This season of The Voice was a unique one given it had to be filmed remotely due to the pandemic. It has officially come to an end and fans are reacting to the winner.
Find out if Team Blake Shelton, Team Kelly Clarkson, Team John Legend, or Team Nick Jonas won. And why fans are shocked but not surprised with the results. [Spoiler for The Voice Season 18 Live Finale Part 2]
‘The Voice’ Season 18 winner was revealed
The finale revealed that Todd Tilgham, Toneisha Harris, and Thunderstorm Artis were the top three artists of the season. In the end, Tilgham was the one who took home the trophy for Team Blake.
Tilgham is a pastor from Meridan, Mississippi. The father of eight children was the first to audition for the coaches this season and got all four of them to turn their chairs.
Shelton tweeted about the results with “YES!!! That’s what I’m talking about!!!!!! CONGRATS @todd_tilghman!!! Season 18 @NBCTheVoice WINNER! You deserve this – so proud of you! Let’s go!!!!!!!”
Tilghman tweeted, “I wish I knew how to say thank you. And I wish y’all knew how much I respect and admire my new friends and fellow artists/contestants on @NBCTheVoice. I don’t know how long it’ll take me to process, but I sure am #grateful for every moment. @blakeshelton #TheVoice.”
Micah Iverson from Team Kelly was in fifth place, CammWess from Team John was in fourth place.
Blake Shelton previously revealed his theory behind his wins
This is the seventh season where Shelton’s team won the show. He previously told Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest why he believes his team has won so much.
“America they can see it when you have an actual real bond with somebody on your team. People connect to that,” he said. “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.”
There were many fans who predicted Tilghman would win. But they’re not happy about the results.
Fans are shocked but not surprised he won
Fans are sharing their disappointment over the Tilghman winning the season. However, many mentioned that this result was easily predictable given past seasons.
“#TheVoice I knew it. Another robbery at the voice finale. Thunderstorm or Toneisha one of them should have won not Todd,” tweeted a fan. Another fan pointed out one of those artists being their choice as the winner.
“I love Todd and his story but Toneisha deserved to win. Her voice is phenomenal, beyond compare! Remember, all those saying their pick was robbed….we the fans control the vote!#TheVoice,” tweeted another fan.
Some people are calling for more changes to the show. “Time for some changes at #TheVoice While Todd was good, the other four finalists were ALL better singers,” someone tweeted.
Chances are there will be changes next season of The Voice. That’s because the rules somehow change every season. But one thing that does stay the same is that country stars typically win. It’s unknown if any kind of change would change that.
