And the winner of 'The Voice' is...


After weeks of performing, it came down to Team Usher's Josh Kaufman, Team Adam's Christina Grimmie and Team Blake's Jake Worthington, and The Voice crowned a winner:

Soul singer Kaufman, a 38-year-old Sarasota native, won the NBC singing competition's sixth season Tuesday night, with Worthington coming in second place and Grimmie somewhat surprisingly coming in third. This is the first win for Kaufman's coach Usher.

Kaufman's performance of an Adele song Monday night fell victim to an iTunes glitch after Monday's show and, consequently, host Carson Daly announced during Tuesday's finale that all iTunes downloads had been thrown out and would not count toward crowning a winner.

The two-hour finale extravaganza saw the return of former Voice contestants, performing in every combination imaginable, and performances from Tim McGraw, Coldplay and Ed Sheeran.

The seventh season of The Voice is scheduled to air in the fall with new coaches Gwen Stefani and Pharrell replacing Usher and Shakira.
