With cameos from Lady Gaga, Ne-Yo, OneRepublic, Celine Dion, and season five alums, the winner is announced
So that’s a wrap, folks. Tessanne Chin has been crowned the season 5 Voice winner. Jacquie Lee was runner-up, and Will Champlin came in third place.
Read EW.com’s post-show interview with Tessanne here.
Voice alums and supernova mega-music stars like Celine Dion, Lady Gaga, OneRepublic, and Ne-Yo all performed, before Carson Daly announced the season-ending champion.
The finale began with a season 5 alumni reunion performance of Outasight’s “Tonight is the Night.”
Jacquie Lee brought back Matthew Schuler, Cole Vosbury, James Wolpert, and Caroline Pennell to perform Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody.” Then, divas collided when Tessanne and Celine Dion sang “Love Can Move Mountains” — they slayed it, and who knew Celine would look so pumped to be on the Voice stage? OneRepublic also sang their single “I Lived.”
A boy band composed of this season’s graduating class performed Bruno Mars’ “Treasure” amid dueling stair towers. In the class picture? Matthew Schuler, Josh Logan, Nic Hawk, Preston Pohl, and Ray Boudreaux.
Will Champlin brought back Jonny Gray, Austin Jenckes, Caroline Pennell, and Cole Vosbury to sing Old Crow Medicine Show’s “Wagon Wheel.” Then, in one of the most jarring pairings of the night, Jacquie Lee sang with Paramore on “Ain’t It Fun.”
The patron saint of singing reality competitions, Kelly Clarkson, made an appearance in spirit, as Amber Nicole, Tamara Chauniece, Kat Robichaud, Stephanie Anne Johnson, Shelbie Z. and Grey sang “My Life Would Suck Without You.”
