The show opened with a performance from the four coaches and the Top 9 contestants, along with former coaches CeeLo Green, Bebe Rexha, and Shakira. They performed “Let My Love Open the Door” by Pete Townshend, all from different places.


Check out the rest of the night’s amazing performances below, and find out which of the Top 5 artists took home the trophy as the winner of The Voice Season 18.
