But first: Who won Season 16 of The Voice?
The top four finalists of The Voice ended up being Andrew Sevener (Team Blake), Gyth Rigdon (Team Blake), Dexter Roberts (Team Blake) and Maelyn Jarmon (Team John). Fourth place went to Sevener, third place went to Roberts, and second place to Rigdon, making The Voice Season 16 winner Maelyn Jarmon — Team John Legend!
