The Voice announces Brynn Cartelli as Season 14 Winner

Brynn Cartelli was crowned champion of “The Voice” tonight. Cartelli is a 15-year old music and high school student from Longmeadow, Mass.

The soulful pop artist is the youngest winner ever in the history of NBC’s four-time Emmy Award-winning musical competition series.

Cartelli faced tough competition from the other Top 4 finalists — Spensha Baker and Kyla Jade from Team Blake, and Britton Buchanan from Team Alicia.

Season 14 of “The Voice” concluded at Universal Studios, Calif., with a star-studded live finale featuring performances by superstar recording artists Jason Aldean, James Bay, Florence + The Machine, Halsey feat. Big Sean, Dua Lipa and Season 13 winner Chloe Kohanski. Additionally, the finale featured special musical collaborations with the Top 4 artists and chart-topping singers, including Season 15 coach Jennifer Hudson, Ryan Adams, Kane Brown and Julia Michaels.

In her Blind Audition, Cartelli sang “Beneath Your Beautiful” by Labrinth feat. Emili Sande, earning her a chair turn from both Blake Shelton and Kelly Clarkson. After both coaches fought to work with this young talent, Cartelli ultimately chose first-time coach Clarkson. Her performance of Sia’s “Unstoppable” in the Live Playoffs earned Cartelli a spot in the Top 12 though America’s votes. Her ability to cross genres with songs such as Patty Griffin’s “Up to the Mountain,” Lady Gaga’s “You and I” and Coldplay’s “Fix You” brought Cartelli all the way to the Semi-Finals, where a moving performance of Jackie DeShannon’s “What the World Needs Now Is Love” sealed the deal and sent her all the way to the Finals.

The finale ended with Spensha Baker finishing in 4th place. Kyla Jade finished in 3rd place. Britton Buchanan finished in second with Brynn Cartelli announced as the winner. 

"The Voice" will return for Season 15 with coaches Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Hudson, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton this fall.
