'The Voice': Who won?

“The Voice” named its 13th winner Tuesday night, and the lucky victor was no surprise.

Rocker Chloe Kohanski triumphed on the NBC singing contest, and she elevated coach Blake Shelton to winner for a record sixth time.

Addison Agen, who represented Adam Levine’s team, placed second.

Brooke Simpson, who was coached by Miley Cyrus, came in third.

Country singer Red Marlow, another member of Team Blake, came in fourth.

Chloe, 23, of Nashville had been the standout in Monday’s final performance show. She was equally strong on the new song “Wish I Didn’t Love You” and the classic “Bette Davis Eyes.”

She is the third singer in “Voice” history to reach No. 1 on the iTunes singles chart three times in one season. She did it with “Wish I Didn’t Love You,” “I Want to Know What Love Is” by Foreigner and “Total Eclipse of the Heart” by Bonnie Tyler.

By winning, Chloe collects the grand prize of a recording contract. She also will be part of “The Voice: Neon Dreams,” debuting in the spring at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. She will perform eight shows a week with “Voice” season 10 winner Alisan Porter and finalists Matt McAndrew, Matthew Schuler, Mary Sarah, Chris Mann and Michael Sanchez.

“The Voice” saved the results for the final 10 minutes of a blockbuster, two-hour telecast. There were dynamic performances from Kelly Clarkson, Demi Lovato and Sia.

Each finalist was paired with a star: Red with Vince Gill on “When I Call Your Name”; Chloe with Billy Idol on “White Wedding”; Addison with Norah Jones on “Don’t Know Why”; and Brooke with Sia on “Titanium.”

Alicia Keys, the winning coach of season 12, introduced a performance by season 12 winner Chris Blue, who was in top form.

Keys returns for season 14. The other coaches will be Levine, Shelton and newcomer Clarkson, the first winner of “American Idol.”
