The underdog caused a bit of an upset as Matt McAndrew took second place.
And the winner of The Voice is… Craig Wayne Boyd! Yes the country singing father has been crowned the winner of the talent show’s seventh season, beating favourite Matt McAndrew. Boyd’s win also means victory for his mentor, Blake Shelton who triumphed on Tuesday night despite rival Adam Levine having three acts in the final.
Here is your winner, Craig Wayne Boyd
In the grand finale, broadcast on Tuesday (December 16th) on ABC, the four remaining acts, Boyd, McAndrew, Chris Jamison and Damien Lawson battled it out for the lucrative recording contract.
The two hour long show was jam packed with star performances and special guests including Irish singer Hozier who performed Take Me to Church, Ed Sheeran who delivered ‘Thinking Out Loud’ and Bruno Mars (sporting curlers) and Mark Ronson who teamed up to bring some ‘Uptown Funk’.
Each of the top four contestants also got a chance to performed with someone special as Chris Jamison dueted with Jessie J, Craig Wayne Boyd with Lynyrd Skynyrd, Damien Lawson with Jennifer Hudson and Matt McAndrew with Fall Out Boy.
As the show drew to a close Damien Lawson was named fourth place runner up while Chris Jamison came in third. But while many (especially Adam Levine) had thought Matt McAndrew, who had the most songs in the iTunes top 10 of any finalist in the show’s history, was the sure fire winner it seems the public really cant get enough of country as Craig Wayne Boyd took the crown.
The show closed with an overwhelmed Boyd performing his new single ‘My Baby’s Got A Smile On Her Face’, while mentor Shelton looked on triumphantly. But while that might be all for this season of 'The Voice', the show wont be gone for long as season eight begins on February 23rd with Adam, Blake, and Pharrell all returning to coach as well as Christina Aguilera.
