The Voice 2016 Winner Is…. Chris Blue!
… and The winner of Season 12 of The Voice is…Chris Blue!
Over the last few seasons, The Voice has tilted more towards country music talent, partly because of the popularity of Blake Shelton and his strong fan base. But this year the pop singer Chris Blue managed to defeat country favorite Lauren Duski.
The talented singer, (and dancer!), from Knoxville, TN was one of the last to audition this season. He made his coach Alicia Keys a first-time winning coach of NBC’s hit vocal contest.
Here’s Chris Blue’s rendition of Superstition during his blind auditions:
Blue performed three songs on Monday’s finale show. He sang his original song Money on You, a duet with Alicia Keys of Prince’s Diamonds and Pearls, and the wow of the night, Janet Jackson’s Rhythm Nation.
On the second night of the finale show he performed Everybody Hurts together with Usher.
Chris was very emotional after he won but somehow managed to perform his original Money On You. He choked up multiple times during the song. Take a look:
