The Voice Season 22 finale wrapped up on Tuesday night, with the first hour recapping Monday night’s performances. Each artist had two songs to perform, showcasing their talent.

Kicking off the show was a recap of performances with Bodie singing Late Night Talking by Harry Styles. Bodie then came back for his final song of the season, singing a spiritual cover of Gratitude by Brandon Lake, showing he’s been the most diverse singer in the competition.

Next up was Morgan Myles performing Bonnie Tyler’s Total Eclipse of The Heart. Morgan appeared excited to the point she was having trouble keeping her breath control moving around the stage. To make it to the finale show is a feat in itself, so good for her for having fun with it.

Morgan’s final performance of the season was Girl Crush by Little Big Town. She sang and played guitar for this performance, and it was such a great choice for her. Her coach, Camila Cabello, agreed that country was her style, and she does it in her own unique, authentic way.

Brayden Lape, the youngest performer left in the competition, sang a sleepy rendition of Humble and Kind by Tim McGraw. He seems to be both with the amount of support he has from his community in Grass Lake, MI. Fans turned up for the finale in droves to watch him win. His Second song choice was a more heartfelt version of Wild as Her by Corey Kent for his final performance of the season.

After Brayden performance Omar Jose Cardona took the stage for his performance of Michael Jackson’s The Way You Make Me Feel. Omar, the consummate entertainer, used the whole set for his energetic performance giving Morgan a run for her money in that department last night. He seemed to be able to control his breath despite the choreography. Omar’s final performance of the season was Queen’s classic anthem, Somebody To Love. Omar has no chill and kept his performances high-energy classics. He ended last night’s show with a bang.

Bryce Leatherwood closed out the performance recaps with a subdued choice of Keith Whitley’s classic Don’t Close Your Eyes. Bryce’s final song of the season was an upbeat country classic by Travis Tritt, T.R.O.U.B.L.E., which was a whole other side of him this season. Bryce has kept it low-key this season with his smooth buttery style.

Blake performed again during the night with his other team members, Brayden and Bodie, with the country jam Chasin’ That Neon Rainbow and God’s Country.

Camila performed the coach-finalist duet with her final artist Morgan. They sang Camila’s hit song Never Be the Same for their duet moment.
