It’s all over for The Voice contestants, and one lucky winner has been crowned the winner of Season 6 — but does the person deserve the title?
After 13 weeks of blind auditions, battles, fiery bromances and live shows, the singing competition that will change someone’s life has come to an end, and on Tuesday night, we finally found out who The Voice had crowned its Season 6 winner.
It was down to the final three contestants — Christina Grimmie, Jake Worthington and Josh Kaufman — who anxiously awaited the show’s host Carson Daly to announce the results last night, and the winner was… Josh Kaufman and his coach Usher! Worthington and his coach Blake Shelton came in second and Grimmie and her coach Adam Levine were third.
However, the results were not without their controversy. According to Us Weekly, Grimmie and Worthington were in the lead on iTunes — where fans can vote for their favorite contestant — and made it into the Top 10 on the iTunes downloads charts based on their performances on Monday night.
However, iTunes experienced a glitch and Kaufman’s votes were skewed, thus rendering all of the iTunes votes useless. Daly announced that the votes via iTunes had to be eliminated because of the error and would not be counted in the final tally, which left many fans feeling very disappointed.
But if Kaufman was not your favorite contestant, then it’s not all bad news, because if you are a fan of YouTube sensation Grimmie, then you’ll be delighted to know it’s not the end of the road for her — Levine has promised to sign her to his record label. Yay!
