I can’t thank you enough for giving me the honor of performing with you tonight at The Grammys!”
The young singer still has plenty of time to win an award. Perhaps after she does, she’ll make another return to the competition show.
12. Blake Shelton 0 wins 7 nominations
This just shows that Grammy wins don’t mean much when it comes to winning the singing competition. Blake Shelton leads in wins for the show with six winning seasons. He doesn’t have a Grammy yet, but he has certainly been nominated.
He was nominated seven times. He was nominated for his solo performances of “Mine Would Be You,” “Over,” “Honey Bee.” His albums Red River Blue and Based On A True Story were nominated for Best Country Album. He was also nominated for Best Country Collaboration With Vocals for “Hillbilly Bone.” His last nomination was for Best Country Duo/Group Performance with “Lonely Tonight” in 2015.
11. Jennifer Hudson 2 wins 6 nominations
The American Idol alum moved on to win Best R&B Album for her self-titled album in 2008. She followed that up with winning Best Musical Theater Album for The Color Purple. She is also one of the few coaches to have an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress in Dreamgirls.
10. Shakira 3 wins 6 nominations
The artist is one of the richest coaches on the show, but she doesn’t have as many Grammy Awards. Shakira’s first win was back in 2000 for Best Latin Pop Album for Shakira – MTV Unplugged. In 2005 she won Best Latin Rock/Alternative Album for Fijación Oral Vol. 1. Her last win was Best Latin Pop Album for El Dorado.

6. Christina Aguilera 5 wins 18 nominations
When the vocal powerhouse started on the show and she was one of the leaders when it comes to Grammy wins.

Her last two wins were for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for “Ain’t No Other Man” and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance with “Say Something.”

He also won Best Urban/Alternative Performance for “F*ck You” and “Crazy.” His album, St. Elsewhere also won Best Alternative Music Album.
