The Voice winner Sundance Head just revealed that he chose not to vote for himself in the finale!
Head won season 11 of The Voice after receiving the most amount of votes from the American public. But as it turns out, the singer himself wasn't even one of those voters! The country/soul singer revealed this in a new interview with Parade.com, speaking on how he supported one of his fellow finalists instead.
"I didn't think I was going to win because Wé and Billy had so many more thousands of people on social media on all platforms, and I really misjudged the whole process to be honest with you," Head explained. "I thought that the social media criteria, basically, was going to determine the outcome. I was completely wrong."
Gilman has far more followers than Head on Twitter but he finished as the runner-up. McDonald, who is close to Head in followers, finished in third place. Head suggested that Gilman would have success regardless of the outcome, so he decided to throw his votes at McDonald.
"I decided that I was going to get behind Wé because I had spent a lot of time with her and her dad, Mac, who's a wonderful person," Head said. "She was the youngest person on the show with the highest ceiling, so it just made sense to me that if I didn't win I was going to support her. I love Billy, and I know Billy is going to do well, and he would tell you himself that we have a wonderful relationship, but personally I just thought it made more sense for me to support Wé if I wasn't going to win."
Head already has big plans to record his next album, saying in a previous interview with Bustle that he planned on meeting with the label.
"I'm going to meet with the record label, I suppose sometime after Christmas," he said. "My plan, even though my plans hardly ever work out, is to go camping on this trip and pen songs that I really want to write."
