The Voice Season 21 ended with Kelly Clarkson winning it all with her trio team Girl Named Tom.

Blake Shelton went into the semifinals with more singers still in the competition than any other team.

Ariana Grande came in strong, and even though she ended up out of the finals completely, she had some great singers.

John Legend also had great singers, and he had a strong chance to win in the finals, before falling just short.

BrittanyBree was one of the biggest stories of the Blind Auditions.

She came in and sang Call Out My Name by the Weeknd and she got four chair turns. She had the choice of all the coaches and chose John Legend.

The Battles round was tough, with BrittanyBree winning but Samara Brown saved by Legend, both moving on after singing Something He Can Feel.

BrittanyBree performed Best Part by H.E.R. in the Knockouts, but she lost to Samuel Harness in that round.

David Vogel came into the Blind Audition round and sang Breathin’ by Ariana Grande. It was a daring choice, and only one person turned for him.

That was Ariana Grande and he joined Team Ariana.

In the Battles round, he beat Chavon Rodgers and moved on after singing Sugar, We’re Goin Down by Fall Out Boy. He then lost to Ryleigh Plank in the Knockouts after singing Lose You to Love Me by Selena Gomez.

John Legend then used his steal to bring David to his team.

He didn’t last. After singing Slow Burn by Kacey Musgraves, he was eliminated in the Playoffs.

Samuel Harness

While rock singers often struggle on The Voice, he got three chair turns and chose John Legend over Ariana Grande and Blake Shelton.

In the Battles round, Samuel beat KJ Jennings when they sang I Know What You Did Last Summer by Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello.

Samuel then won the Knockouts in Bruises by Lewis Capaldi by beating BrittanyBree.

In the Playoffs, Samuel sang So Sick by Ne-Yo and he ended up slipping into the Wild Card. He sang Before You Go by Lewis Capaldi and ended up eliminated in that round.

His journey ended in the semifinals when he sang Ashes by Celine Dion and ended in the Bottom Four and then he sang My Heart Will Go On, also by Celine Dion, before going home.

Jershika Maple

Jershika Maple only impressed two coaches in the Blind Auditions, which proves that not everyone sees the true talent upfront.

Both Kelly Clarkson and John Legend turned for her after she sang Can You Stand the Rain by New Edition, and she chose Team Kelly.

This led to the Battles round where Jershika lost to Jeremy Rosado when they sang Hold On by Justin Bieber, and this led to John Legend stealing her.

In the Knockouts, Jershika beat Paris Winningham after singing Natalie Cole’s Inseparable.

Jershika then rolled into the finals, but it wasn’t always easy.

In the playoffs, she sang Beggin’ by the Four Seasons and moved on with the public vote. She also sang God Only Knows by King & Country, moving on again by public vote.

Lisa Fischer’s How Can I Ease the Pain was Jershika’s Top 11 song and moved her on, again by public vote.

In the Top 10, Jershika sang Paramore’s Ain’t It Fun, and ended up in the Bottom Three. She then sang V. Bozeman’s What is Love, and the public saved her from elimination.

In the Semifinals, she was in the Bottom Four after singing Elton John’s Don’t Let the Sun Go Down On Me, but she was saved again by fans after she sang Break Every Chain by Tasha Cobbs.

In the finals, Jershika sang Adele’s Rolling in the Deep, Rose Royce’s I’m Goin’ Down, and the Christmas song O’ Holy Night. She finished in fifth place.
