Season 7 of The Voice has come to a close, and after a hard-fought battle between four talented singers, only one could walk away with a Universal Music Group recording contract and a $100,000 check.
Chris Jamison, Matt McAndrew and Damien Lawson, from Team Adam, and Craig Wayne Boyd of Team Blake faced off in the star-studded finale. Hopefuls from first-time coaches Gwen Stefani and Pharrell Williams failed to make the final rounds.
The two-hour spectacular featured solo performances by Ed Sheeran, Bruno Mars, Meghan Trainor and Hozier, as well as duets that teamed the four finalists with music megastars.
Damien Lawson and Jennifer Husdon sang "Your World," Craig Wayne Boyd teamed with Lynyrd Skynyrd on "Sweet Home Alabama," Matt McAndrew and Fall Out Boy performed "Centuries" and Chris Jamison dueted with Jessie J for a performance of "Masterpiece."
All of it made for an entertaining two hours, but the moment everyone was waiting for came in the final two minutes of the episode when the season-seven winner was finally revealed!
In fourth place was Damien, with Chris Jamison coming in third, leaving Craig Wayne Boyd and Matt McAndrew as the final two in a showdown between Team Adam and Team Blake.
In the end, the winner of Season 7 of The Voice was country crooner Craig Wayne Boyd, meaning Blake Shelton came back from a three to one contestant disadvantage to beat Adam Levine.
The coaches panel is set for season 8: Pharrell Williams returns for his second stint, along with Voice veterans Blake, Adam and Christina Aguilera – who will be back after a two-cycle absence.
