(LOS ANGELES) — Christina Aguilera made Voice history on the 10th-season finale of the NBC singing competition Tuesday night.
Her artist, Alisan Porter, was named the new champion of The Voice. It marks the first time in series history that a female coach has led a contestant to victory.
Alisan, a 34-year-old mother of two and former star of the movie Curly Sue, finished ahead of runner-up Adam Wakefield of Team Blake Shelton in the voting. She receives a recording contract as her grand prize.
Alisan reprised her original song “Down That Road” to close the season.
Hannah Huston of Team Pharrell Williams and rocker Laith Al-Saadi of Team Adam Levine finished in third place and fourth place, respectively.
During the two-hour results show, each finalist performed with a special guest. Alisan joined Jennifer Nettles on Nettles’ song “Unlove You”; Adam Wakefield welcomed Alison Krauss for a cover of “Willin’” by Little Feat; Hannah teamed up with former Voice coach Cee Lo Green for a rendition of his hit song, “Crazy”; and Laith and Joe Walsh collaborated on Walsh’s “Rocky Mountain Way.”
Each artist also brought back previously eliminated contestants for special group performances.
A couple of the coaches took the stage during the night, including Christina, who assisted Ariana Grande on a medley. After Ariana sang her song “Into You,” Christina lent her powerful vocals to Ariana’s single, “Dangerous Woman.”
Earlier in the broadcast, Blake delivered a live version of his new tune, “She’s Got a Way With Words.”
Little Big Town kicked off the broadcast with a performance of “One of Those Days.” Pharrell, who produced the country band’s upcoming album, joined them on stage and sang along.
The musical lineup also included Sia, who sang “Cheap Thrills,” and Zayn, who entertained viewers with “Like I Would.”
The Voice returns next fall on NBC, with Alicia Keys and Miley Cyrus both joining the show as new coaches.
