The Voice Crowns Season 22 Champion

After months of nail biting competition, America chose Bryce Leatherwood to be the winner of The Voice 2022.

Mentored by Blake Shelton, the 22-year-old singer gives the iconic country music icon his record ninth victory prior to leaving the show after Season 23.

From his very first performance during the Blind Auditions, Leatherwood was ahead of his competition when he sang Shelton’s adaptation of Conway Twitty’s “Goodbye Time.’ and Bryce’s story grew as he moved swimmingly through the rounds. During the first part of NBC’s two-day finale, the young singer impressed the crowd with covers of Travis Tritt’s “T-R-O-U-B-L-E” and Keith Whitley’s “Don’t Close Your Eyes”. During the finale, Shelton joined forces with his protégé for a performance of his 2011 hit “Hillbilly Bone”.

In the closing moments, Leatherwood outshined fellow Team Blake singer Bodie, Team Camila Cabello’s Morgan Myles after Team Blake’s Brayden Lape and Team Legend’s Omar Jose Cardona were eliminated in the closing stages.

For Leatherwood, his victory includes a recording contract with Universal Music Group and $100,000.00 in cash.

Prior to this season’s dramatic conclusion, The Voice finale also featured performances by Kane Brown, Kelly Clarkson, Maluma, OneRepublic, BRELAND and Adam Lambert, who debuted his cover of Duran Duran’s “Ordinary World.”
