‘The Voice’ Fans Are Predicting This Contestant Will Win Season 18
Season 18 of The Voice is about to come to a close. Soon we will find out which contestant will win, but fans are already putting in their predictions. Do they think someone from Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkson, John Legend, or Nick Jonas’ team will win? Here is everything you need to know.
Blake Shelton still has the most wins
Shelton is the last remaining original coach on The Voice. So he has a good head start on Clarkson, Legend, and Jonas.
His team has won six seasons. Shelton revealed one reason he thinks his teams tend to do so well.
“America they can see it when you have an actual real bond with somebody on your team. People connect to that,” Shelton told Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest. “There is something about the country audience out there. They’re very active. You know from [American] Idol some of yall’s winners,” continued Shelton. “The country audience is so loyal and they connect. They follow through, man. They get on the phone. They vote.”
One person who is catching up to him is Clarkson who has won seasons 14, 15, and 17. It’s still a tough call between the remaining coaches when it comes to who will win this season after their finale part 1 performances.
Micah Iverson is on her team and performed an original song called “Butterflies” and covered Snow Patrol’s “Chasing Cars.” CammWess from Legend’s team sang Prince’s “Purple Rain” and an original song called “Save It for Tomorrow.” Thunderstorm Artis on Jonas’ team performed an original song called “Sedona” and covered Louis Armstrong’s “What a Wonderful World.”
Toneisha Harris from Shelton’s team performed Journey’s “Faithfully” and her original song, “My Superhero.” Shelton also has Todd Tilghman who performed “I Can Only Imagine” by Christian rock band MercyMe and an original song called “Long Way Home.”
They are predicting Todd Tilghman will win
Many fans noted that this finale is a tough call given the talent of the contestants. This isn’t stopping most fans from predicting what will happen in the finale.
There are many people online predicting this season will be another win for Team Blake because of Tilghman. The pastor sang “I Can Only Imagine” by Christian rock band MercyMe.
“Literally talking to you is like I’ve known you my whole life. Your journey is pretty amazing because you’ve kind of been this well-kept secret down in there in Meridan, Mississippi,” Shelton told Tilghman before his performance. “Nobody knew this incredible superstar was lurking in a church down there.”
Tilghman talked about what the song means to him. “This song sort of takes me to the core of who I am,” he said. “Even though I’m not very good at, thankfully I married the woman I did, I want to take risks because I have faith. I am really thankful that she believed in me at a place in my life where I didn’t even realize that I sort of stopped believing in myself. I fell in love with her.”
The finalists will be singing duets with their coaches in the finale tonight. The proceeds from the streaming and sales of the songs will go to Feeding America. Shakira will also be returning to perform in the finale. We will soon know if this prediction is right.
