Fan favorite Chloe Kohanski was crowned winner of Season 13 of The Voice last night. Kohanski's win marks the sixth victory for veteran coach and People magazine's Sexiest Man Alive Blake Shelton - making him the top mentor with a record-breaking number of wins.
The star-studded evening featured performances by Bastille, Vince Gill, Jessie J, Norah Jones, Bebe Rexha, Sia and last year's Voice winner Chris Blue. Kohanski was paired up with one of her idols, Billy Idol, to perform "White Wedding."
Kohanski beat out fellow Team Shelton member Red Marlow, Team Adam Levine's Addison Agen, and Team Miley Cyrus' Brooke Simpson.
Future Voice coach Kelly Clarkson made the TV debut of her new single "Medicine." Former coach Alicia Keys introduced her former artist and Voice winner Chris Blue, who performed his new single "Blue Blood Blues." Team Miley's only finalist, Brooke Simpson, took the stage to sing "Titanium" with Sia. Nedra Belle while fellow drag queens performed with Jessie J.
Kohanski has made a name for herself on the show by belting out classic '80s and '90s rock songs week after week. Some of the 23-year-old Nashville native's performance highlights include Bonnie Tyler's "Total Eclipse of the Heart," Blondie's "Call Me" and Foreigner's "I Want to Know What Love Is."
As for what she'll do with the $100,000 grand prize, Kohanski joked, "If I'm being honest, I probably would buy some clothing." She added, "But also I would probably take that money and invest it in being able to record whenever I wanted in my home. I've always lived in Nashville, off the same road [for] literally 23 years, so maybe [I'll move] and invest in starting a life for myself."
