"The Voice" USA 2014 winner will be crowned on Tuesday with the top three contestants having put up their final live performance. America will choose the winner of the competition from the finalists - Christina Grimmie, Jake Worthington and Josh Kaufman.
The winner of "The Voice" season 6 will be announced on Tuesday's episode, which will be telecast live at 8:00 pm EST on NBC Television (6.30 am IST, Wednesday). Host Carson Daly will declare the winner based on America's votes.
The final live performance episode saw the three finalists sing three songs each – a duet with their coach, a song of their choice, and one chosen by America.
Christina Grimmie: The Internet sensation from Team Adam kicked off the show with America's Choice, "Wrecking Ball" by Miley Cyrus. Interestingly, she made the breakthrough in the show with the same song during the blind auditions. And she nailed it again, earning the praises of the judges.
She sang Gotye's "Somebody That I Used To Know" with her coach Adam Levine before taking on Elvis Presley's "Can't Help Falling In Love" for her final performance. Her rendition of Elvis Presley's classic was perhaps her best in the competition.
Jake Worthington: The country singer from Team Blake sang America's Choice, "Don't Close Your Eyes" by Keith Whitley, which he happened to sing during the blind auditions. It was a beautiful rendition. He then sang "A Country Boy Can't Survive" by Hank Williams Jr. with his coach, which blended so well.
His final performance of the night was "Right Here Waiting" by Richard Marx and it was beautiful. He made the song sound so country and different with clear depiction of the lyrics.
Josh Kaufman: The consistent singer from Team Usher sang Stevie Wonder's "Signed, Sealed and Delivered, I'm Yours". It was a beautiful rendition with lots of soul. He has proved that he is a singer of his own with this song. His duet with coach Usher - The Police's "Every Breathe You Take" – was a cool performance.
He took on Adele's "Set Fire To The Rain" for his final performance. It seemed like an odd song choice but he proved the notion wrong by rendering it so beautifully. In fact, he can make any song sound good with his unique voice and style.
Looking at Monday night's performance, Kaufman deserves "The Vocie" title. Moreover, his performance has been so consistent throughout the season. Worthington and Grimmie too have put up strong performances, hinting that the final results can swing in anybody's favor.
