Congratulations, Maelyn Jarmon!
The 26-year-old singer — who has become known for her powerhouse vocals — was crowned the winner of season 16 of The Voice on Tuesday night.
Jarmon’s win marks the first victory for new coach John Legend, who adds the accomplishment to his EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony) winning status.
Jarmon beat out Blake Shelton’s three country-singing contestants: runner-up Gyth Rigdon, Dexter Roberts, who placed third, and Andrew Sevener, who placed fourth.
“I really love Blake and I’ve really enjoyed getting to know him this year. He’s a very arrogant bastard,” Legend told reporters at the winner’s press conference following the show. “I had a feeling he was going to kiss someone’s ass after this show and I was right.”
