The Voice US has named its latest winner after Cam Anthony was crowned champion of season 20.
The 19-year-old gave a series of impressive performances to help Blake Shelton make history by achieving his record eighth win as a coach during Tuesday night’s final.
Cam claimed the top prize of $100,000 and a recording contract with Universal Music Group after being hailed as the ‘first superstar’ the show has produced by mentor Blake.
He’d been among the favourites on the latest season after getting three judges to turn after singing Sam Smith’s Lay me Down at the blind auditions.
The contestant secured the win on Tuesday night with versions of both Cynthia Erivo’s Stand Up and Bon Jovi’s Wanted: Dead Or Alive.
Speaking after his Stand Up performance, an emotional Blake said: ‘God put this young man here in my life on The Voice that may change everything for this show.’
It’s not the first time that Cam has been in the spotlight, after a video of him performing the Bruno Mars song When I Was Your Man went viral when he was 11. He later signed with Dr Dre and performed at the White House.
He beat Team Kelly’s Kenzie Wheeler in second place during Tuesday’s show. Like Cam, Kenzie also won a trip to Universal Orlando’s theme parks.
Team Blake’s Jordan Matthew Young came in third, while Team Nick’s Rachel Mac and Team Legend’s Victor Solomon finished in fourth and fifth place respectively.
Viewers are now looking forward to the 21st season of the hit show, especially after it was previously announced that Ariana Grande is going to be replacing Nick Jonas as coach.
Ariana will join the next season of the show alongside regular coaches Blake, John Legend and Kelly Clarkson.
The Voice US airs on NBC.
