On Tuesday night, “The Voice” declares a winner for Season 20.
Here’s a breakdown of the five artists who have a shot at $100,000 and a record deal.
Team Blake — Cam Anthony
During the top 17 round of “The Voice,” Blake Shelton made a bold declaration regarding 19-year-old Cam Anthony: “You could be the first superstar that we launch off this show.”
After Anthony’s performances Monday night, Shelton stood by his claim, saying that the singer from Philadelphia could be the contestant that changes the trajectory of “The Voice.”
“You are just so ready for this stage. You’re ready for any stage you want to be on,” John Legend added, saying that at 19, Anthony already has the artistry and professionalism that it takes to be a superstar. “It’s just amazing to watch you do what you’re supposed to be doing in this world. It’s a blessing for all of us.”
Prior to “The Voice,” Anthony went on “The Ellen Show” after his rendition of Bruno Mars’ “When I Was Your Man” went viral. He has sang at the White House Easter Egg Roll during Barack Obama’s presidency, the Deseret News reported.
Team Blake — Jordan Matthew Young
Shelton also feels strongly about Jordan Matthew Young, another singer on his team who remains in “The Voice” competition. During Monday night’s episode, Shelton said he believes Young deserves to win this season.
“Jordan deserves to win ‘The Voice’ because of all the different genres he can do, and be believable while he’s doing it,” Shelton said. “He lives and dies with his guitar in his hand, and I love that about him.”
Young, a 35-year-old artist currently based in Austin, Texas, spent the last 10 years touring and performing as a blues singer when the pandemic hit. To finish out 2020, he moved back to his Utah home to work for his family’s construction business, The Austin Chronicle reported.
Young has stuck out in the competition for his ability to play his own instruments while performing.
“I love what you bring to this show, Jordan,” Legend said after Young performed the blues tune “Key to the Highway.” “No one is doing music like you on this show.”
“I am just so excited to buy your record, whenever that comes out, because I know that you’ve got a lot of depth, a lot of soul, a lot to share,” Jonas said after Young’s second performance of the night, a unique rendition of the Rihanna song “Stay.”
Team Nick — Rachel Mac
At 16, Rachel Mac is the youngest singer remainingin “The Voice” competition. She’s also what Nick Jonas has called the “dark horse” of the season since her audition only got a chair turn from one of the four coaches, the Deseret News reported.
But the teenager from Michigan has continually defied the odds on “The Voice,” rising through the ranks on Team Nick and ultimately making it all the way to the finale.
“Your dedication nearly made me cry, not going to lie,” Jonas said after Mac performed Lee Ann Womack’s “I Hope You Dance” Monday night. “You have so much depth as an artist, as a person. You work so hard. I am so proud to be your coach, and I am so proud to have been able to go on this journey with you and watch you grow into a superstar.”
Team Legend — Victor Solomon
Victor Solomon has been a frontrunner from the start of the “The Voice” Season 20, when he made the bold choice to perform Legend’s “Glory” during the blind audition round — a decision that ultimately paid off.
Solomon has remained on Team Legend throughout the entire season, and after his performance of Bonnie Raitt’s “I Can’t Make You Love Me” Monday night, Legend had nothing but enthusiasm for the 22-year-old singer from Illinois.
“I love how much personality, how much soul, how much of your own artistry you put on this classic, timeless, beautiful song,” the coach said. “I love the passion that you sing with every time you come out here.”
After Solomon’s second performance Monday night, a rendition of Beyonce’s “Freedom,” Legend declared it was the “best performance” he’s ever seen on “The Voice” stage.
Team Kelly — Kenzie Wheeler
Kenzie Wheeler could be the third country singer Kelly Clarkson leads to victory on “The Voice.” The 23-year-old artist from Florida has been on Team Kelly since his audition, when Clarkson used her only block of the round to keep Wheeler from going to Team Blake.
Clarkson has previously told Wheeler that he is one of her favorite singers she’s ever worked with. On Monday night, she reiterated how grateful she is to have been able to coach him on the show.
“I don’t think I’ve ever worked with anybody that had no idea how gifted they were,” Clarkson said. “That’s what I love about this show. ... It’s finding these voices that maybe we wouldn’t have found otherwise. ... It’s such an obvious thing that your purpose in life is to do music and to be a storyteller, it’s so natural for you.”
