Who would’ve thought this day would come?! It is hard to imagine ‘The Voice’ without coach Blake Shelton, but this will be his last and final season on the hit singing competition show. On the latest episode of ‘The Voice,’ Blake Shelton filled the final spot on his team!
19-year old country singer, Grace West took the stage and wowed the judges with her rendition of Pam Tillis’ “Maybe It Was Memphis.” Judge Niall Horan from One Direction called her, “a real born storyteller.” Originally from Michigan, Grace moved to Nashville where she works as a songwriter, almost the same story as Blake who moved to Nashville at 17 to begin his journey as a country artist.
With a strong background and connection, Grace chose Blake as her coach and filled the final spot for Team Blake for the last time! With a stacked roster like Team Blake, they will certainly be the team to beat this season.
Shelton is the last original coach standing from the very first season in 2011. With 23 seasons under his belt, Blake is the most winning coach in ‘The Voice’ history with a total of 8 victories. We have our fingers crossed for a final a Team Blake win for coach Blake Shelton’s last season of ‘The Voice.’
8 wins is not the only thing Blake scored on ‘The Voice.’ The show is also where he met his wife, pop star Gwen Stefani. After 12 years, Shelton is leaving the voice to spend more time with their family, as he is now the step-dad to Gwen’s 3 sons, in addition to focusing on his music career and working on other projects.
