Fans were celebrating as the announcement was made that Jermaine Paul has won the latest season of The Voice. America has had the chance to cast votes for their favorite performers throughout the season. America’s vote determined the final winner.

‘The Voice’ is a singing competition that starts out in a very unique way. The judges listen to auditions with their backs to the stage and they cannot see the performers. Decisions about who the judges want on their teams are made solely on vocals. Once the judge “hits the button”, their chair turns around and lights up. If only one judge wants a performer on their team, the singer is put on that coach’s team. If more than one judge turns their chair around, the table is turned. The performer now gets to choose which team they want to join. Several elimination rounds lead to each coach having one final star to compete for the ultimate title, which is winning ‘The Voice’.

Coach Christina Aguillera brought the finalist from her team forward by encouraging him to embrace his musical genre. 29 year old Chris Mann is a professionally trained opera singer. This is the first time an opera singer has successfully made it to the finals in the musical series. Chris sang one of Christina’s songs, The Voice Within as his way of telling Christina thank you for all she has done to help him along his way. Chris has previous television fame in “Glee”. Mann studied opera in college and then began working as a bank teller in New York City. His performances have brought a new level of respect for opera and he has earned quite a fan base.

Coach Cee Lo Green helped Juliet Simms make her way to the finals. Juliet is an old school rocker with a unique gritty voice that wants to break through into hard rock music. There are not many female musicians that make it big in rock music. Juliet honored the efforts of her coach by singing the Gnarls Barkley song Crazy.

Blake Smith coached former Alicia Keys backup singer, Jermaine Paul, into the finals. Jermaine enjoyed his career as a backup singer, but decided to take a chance at become the main attraction by trying out for ‘The Voice’. Jermaine sang God Gave Me You to his coach as his way of showing how much he appreciated the coaching he received during the show.

Last year’s winning coach, Adam Levine, helped Tony Lucca make it to the finals. Tony was a former member of the Mickey Mouse Club with ‘The Voice’ coach Christina Aguilera, Britney Spears, Ryan Gosling and Justin Timberlake. Tony sang the Maroon 5 song Harder to Breathe as his commemoration of appreciation for all of the help he has received from his coach.
