What a season!
The Voice season 11 has just come to an end, and congratulations are in order to the show’s newest winner, Sundance Head!
The 37 year-old soul-country crooner and Team Blake member is the son of Roy Head, who had the 1965 hit “Treat Her Right” with the band The Traits. He may have only gotten Blake Shelton and Adam Levine to turn around with his blind audition song “I’ve Been Loving You Too Long,” but he proved he could sing pretty much anything you put in front of him (including Miley Cyrus and Alicia Keys songs) with his own twist.
Tonight’s finale also included a whole lot of fun totally unrelated to the competition. From Adam Levine pulling a Ferris Bueller to Ariana Grande and Stevie Wonder dueting, to Kelly Clarkson, Bruno Mars, The Weeknd, Kiss, and more, the two hour show was packed to the brim with stars and shenanigans.
There were also many, many ads for the new movie Sing, which was also fun, we guess!
While Miley Cyrus may have been the only coach this year without a team member in the finals, that’s not discouraging her from coming back to the show for a second time. She has already been confirmed as a coach for next fall’s season 13, though no other coaches have been named.
This spring, Blake Shelton, Adam Levine, and Alicia Keys will all be back, along with Gwen Stefani, who will be returning to her chair for the spring season, which begins in February.
“We can’t wait to experience the unique chemistry and energy Gwen, Alicia, Blake and Adam will bring to season 12,” Paul Telegdy, president of Alternative and Reality Group at NBC Entertainment, said in a statement. “With Miley returning for season 13, we’re truly ecstatic about the unmatched musical know-how and talent coming together in our coming seasons.”
The Voice returns to NBC in February.
