‘The Voice’ Recap: And The Winner Is…

Well, that’s all folks!

Tuesday night, our very own Carson Daly crowned the season 3 winner of The Voice!

But before he rattled through the results, we were treated to some incredible performances.

Rihanna, Bruno Mars, Kelly Clarkson, and The Killers were all there, plus, the finalists sang alongside some incredible artists including Avril Lavigne, Smokey Robinson, and Peter Frampton!

“My favorite moment of the show hands down was having Brandon [Flowers] and The Killers on, singing with Cassadee,” Carson shared. “A, just getting them on the show was so cool. I love the song they did and I really love that they let Cassadee come up and do that final verse and I thought Brandon and Cassadee were great together. Because you look at Cassadee and you think like, ‘Oh, you know, pop and you see her with Avril Lavigne, yada, yada, yada, but then you see her with The Killers and it just really crystallized to me how diverse she could be musically.”

Carson was our man on-the-scene yesterday evening and he put together a handy dandy recap just for you!

SPOILER ALERT! Team Blake Shelton’s Cassadee Pope won over America last night and went home a winner. She’s taking home a record contract and sweet cash prize, not to mention a BRAND NEW CAR!

But before Cassadee learned her exciting fate, the pop rocker got to perform alongside one of her personal idols, Avril Lavigne. The ladies sang a duet version of Lavigne’s “I’m With You.”

As for the rest of the results, Terry McDermott finished in second place and Nicholas David ended up in third.

But don’t feel too badly for the boys. Carson said they were thrilled just to make it this far.

“Nicholas David, I think, was glad that he didn’t win. We’ve said this before. Sometimes, in these types of shows, by coming in second or third, you have all of the same benefits with none of the pressure. You have access to songwriters this morning, agents, everybody’s knocking on your door.”

Bummed that season 3 has come to a close? Well, don’t you fret! Season 4 will be here in just a few months! Check out a sneak preview below:
