BWW Recap: THE VOICE - The WINNER is REVEALED!
Tonight is The Voice finale night, full of performances from the contestants, past and the three finalists, and performers including OneRepublic, Paramore, and Lady Gaga.
The show started off with the Top 20 finalists singing Tonight Is The Night by Outasight. It was great to see the Top 20 vocalists on the stage again.
For Jacquie's bring back performance, she brought back Matthew Schuler, Cole Vosbury, James Wolpert, and Caroline Pennell to sing Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody." This song was amazingly sung by the five, and showed the range of all of the singers.
Then Tessanne got to sing with her personal hero, Celine Dion, and got to show off some of that world-class singer that everyone calls her. She certainly delivered, and gave an amazing performance.
OneRepublic sang their new single "I Lived" from their album Native. Ryan Tedder helped write the song that will be the winner's first single, and I can't think of any one better.
Ray Bourdeaux, Josh Logan, Preston Pohl, Matthew Schuler, and Nic Hawk came together to sing Bruno Mars' "Treasure". I think these guys may have a chance to form a boyband! The Voice's first boyband?
For Will's bring back performance, he brought back Jonny Gray, Caroline Pennell, Cole Vosbury, and Austin Jenckes. The five sang "Wagon Wheel" by Darius Rucker, a country and soulful song that showed off all of the singers' strong suits. I think I'm all for The Voice groups forming!
Next up, Jacquie Lee sang with Paramore. This was a great contemporary performance for Jacquie, something I've really wanted to see throughout the competition.
Stephanie Anne Johnson, Shelbie Z, Kat Robichaud, Tamara Chauniece, Grey, and Amber Nicole sang My Life Would Suck Without You by Kelly Clarkson. It was great to see these girls to come back and sing one of my favorite songs!
Up next was the last Voice Confessionals, where contestants and coaches talked about what winning The Voice meant to them. You can watch it at nbc.com/thevoice
Next, two amazing artists took the stage, Celine Dion and Ne-Yo singing their new single "Incredible". (If I said it was incredible, would that be too punny?) All jokes aside, these two singers are phenomenal vocalists and this collaboration is inspired.
Next Will Champlin sang Avicii's "Wake Me Up" with Aloe Blacc. It was a wonderful performance by one of the breakout artists of 2013.
Next was Tessanne's bring back performance, and she brought back Olivia Wilde, Grey, James Wolpert, and Preston Pohl, singing "Hold On I'm Coming" by Sam and Dave.
The biggest performance of the night was Lady Gaga and Christina Aguilera's collaborative performance, full of the theatrics that Lady Gaga is known for.
Finally it was time to announce the winner of The Voice. In third place was Will Champlin, and the winner of The Voice is......
Congratulations to all of the finalists and look for Season SIX of The Voice on February 24th!!
