Tonight was filled with A-list music artist performances on the 2014 finale of The Voice, but what we really wanted to know was the identity of the winner. And the winner of this season is … Craig Wayne Boyd. In fourth place was Damien Lawson, third place was Chris Jamison, and runner-up was Matt McAndrew.
Celebrity performers tonight included Bruno Mars, Ed Sheeran, Meghan Trainor, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Jennifer Hudson, Jessie J, and Fall Out Boy. Each of the top 4 contestants performed with their designated celebrity partner – Chris Jamison with Jessie J, Craig Wayne Boyd with Lynyrd Skynyrd, Damien Lawson with Jennifer Hudson, and Matt McAndrew with Fall Out Boy.
Viewers love Boyd because he’s a genuine, struggling artist, who his coach Blake Shelton says had been bumped around in the music industry for way too long. He’s a single dad who’s been waiting for an opportunity like this for many years and Gwen Stefani’s makeover of him really opened the eyes of fans. “My Baby’s Got A Smile On Her Face” is Boyd’s new single, given to him by coach Shelton.
