Ahead of the finale, the 17-year-old singer revealed that she couldn’t have felt more lucky to have the “All of Me” singer as a coach. “I’m going to cherish our time that we’ve had together forever,” she told reporters on Monday, May 20, adding she wants to meet his family! “If I get my trophy, we need to have dinner with Chrissy [Teigen] and Luna and Miles. I want that! I haven’t even met her yet.”

The singer, who is deaf in one ear but calls it her “superpower,” also said she felt like Legend, 40, really helped her grow as a person.

“Working with John, the main thing is that he really trusts my instincts and it makes me trust my instincts more,” she told Us. “I questioned myself a lot before I got here. He’s a musical genius, and for him to validate [my input] is like, ‘Wow.’ I’ll really take that with me that I trust myself more.”

In addition to the judges, the finale was filled with star power. Taylor Swift and Brendon Urie took the stage to perform “ME!,” Halsey performed “Nightmare, Travis Tritt sang “T-R-O-U-B-L-E” and the Jonas Brothers rocked out to their new hit “Cool.”

The Voice has been renewed for season 17 at NBC.
