And with that, The Voice's historic 20th season has come to an end. On Tuesday, The Voice crowned a new champion in the form of Cam Anthony, a Philadelphia native with a soulful voice. Anthony's victory gave Team Blake its eighth win in 10 years, a truly astounding feat.
Throughout The Voice Season 20, there was little doubt that Anthony was the show's frontrunner. Earlier this month, Shelton even admitted that Anthony "could be the first superstar that we launch off the show," an inadvertent reference to the NBC competition's lackluster record minting stars. The longtime coach echoed that sentiment during the finale, telling his winner, "You being on this show and giving us the chance to be a part of your journey has changed the show forever and we've been needing that."
Congrats, Cam Anthony! Here's hoping The Voice curse ends here, just as Blake Shelton predicted.
