(Spoiler alert: Please do not read on if you haven’t watched Tuesday’s finale of “The Voice”)
“The Voice” crowned its Season 12 winner during Tuesday’s finale as the NBC competition show’s most recent run came to an end.
Four singers were still in the mix ahead of the big episode: Jesse Larson of Adam Levine’s team, Lauren Duski and Aliyah Moulden from Blake Shelton’s squad and Chris Blue from Alicia Keys’ group. (Gwen Stefani’s singers had all previously been eliminated.)
In the end, only one contestant was left standing, and the winner was Blue! Duski took second, Moulden landed in third and Larson was fourth. This marked Keys’ first-ever victory in her second season as coach.
The finale featured performances from Miley Cyrus, Jennifer Hudson, Chris Stapleton, Zedd and Alessia Cara. Hudson and Cyrus are both signed on to coach Season 13, which launches in the fall. Cyrus performed “Malibu,” while Hudson sang “Remember Me.”
As always, the highlights included a bunch of great duets. Larson sang “Shining Star” with former “Voice” coach CeeLo Green, while Moulden and Cara belted out “Scars to Your Beautiful.” Duski and Little Big Town teamed up for “Better Man,” and former coach Usher performed “Everybody Hurts” with Blue.
