That's a wrap! After 13 weeks, 48 contestants, blind auditions, battle rounds, live shows, and plenty of bromantic tension between Blake Shelton and Adam Levine, the season 6 winner of The Voice was announced on Tuesday, May 20. 


This season's top three—Christina Grimmie, Jake Worthington, and Josh Kaufman—were first subjected to two hours of performances and anxiety before host Carson Daly made the final announcement. 

The star-studded event featured guest performers Coldplay, Robin Thicke, OneRepublic, Tim McGraw, Ed Sheeran, and Justin Moore, not to mention the return of some of this season's favorites. 

Two of the finalists, YouTube sensation Grimmie and country crooner Worthington, made it to the Top 10 on the iTunes charts based on their performances from Monday, May 19's live show, but Kaufman's iTunes results were skewed, leading all iTunes results to be eliminated. 

This helped propel Kaufman to become this season's winner. First-time winner coach Usher couldn't have been more thrilled, as he hugged his contestant grinning. 

Team Blake's country crooner Worthington came in second place with Team Adam's Grimmie taking the third spot, after Levine promised to sign her to his record label.

It's been a long journey for Kaufman, who received a four-chair turn in the blind auditions for his performance of "One More Try."
