Who won "The Voice" season 13? The NBC singing competition revealed the answer on Tuesday night, in a two-hour finale episode packed full of guest performances before the next winner was crowned. Here are all the highlights (and spoilers!) that music fans need from the "Live Finale, Part 2" episode before "The Voice" signed off for the year:
1) The winner
The most important part of the finale was naming the winner of "The Voice" season 13. To no one's surprise, Team Blake's Chloe Kohanski was declared "The Voice" at the end of Tuesday's episode, giving Blake Shelton his second win in three seasons, and his fifth overall. Kohanski had been the favorite for weeks due to her surging popularity on the iTunes Singles Chart, and is the third winner who was nearly eliminated from the show only to be saved with a Steal; she had been on Team Miley at the start of the season, but lost her knockout round and was saved by Shelton. Team Blake remains the winningest team in "Voice" history by a large margin, followed by Team Adam with three wins.
2) Miley's big milestone
Adam Levine's finalist Addison Agen was the runner-up on Tuesday, with Team Miley's Brooke Simpson coming in third and Team Blake's Red Marlow finishing in fourth place. Miley Cyrus, who won't be returning for "The Voice" season 14 in February, was able to get an artist to the finals in her first season on the show. That's something that neither of her predecessors, Gwen Stefani and Shakira, were able to do in their first seasons - so that's an accomplishment worth recognizing. (The original coach in Miley's chair, Christina Aguilera, had a finalist in her first two seasons since the show's format required each coach to have an artist in the finale.)
3) Billy Idol hits "The Voice"
"The Voice" always packs its last episodes full of guest artists, to perform both solo and with the finalists, and Tuesday's episode was no exception. Each finalist got a famous duet partner, and the highlight of the night was Kohanski performing "White Wedding" with the legendary Billy Idol. Kohanski found her niche with 1980's pop-rock songs in the semifinals, and Idol was as always on top form. You can watch their performance by playing the video above.
