NBC's talent competition "The Voice" crowned JOSH KAUFMAN as the season-six champion last night. MTV reports, "Not only did the soulful singer best his competitors, TEAM ADAM’s CHRISTINA GRIMMIE and TEAM BLAKE’s JAKE WORTHINGTON, to land a recording contract with UNIVERSAL MUSIC, but KAUFMAN’s win also marked a first in “Voice” history. Team USHER’s win ended the five-season reign that saw only LEVINE and SHELTON’s artists winning the singing competition."
The show had lots of professional performances, and got underway last night with ONEREPUBLIC singing their newest single “Love Runs Out,” a song that KAUFMAN covered during the competition. JUSTIN MOORE sang “Lettin’ the Night Roll,” and TIM MCGRAW debuted a new song called “City Lights.” Then ED SHEERAN served up to “Sing,” and COLDPLAY rocked “Sky Full of Stars.”
"For their 'Bring Back' performances, WORTHINGTON brought back buddies KAT PERKINS, KRISTEN MERLIN, AUDRA MCLAUGHLIN, MORGAN WALLEN and RYAN MALONEY for a fun-in-the-sun performance of KENNY CHESNEY’s 'Summertime,' while GRIMMIE brought back her BFFs TESS BOYER, BRIA KELLY and JAKE BARKER for LORDE’s 'Team,' and KAUFMAN assembled the soulful T.J. PERKINS, SISAUNDRA LEWIS and STEVIE JO for NICO and VINZ’s 'Am I Wrong?' noted MTV.
One of the night's highlights occured when GRIMMIE and SHEERAN joined to sing “The Fault in Our Stars” track, “All of the Stars.”
