It all comes down to this!
It's been an incredible season 17 for The Voice, but only one could be crowned the winner. Tuesday's finale was a special one, as for the first time in the last seven seasons, all four coaches on the NBC singing competition show had a singer in the finale.
Team John Legend's finalist was Katie Kadan, a colorful Chicago songstress with a big voice and an even bigger personality. For Team Kelly Clarkson, it was Jake Hoot, a country crooner from Tennessee, who consistently topped the most-streamed charts with each new performance. Team Blake Shelton was represented by Ricky Duran, an old-school singer with a soulful voice and some serious guitar skills, and Team Gwen Stefani had the soulful singer Rose Short, who nearly brought her coach to tears last week with a beautiful rendition of Aretha Franklin's "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman."

Blake Shelton Brings Gwen Stefani to Tears on ‘The Voice’
After an epic night filled with performances by mega-stars The Black Eyed Peas, J Balvin, Dua Lipa, Jennifer Hudson, Lady Antebellum and more, it was down to the final performances by the rising stars.
Katie was the first contestant to perform alongside Adam Lambert, singing Cher's "Believe." Rose was up next singing a breathtaking rendition of "In the Midst of It All" with Yolanda Adams. Ricky was third, performing a sultry version of "Our Love" with Gary Clark Jr. Jake, on his end, took the stage with Little Big Town and perfectly blended in with the country stars to sing "Over Drinking."
And the winner is: Jake Hoot!
Ricky Duran was the runner-up, followed by Katie Kadan in third and Rose Short in fourth.
That's a wrap! Expect even more fun and talent on season 18, which will debut in spring 2020 and see Nick Jonas joining as a coach, alongside Clarkson, Legend and Shelton.
