After a season full of steals, saves and tears, we have come down to The Voice‘s final four – and it’s quite a bunch!
Because it’s impossible to decide our favorite finalist, PEOPLE has broken down and analyzed the final four in depth.
Sawyer Fredericks, 16Hometown: Fultonville, New York Blind Audition Song: I Am a Man of Constant of Constant Sorrow, first recorded by Dick Burnett. The Voice Journey: Let’s put it this way. Coaches Christina Aguilera, Pharrell Williams, and Adam Levine all turned their chairs within ten seconds of hearing Fredericks’ sweet melodies during the blind auditions. A ‘Team Pharrell original’, this farm boy at heart has been a fan favorite since the beginning. Aguilera even solidified Fredericks as a frontrunner, despite the fact that he was not on her team, saying, “I think Sawyer is definitely a standout.”
Koryn Hawthorne, 17Hometown: Abbeville, Louisiana Blind Audition Song: My Kind of Love by Emeli Sande The Voice Journey: A young lady with a powerful voice! “There’s no vocal coach in the world that can teach what you just did and I would be honored to be your coach,” Aguilera told the Louisiana sweetheart during the blind auditions. Though Hawthorne originally chose to be on Team Christina, in the end, it was Team Pharrell would become her saving grace. Hawthorne’s work ethic has been evident throughout the entire season. Coach Pharrell compared her drive and motivation to that of Beyoncé‘s. We feel like that’s an honor in itself!
Meghan Linsey, 28Hometown: New Orleans, Louisiana Blind Audition Song: Love Hurts by Nazareth The Voice Journey: Having previously toured with Blake Shelton during her days in the country duo Steel Magnolia, Linsey was surprised when Blake didn’t turn his chair during the blind auditions. “Really Blake?” Linsey jokingly said. Blake went on to say, “She’s one of the best singers I’ve ever heard in my life.” Originally choosing Team Pharrell, Shelton couldn’t help but bring his old friend back to his team. Shelton said, “I expect to see you in the finale of the show this year.” Well, Linsey definitely met Shelton’s expectations!
Joshua Davis, 37Hometown: Traverse City, Michigan Blind Audition Song: I Shall Be Released by Bob Dylan. The Voice Journey: With a standing ovation from Adam Levine and Shelton at the blind auditions, Davis chose to be on Team Blake with confidence. This soulful, family man, who is no stranger to performing in front of large crowds, ended up on Team Adam after Levine decided to one up his epic rivalry with Shelton by pulling a steal! Midway through the season, it looked as if Davis was on his way home until America stepped in with a major save. Though Davis hasn’t had the smoothest of rides on The Voice, he has proven his position time and time again.
The winner of The Voice season 8 will be announced Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
