It was a night so filled with amazing performances and wonderful guest stars that one was easily distracted from the suspense surrounding answering the question of who would win the Voice.
One of the standout moments of the night included Voice winner Craig Wayne Boyd teaming up with legendary southern rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd for a spirited performance of the iconic “Sweet Home Alabama.”
The Voice also featured a show-stopping performance by Bruno Mars, who fearlessly rocked the stage with golden curlers in his hair.
Yes, this Voice finale did not hold back in terms of star power.
The Voice also had performances by Ed Sheeran, Hozier, and Meghan Trainor among others. The fact that we had Jennifer Hudson, an American Idol alum, belting out high notes on The Voice is just one more nail in the coffin for the Fox rival.
Even though the other three Voice contestants were no doubt disappointed to be leaving the show without the title of Voice winner, they would not be leaving empty-handed.
Thanks to the generosity of Nissan, all four Voice finalists were given a brand new car.

As for your Voice winner, Craig Wayne Boyd could be the one to take the previous trend of previous Voice winners failing to achieve any sort of significant fame. Country music artists who come off of these shows tend to be highly marketable.
Although it’s also possible that we may be hearing again from other finalists. Matt McAndrew did take the top spot overnight on iTunes. There is potential all around, and all Season 7 finalists should be extremely proud of their progress.
After all, each member of the finale four contestants on The Voice featured in the iTunes Top 10. In fact, the original songs by three different Voice singers (Matt McAndrew, Craig Wayne Boyd, and Chris Jamison) managed to knock Taylor Swift out of the top spot.
With a reaction that strong from Voice viewers, it would be a shame if at least one person weren’t able to capitalize from a great season of The Voice.
Especially for Voice winner, Craig Wayne Boyd.
Looking back over the season, he has had a few memorable moments. Especially with his cover of “Walk The Line” and a beautiful rendition of “Old Rugged Cross.”
Do you think Voice viewers made the right decision?
