And that’s it! Another great season of NBC’s The Voice is in the books. Before the viewing audience, along with host Carson Daly and coaches Kelly Clarkson, Nick Jonas, John Legend and Blake Shelton learned who America had picked as the winner, fans were treated to a look back at the previous nights performances from the Top 5 — Thunderstorm Artis, CammWess, Toneisha Harris, Micah Iverson and Todd Tilghman.
Of course, due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the show wasn’t on the traditional Voice stage, but instead came from 21 feeds of live video from across the country. And in addition to learning who the season 18 winner would be, star-studded performances throughout the night were dedicated to essential and front line workers who have continued to work diligently to preserve the health and well-being of Americans. In addition, Microsoft made a donation to Feeding America.
The first performance of the night belonged to the coaches, the Top 9 contestants, CeeLo Green, Bebe Rexha and Shakira who tackled the Pete Townshend classic, “Let My Love Open the Door.” But the music didn’t stop there.
