Tonight! The Voice: Season 11 was crowned!
Did your favorite artist win?
Read on to find out.
After Adam paid homage to Ferris Buehler’s Day-Off, which included a cameo by Ben Stein, Stevie Wonder, Ariana Grande, and the Season 11 Top 12 kicked off the Season 11 finale with their hit single, “Faith,” from the upcoming film: Sing.
For his final time on The Voice stage, Josh Gallagher invited Austin Allsup and Brendan Fletcher to perform Jason Aldean’s “My Kind of Party.” The trio electrified the stage with an impressive country rock cover. As the trio left the stage, it was time for the first celebrity duet of the night. That honor went to We and John Legend, who performed “Love Me Now.” If they would have recorded this on iTunes, I would promptly buy this track. I was dancing all around my apartment during their duet!
After checking in with Miley Cyrus, the show paid homage to the fast-talking coach, which included a cameo from her godmother, the Queen of Country Music: Dolly Parton! Next, Sting performed “I Can’t Stop Thinking About You.” It was an excellent performance, but I wished that some of the Top 12 could have played with him. It would have been great to hear Ali, Austin, Brendan, and Sa’Rayah perform with the “Fields of Gold” singer-songwriter.
Billy Gilman brought back four of Season 11’s most powerful voices: Christian Cuevas, Ali Caldwell, Sa’Rayah, and Courtney Harrell. The quintet performed Tina Turner’s “Proud Mary.” This was probably one of the best bring back performances from the past five seasons. It had fire, passion, excitement and brilliant vocals. I hope that Tina Turner gets a copy of this performance because she would be proud of the quintet!
The show invited Sundance’s idols, rock legends KISS, to perform with the Team Blake artist! The group performed KISS’s “Detroit Rock City” and “Rock N’ Roll All Nite” which had shades of the group’s 2009 electrifying collaboration with Adam Lambert seven years ago on the American Idol finale!
After teasing Season 12, the Top Four reflected on recorded their original singles. In addition, Carson surprised them with a state of the art professional studio! Billy rushed back on stage to join Kelly Clarkson for her single from The Hamilton Mixtape: “It’s Quiet Uptown.” Their vocals blended well together and gave me chills.
Sundance concluded the Bring Back segment by reuniting his friends on Team Blake: Austin Allsup and Courtney Harrell! The trio performed Cole Swindell’s “Ain’t Worth the Whiskey.” The trio’s harmonies were fantastic and raised the Universal Studios Hollywood soundstage’s roof. I hope that their kids watched this and said that their folks can rock and roll!
After Bruno Mars performed “24 Karat Magic ,” it was time for Carson Daly to reveal the results!
In fourth place, Team Adam’s Josh Gallagher.
In third place, Team Alicia’s We McDonald.
That left, Sundance Head & Billy Gilman as this season’s Top Two.
However, the winner of Season 11 was SUNDANCE HEAD!
Congrats, Sundance! See everyone next season for Voice: Season 12!
