The Voice Season 16 Finale Part 2 Recap

Country legend Travis Tritt started the night off with Sevener performing “Trouble,” which had coach Kelly Clarkson up on her feet dancing. Taking the stage next was the Jonas Brothers, who belted out their new single “Cool” off of their upcoming album Happiness Begins. The newly-reunited trio gave off serious summer vibes with a carefree set surrounded by blow-up inflatable pools filled with hot girls and a fun retro vibe.

Khalid, who was an advisor for Legend’s team this season, performed “Talk.” Former contestants Mari and Kim Cherry commanded the stage with Lizzo’s “Good As Hell,” which morphed into something totally different as more past contenders — Shawn Sounds, Kalvin Jarvis, Domenic Haynes, LB Crew, and Jej Vinson — took over with their spin of Bobby Brown’s “My Prerogative.” stopped by to chat about the new NBC show Songland he’s a part of, along with Ryan Tedder, who came out next with One Republic and killed it with “Rescue Me.”

There was a quick break with the amazing performances to surprise the four finalists who were given new Toyota RAV4, which, of course, they were beyond thrilled about.

The music picked back up again with Hootie and the Blowfish bringing us back to the ’90s again with their 1994 hit “Let Her Cry.” Then it was back to the ’90s one more time with a beautifully done duet by Sarah McLachlan and Jarmon. The two performed a moving rendition of McLachlan’s “Angel.”

The high-profile performances didn’t stop. South Korean boy band BTS sang “Boy with Luv” while showing off their perfectly choreographed dance moves with the word “Love” spelled out in a giant pink neon heart behind them.

The ninth performance of the jammed-packed finale teamed up Roberts with Toby Keith. The pair did the country superstar’s new single “That’s Country Bro.”

Halsey performed her new song “Nightmare,” and then Top 24 hopefuls Lisa Ramey, Pressley Tennant, Betsey Ade, and Celia Babini delivered a killer version of Stevie Nicks’ “Edge of Seventeen.”

Hootie and the Blowfish rocked it again, this time with Rigdon, performing their iconic hit “Hold My Hand.”

After 10-time GRAMMY award-winning artists Taylor Swift and Brendon Urie gave the last performance of the night with their latest single, “ME!”, the finalists were brought out on stage.

Host Carson Daly asked them to say one last thing to their coach before announcing the fourth-place finalist, which was Team Blake’s Andrew Sevener.

Third place was Dexter Roberts, so it was now between Team Blake’s Gyth and Team John’s frontrunner Maelyn.

After Shelton and Legend praise their final contestants, the winner is revealed…
