Internet spoilage being what it is, it’s hard to avoid reading about the outcome of a show as popular as The Voice. But it’s usually mandatory to declare an official spoiler alert at the beginning of articles such as these, just in case you’re reading preview text or clicked on this by accident.
There. You’ve been warned. Read at your own peril.
The fact that you’re reading this article at all is a sign that you either watched the season finale or you don’t mind the spoilers with your reality TV.
Last night, Josh Kaufman was declared the winner.
He may not have been the favorite. And there may have been a glitch involving iTunes, that got his coach, Usher, really upset.
But he won nevertheless.

Usher has had a lot to say about the win, including a message of hope to new coaches Pharrell Williams and Gwen Stefani. “(They can) be motivated by the fact that I was able to win ‘The Voice,’” he told TODAY. “I think that they are both incredible artists, and as long as they are as true in their process of working with talent as they are with their creative, then it should work. They’re geniuses. For the most part they should just be true to who they are, that’s what I did. It was a bit unorthodox … but that was all a process of artist development.”
Season seven of the voice is on the horizon. But little is known as to what it will bring. We know that Usher won’t be returning. Will his “replacement” Pharrell Williams claim a win for whoever he coaches? Or will we see a win from old guard members Adam Levine or Blake Shelton?
