‘The Voice’ Season 13 Crowns Its Champion With An All-Star Cast
The Voice's 13th season concluded last night as some of music's biggest names helped celebrate the accomplishments of the season.
The Pre-Results Performances
Top Eight semifinalists Adam Cunningham and Keisha Renae teamed up with Bebe Rexha, and they sang Rexha's collaboration with Florida Georgia Line: "Meant To Be." Both Cunningham and Renae showcased why they made it to the semifinals. The partnership was a great way to start off the finale.
Former Team Alicia advisor Charlie Puth performed his latest single: "How Long." Puth continued to show why he is one of the hottest artists that have been taking over the Top 40 radio charts. Adam Levine joined him on electric guitar and the duo made 'Voice' angels before they left the stage.
Addison Agen joined one of her music heroes on stage for a gorgeous duet. Agen teamed with nine-time Grammy-winning artist Norah Jones on her classic "Don't Know Why." The ladies had beautiful harmonies and brought jazz music to the Universal Studios Hollywood soundstage. Hopefully, Jones will play an instrumental part in helping Agen establishing a career after the show.
Team Jennifer's Noah Mac identified himself this season as an indie rocker. While his fans fought passionately for the Instant Save, he was eliminated at the end of the Top 8 results show. Mac joined forces with Bastille, and they performed "World Gone Mad." Mac's vocals brilliantly meshed with the band's lead vocalist Dan Smith and they did an incredible job of performing the track.
Next season, the first American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson will join The Voice as a coach. Clarkson, who previously served as a Knockout Round advisor for all of the coaches, debuted her latest single: "Medicine" during the finale. All of the artists that will have Clarkson as a coach next season are in for a treat.
As Clarkson left the stage, Season 12 champion Chris Blue returned to premiere his new song: "Blue Blood Blues." Blue was introduced by his coach and manager, Alicia Keys, and he instantly transported the Universal Studios Hollywood soundstage to the Old West. Some notes would remind the audience of Idol alum Joshua Ledet. Hopefully, the Blue and Keys partnership will inspire other coaches to take a more proactive approach to working with their artists after the show.
Team Miley's last woman standing, Brooke Simpson, performed a unique duet with singer-songwriter Sia. The women delivered an inspiring vocal performance of Sia's hit with David Guetta: "Titanium." As the women left the stage, fan-favorite Chris Weaver returned to the show to perform a cover of "Bang Bang." Weaver kicked off the season with his interpretation of Otis Redding's "Try A Little Tenderness." Weaver and his fellow drag performers delivered a "Cell Block Tango" version of the Jessie J hit. Speaking of Jessie J, the former Voice UK and Voice Australia coach joined the crew for an epic finale.
For the past few weeks, Chloe Kohanski has dominated the competition with her rock performances such as "Call Me" and "Total Eclipse of the Heart." Kohanski was beyond speechless when Blake Shelton told her that she would be performing with one of her rock heroes: music legend Billy Idol. Kohanski and Idol put on a show as they sang Idol's 1982 hit: "White Wedding."
The four finalists were surprised by Daly, Miley Cyrus, and Jennifer Hudson as they handed keys to a brand new Toyota Corolla. As the finalists left the stage, Demi Lovato visited the show to perform the title track of her hit album: "Tell Me You Love Me." Lovato delivered an epic performance that featured fantastic vocals.
Davon Fleming hit a vocal high note when he was saved during the second to last Instant Save performance. Fleming returned to the stage and performed "Not My Ex" with Jessie J and the duo had great vocal chemistry. The artist collaborations came to a conclusion when Red Marlow joined forces with country music icon Vince Gill. The duo performed "When I Call Your Name" and satisfied the country music fans all across the United States.
