The Latest on “The Voice” 2019
The top 4 contestants vying for the top spot are: Ricky Duran (Team Blake), Katie Kadan (Team Legend), Jake Hoot (Team Kelly) and Rose Short (Team Gwen).
When it comes to how the votes are tallied, NBC explains that the cumulative total is taken into account. “The ‘Finale Vote Total’ means each remaining artist’s Overnight Vote Total from the December 16, 2019 Overnight Voting Window together with the artist’s Cumulative Vote Total. The artist not otherwise eliminated with the highest Finale Vote Total will be declared the winner of The Voice.”

Each contestant will be paired with a special musical guest during the two-part finale. Billboard reports that Duran will perform the song “Pink Cadillac” with Gary Clark, Jr. and Adam Lambert will join forces with Kadan to cover “Believe.” Elsewhere, Little Big Town will partner up with Hoot to sing “Over Drinking” and Yolanda Adams will duet “In the Midst of It All” with Rose.
The finale will also include solo performances from pop and country acts like Jennifer Hudson, Black Eyed Peas, Luke Combs, Lady Antebellum, Dua Lipa and season 16 winner Maelyn Jarmon.
Kadan is considered by many to be the favorite, and she recently talked with Meaww about covering famous songs, and why she hasn’t shied away from pop icons like LaBelle and Lady Gaga. “I keep on seeing iconic songs by iconic artists. It’s intimidating, but it’s so much fun. I hope I do everybody justice,” she said. “I also got to sing a Lady Gaga tune, so I got to sing some more current stuff. I’d like to see myself doing something more current next time around too.”
The Voice live episodes air on NBC, on Monday and Tuesday nights.
