And that’s a wrap! Tonight’s episode was the season 12 Live Finale of The Voice where the winning artist was chosen by America’s votes. We were also surprised with a duet from Gwen and her artist Hunter Plake of “Don’t Speak”. The piano accompaniment was beautiful and unique and the pair’s vocals on the song were spectacular.

The finale also featured a cute little segment on Gwen being the hardest working coach on the show with her in funny scenarios with her red chair in tow. The three-hour episode was packed with performances from many big-time artists including Rascal Flats joining up with Team Gwen favorite Brennley Brown. As she’s done in seasons past, Gwen saved one of her best looks for last with her hair in a gorgeous up-do, red lips and sparkly dress. She also graced the stage in a gorgeous red gown for her performance of “Don’t Speak”.

It was unfortunate that Team Gwen wasn’t able to make it past the semi-finals for season 12 but it was still a thrill to see her compete every week and doing something she’s truly passionate about.

And the winner is…

Congratulations to Alicia Keys and her artist Chris Blue!

  1. I would like a Gwen and Miley season. I like this new version of Miley and her new song Malibu.
    The staging was so good with Gwen and Hunter and the red baby grand with the white.
    Sad that it looks like Gwen won’t be there for the next two seasons.
