The finale of The Voice Season 12 kicked off last night with the four finalists giving three performances each, all in pursuit of the winning title. Gwen Stefani did not have any artists in the finale.
Team Alicia’s Chris Blue, Team Adam’s Jesse Larson and Team Blake’s Aliyah Moulden and Lauren Duski all performed original songs never heard before, covers and a duet with their respective coaches.
The combination of guitar and voice has put Team Adam’s Jesse Larson in the finale. Last week’s instant save gave the Minnesota artist the fourth and final spot.
Emotions got the better of Team Blake’s Aliyah Moulden two weeks ago, but the 15-year-old Californian overcame them en route to becoming the show’s youngest ever finalist.
Michigan country singer Lauren Duski is Team Blake’s other finalist. Consistent all season, she topped the iTunes chart last week for the first time.
Range has been key for Team Alicia’s Chris Blue. His inspirational anthem last week hit No. 2 on iTunes.
