The Voice Season 23 was packed with jaw-dropping performances and life-changing moments, especially when Gina Miles was crowned Champion. The newcomer Coach Niall Horan led Miles on the road to victory as Team Niall's frontrunner, and it was a thrilling watch from beginning to end. 

How to Watch

Watch the Season 26 premiere of The Voice on Monday, September 23 at 8/7c on NBC and next day on Peacock. 

Between red chair spins from Season 23 to the upcoming Season 24 of The Voice, Horan has been on the road for his 2023 The Show tour. He has dozens of magnetic performances on the horizon and revealed that Miles would be a perfect opening act. 

When asked if Horan would ever be open to Miles joining him on tour, Horan told E! that he would "love that." 

"If we can get her on some shows, things will have to happen in the background, but absolutely yeah," Horan beamed. "I mean this girl, I've been saying it for so long, I feel like no one was listening. This girl is like, you know talent when you when you hear it. And this girl's got it, so yeah, there's no reason why she wouldn't open up for me at some point."

The countless fans that voted for Miles on The Voice love the sound of that! Miles was ecstatic following the life-changing win, gushing over how grateful she is to have had a Coach like Horan guiding her along the way. 

"He's been a great mentor and a great friend, I said that before but I really do mean that..." Miles shared. "I do think he's been one of the best friends and mentors that I could ask for and literally every single day I'm so happy that I picked Niall."

Miles's journey on The Voice was mesmerizing, in part thanks to her soft-spoken demeanor combined with her larger-than-life vocals. Her classic singer-songwriter style instantly called to Horan during Miles' Blind Audition.

“I love voices with so much like character, like you’ve got,” Horan told Miles. “That was incredible to see you get up there and really hit those notes with proper control. Like, for such a young girl.”

“You went for the big chords, but you were so amazing in the early moments of the song," Horan commended. "They are the moments that are like, oh God, you know when you hear a good verse sung by someone who really means what they’re singing, there’s no better feeling. I’ve been there, I’ve walked through a competition like that.”

As for Horan's recent album The Showthe Season 24 Voice Coach is exploring new sonic horizons. In an interview with NBC Insider Horan told fans what to expect from his new sound.

“I would say for the new stuff, there is some experimentation going on. Yes, just stuff I've gathered over the years, you know, like ideas that I've had, things that I've learned influenced me, I'm starting to hear them all already come through my music," Horan revealed. "So consciously, naturally, whatever you want to call it, it's just kind of happening."

“It feels really good. Feels the most mature. Again, I haven't released music since I was 25 or 26, and to be closing in on 30, I think you just gather more information as you go. So I'm starting to hear all of that stuff [in] my music," Horan concluded. "And what I'm saying is a bit more grown up I guess. And I wanted the sound of that to match what I'm saying. So I think it's my favorite stuff. And the best stuff that I've made."
