The Voice Concludes Another Exciting Finale

Kennedy Holmes from Team “J-Hud” performed her original song “Love is Free.”  Winner Chevel Shepherd performed with the song cover of Tanya Tucker’s “It’s a Little Too Late.” After her performance, her coach said, “the best kind of artists to work with are the ones that don’t think they know it all and they have fun learning, and they have fun challenging themselves, and you are that girl. So I cannot wait to hear records from you. You are so talented.”  


The judges Adam Levine, Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Hudson, Blake Shelton, and Kelsea Ballerini were astonished at these performances.  Some other stars guessed starred on the finale and performed their most favorited songs.
