The Voice concluded its 10th season on May 24, Tuesday, and a new winner has been crowned.
The four acts vying for the winner’s title were Adam Wakefield – team Shelton, Laith Al-Saadi – team Adam, Hannah Huston – team Pharell, and Alisan Porter – team Christina.
The finale featured some amazing performances by Sia, Little Big Town, Zayne Malik and Ariana Grande. Blake Shelton even performed a song from his new album. Then the duets featuring the final four wrapped up the show. Hannah Huston sang with Ceelo Green, Adam Wakefield performed alongside Alison Krauss, Alisan Porter shared the stage with Jennifer Nettles, and then Al-Saadi teamed up with icon Joe Walsh.
In the end, Porter claimed the victory, with Wakefield in second, Huston taking third, and Al-Saadi landing fourth. Porter’s win was special for many reasons, but one that stands out is that this is the first time a female coach’s protege has won. Blake Shelton has had 4 wins, Adam Levine 3 wins, Will Pharell and Usher each have coached a winner, but none of the ladies have had the same success.
“I can’t believe it’s over,” Porter expressed. “I’m just in awe that I made it all the way here, and that we’re done now. So it’s just crazy and awesome.”
The grand winner expressed heartfelt gratitude as she praised her coach, “I love her to death, and she just embodies perfection vocally, and I aspire so much just to be able to command a stage like her and sing like that. . . We have a really really great relationship, and I’m just super, super blessed to have chosen her.”
“I’m just so grateful right now,” Porter went on. “It’s just been an amazing journey.”
