The Voice Season 24 Finale: Recap & Official Spoilers (LIVE UPDATES)

Which of the Top 5 Artists walked away victorious? Tonight, we found out.  

By Christopher Rosa

The big night happened: the Finale of The Voice Season 24. Yes, after 13 weeks of competitive singing action, we finally found out which Artist won America's vote — and heart. 

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. 

It wasn't an easy ride. The Season 24 Voice Artists were some of the most talented in show history, which is why during the Playoffs, the Coaches were each allowed to bring back a previously-eliminated Contestant. The crop of singers was just so next-level, many of the ones who went home deserved another chance. 

But the rounds ended. We watched every Blind Audition, every Battle, and every Knockout. Only five singers remained in the game: Huntley (Team Niall), Jacquie Roar (Team Reba), Lila Forde (Team Legend), Mara Justine (Team Niall), and Ruby Leigh (Team Reba). The Season 24 Coaches — Niall HoranGwen StefaniReba McEntire, and John Legend  — cheered the Contestants on all season, giving them useful tips along the way. But they couldn't do anything for them during the Finale. They could only hope they gave their Artists the foundation and toolbox to deliver their best performances yet, because that's what it takes to be crowned winner of The Voice
