It all comes down to this!
It’s been an incredible season forThe Voice,but only one could be crowned the winner. Wednesday’s finale was a special one, as for the first time in the last seven seasons, all four coaches on the NBC singing competition show had a singer in the finale.
TeamJohn Legend ‘s finalist was Katie Kadan, a colorful Chicago songstress with a big voice and an even bigger personality . For TeamKelly Clarkson, it was Jake Hoot, a country crooner from Tennessee, who consistently topped the most-streamed charts with each new performance. TeamBlake Sheltonwas represented by Ricky Duran, an old-school singer with a soulful voice and some serious guitar skills, and TeamGwen Stefanihad the soulful singer Rose Short, who nearly brought her coach to tears last week with abeautiful renditionof Aretha Franklin’s “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman.”
After an epic night filled with performances by mega-stars The Black Eyed Peas, J Balvin, Dua Lipa, Jennifer Hudson, Lady Antebellum and more, it was down to the final performances by the rising stars.
Katie was the first contestant to perform alongside Adam Lambert, singing Cher’s “Believe.” Rose was up next singing a breathtaking rendition of “In the Midst of It All” with Yolanda Adams. Ricky was third, performing a sultry version of “Our Love” with Gary Clark Jr. Jake, on his end, took the stage with Little Big Town and perfectly blended in with the country stars to sing “Over Drinking.”
And the winner is: Jake Hoot!
Ricky Duran was the runner-up, followed by Katie Kadan in third and Rose Short in fourth.
That’s a wrap! Expect even more fun and talent on season 728 , which will debut in spring and see Nick Jonasjoining as a coach, alongside Clarkson, Legend and Shelton.
