WinnerEdit

Craig-Wayne-Boyd-400

Craig Wayne Boyd

This season was won by country-rock singer Craig Wayne Boyd, who becomes the second country singer and first male country singer to win. His victory is the first for Blake Shelton since season 4.

ControversyEdit

Rebekah Samarin montageEdit

Many fans of the show were shocked and angered when contestant Rebekah Samarin, a member of Team Adam, became the first contestant to have all three of her performances (blind audition, Battle Rounds, and Knockout Rounds) montaged (not shown in full). She took to Twitter to comment on it.

Craig Wayne Boyd victoryEdit

Fans of singer Matt McAndrew were outraged when country singer Craig Wayne Boyd of Team Blake won instead of McAndrew. Many claimed that McAndrew, due to his strong performances and five of his songs hitting the top 10 on iTunes, should've won instead of Boyd, who had had three songs of his own go top 10 on iTunes. However, there are also claims that because McAndrew and two of his Team Adam teammates, Chris Jamison and Damien, were in the finale with Boyd, some suspect that vote spliting between those three plus Boyd's underdog status and the influence of country music fans may have contributed to Boyd's victory.

Notable past contestantsEdit

  • Bryana Salaz, who made the top 20 as a member of Team Gwen, later joined the pop trio Sweet Suspense, who were originally formed on season 3 of the American version of the British talent show The X Factor. She later left the group to pursue an acting career after getting a role in an upcoming FOX show called Urban Cowboy.
