Grande was the only coach without a dog in the fight for the finale.
最终, the band Girl Named Tom from Clarkson’s team took the cake. They were the first-ever non-solo act to win the competition.
The band also performed the Jonas Brothers’ “Leave Before You Love Me” with Clarkson earlier in the night.
Also vying for the title was Hailey Mia, a fellow Clarkson teammate, team Legend’s Jershika Maple and team Shelton’s Wendy Moten and Paris Winningham.
They learned piano at an early age and took up theater when they switched over to public schooling, though the trio planned to become doctors until 2017, when their father was diagnosed with a rare form of 癌症.
The kids felt that they should form a band in order to spend more time together, as their father’s prognosis was still unclear.
在社交媒体上, the band shared 一份声明 after their win and thanked fans for their support, adding that the band plans to jet home to be with their father.
“Some might think this is the worst timing — our father taking such a downward spiral at the exact moment of our success on national TV,” 他们继续. “In truth, we feel fortunate and blessed by this joyful distraction. ‘The Voice’ has given our family opportunities to connect, reflect and marvel at the love we have for each other.”
The trio insisted their win on the show was “NOT a goodbye.”
“We have dozens of new songs that we cannot wait to share with you,” they revealed. “我们爱你, we are grateful to you, and we hope you have a special holiday season. See you in 2022!”
