It’s time to have a drink for the winner of The Voice season 19!
The NBC signing contest crowned its winner at the season finale on Tuesday, December 15, with a team Gwen Stefani‘s Carter Ruby Second Jim Ranger of the team Blake Shelton. The win brought the committed coaching couple against each other and marked Gwen’s first winning season.
“Oh my god, we won!” Gwen exclaimed in a video with 15-year-old Carter that the “Just a Girl” star posted on Twitter immediately after the exciting announcement. “This is so crazy. We’re trying to understand that this is happening right now.”
In the video below, she also joked about the difficulty of partying during the ongoing pandemic. “And we shouldn’t even be close to each other,” she complained.
Blake was a good sport when it came to not taking the title. “Congratulations on the win @gwenstefani!” he tweeted. “I’m slipping this! @Carterjrubin … if someone hits #TeamBlake, I’m glad it’s you !!!!”
There were five finalists remaining when the show went into showdown on Tuesday. They were Team Gwen’s Carter Rubin, team John Legend‘s John Holiday, Crew Kelly Clarkson‘s DeSz and Team Blakes Jim Ranger and Ian Flanigan.
