The Voice Season 21 was exciting for countless reasons, but watching Girl Named Tom take the crown and perform alongside Coach Kelly Clarkson was a moment for the history books. 

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. 

The sibling folk trio featuring Caleb, Joshua, and Bekah Leichty made headlines for becoming the first musical group to take home the win on The Voice. Everyone remembers Girl Named Tom's astounding Blind Audition, showcasing their seamlessly pitch-perfect harmonies with the song "Helplessly Hoping" by Crosby, Stills & Nash. The Coaches witnessed the birth of a future winner, resulting in a four-chair turn, but Clarkson wouldn't be held back.

Clarkson turned her red chair within seconds of the group's first notes, instantly encouraging Girl Named Tom to choose her team. Joining Team Kelly was a smart maneuver, as Girl Named Tom continued to stun audiences with their angelic harmonies and dreamy vocals until they were eventually announced the Season 21 winners. 

One of the most iconic performances from Season 21 of The Voice was when Coach Kelly took to the stage to perform alongside Girl Named Tom for The Voice Live Finale. Fans of The Voice always love when Clarkson grabs the mic, whether while on The Voice or during a Kellyoke segment on The Kelly Clarkson Show.

Clarkson and Girl Named Tom sang a jaw-dropping rendition of Marshmello and Jonas Brothers' "Leave Before You Love Me." Kelly and Bekah looked stunning in their sequined fits, while Caleb and Joshua looked equally sleek in their black and red suits. The song was accompanied by bright-colored disco lighting, the perfect touch to an already beautiful performance.

Clarkson always delivers show-stopping vocals but combined with the vocal force of Girl Named Tom, their performance for the Live Finale was simply mesmerizing. There are numerous impressive Coach performances throughout the 21 seasons of The Voice, but Clarkson and Girl Named Tom's is one that fans will never forget. 

Girl Named Tom continues to wow crowds to this day, with a bright future in the music industry on the horizon. In an interview with The Record, Josh Leichty revealed, “We have a single that’s fully in the can. There’s a lot of stuff that has to happen before it can be released, but it won’t be long until we have something out. We’re hoping to get a number of songs out this year, maybe a Christmas EP.”

Find out which Artist will take home the Season 22 win when The Voice returns to NBC on Monday, September 19 at 8/7c.
