Blake Shelton did it again. The four-time winning coach has added a fifth “Voice” champion to his resume with country crooner Sundance Head, who was crowned the Season 11 winner on Tuesday night’s finale.
Team Adam Levine’s Billy Gilman was the runner-up, Team Alicia Key’s Wé McDonald came in third and fourth place went to Levine’s Josh Gallagher.
Head, the 37-year-old son of Roy Head, who shot to fame in the late 1960s with the hit “Treat Her Right,” hails from Porter, Texas.
The star-studded “Live Finale” kicked off with a “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” parody skit, starring rival coaches Levine and Shelton before looking back at Monday night’s amazing performances.
With four strong contenders heading into the finale episode, impatient fans were eager to learn which team would emerge victorious. But not before a few more performances.
The top 12 contestants returned for the Finale Part 2 and sang “Faith” from the movie “Sing” along with Stevie Wonder and Ariana Grande.
Gallagher invited Brendan Fletcher and Austin Allsup for his bring-back artists. The trio sang Jason Aldean’s “My Kind of Party.” Gilman assembled a vocal power house with previously-eliminated contestants Sa’Rayah, Courtney Harrell, Ali Caldwell, and Christian Cuevas to sing Tina Turner’s “Proud Mary.”
Meanwhile, McDonald brought back four uniquely different voices, Darby Walker, Brendan Fletcher, Aaran Gibson, for her reunion performance, a rendition of Kanye West’s “Love Locked Down.”
Each finalist also got to sing with one of their idols, and for McDonald, it was John Legend. The pair gave a soulful performance of his hit “Love Me Now.”
Country singer Cam joined Gallagher for a rendition of her hit “Burning House” and Head fulfilled a rock and roll fantasy: jamming with legendary rock group Kiss.
Kelly Clarkson joined Gilman to perform a duet of “It’s Quiet Uptown” from the “Hamilton” mixtape.
Sting made a cameo in the finale, singing “I Can’t Stop Thinking About You,” the first single from his upcoming studio Album 57th & 9th. The Weeknd got the crowd pumped with “Starboy” and Bruno Mars brought the house down with “24K Magic.”
Teased in a preview for Season 12, “The Voice” returns in Feburary on NBC, with coaches Levine, Shelton, Keys, and Gwen Stefani, who held a coach’s chair on Seasons 7 and 9.
