Who Were the Top Five Finalists?
There were five finalists going into the finale, and they come from a variety of backgrounds.
- CammWess (Team Legend): For his finale performance, CammWess performed “Purple Rain” by Prince in what was the first time the song had ever been cleared for performance on the show. He performed in a purple blazer and completed the act with purple lights and a fog machine. After the performance, John told him that he applauded his artistry and passion. He later performed his original, “Save It For Tomorrow,” which he wrote.
- Todd Tilghman (Team Blake): Last night, Todd performed “I Can Only Imagine” by MercyMe and brought Kelly Clarkson to tears. Blake said that he wanted Todd to connect more with the lyrics and message and convey that in his performance, and John said that he was full of “enthusiasm, heart, and soul.” Later, he performed “Long Way Home,” which was written by Ester Dean and Voice alum Ryan Innes.
- Micah Iverson (Team Kelly): Micah sang “Chasing Cars” by Snow Patrol, which made Kelly really excited since she thought it was the best way to show off his fitting in the pop-rock-alt genre. Later, Micah performed his single “Butterflies,” which he wrote himself.
- Thunderstorm Artis (Team Nick): Thunderstorm sang “What a Wonderful World” by Louis Armstrong, making Nick really proud of having him on his team. He noted that the song captured a feeling we all need at the moment, and it also showed off just how talented Thunderstorm is. Nick said the performance was full of “emotional artistry” and “vocal excellence.” For his original, Thunderstorm sang “Sedona” which he wrote himself with creative input from Ryan Tedder.
- Toneisha Harris (Team Blake): Toneisha sang “Faithfully” by Journey for her chosen song in the finale. The coaches compared her to Chaka Khan and Blake thought it was her best performance yet. For her original, she sang “My Superhero,” which she wrote for her son, and the song brought Kelly to tears. Blake told her that performance was “as good as it gets.”
