NBC's hit reality-show competition The Voice has crowned its second winner! After an emotional season (that even included a much-publicized feud between a judge and a contestant), the final four contestants -- Tony Lucca, Chris Mann, Jermaine Paul and Juliet Simms -- performed on stage one last time before the new Voice was announced.
During Tuesday night's live finale, the four celebrity judges -- Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton -- were seemingly as anxious as their show proteges who awaited to hear their fate.
"I truly believe that any one of these four deserve to win," Levine said at the beginning of the show.
But despite their combined talent, only one contestant could be named The Voice and awarded a record contract with Universal Republic Records. And that winner was... Jermaine Paul!
Before taking the stage to reprise his performance of "I Believe I Can Fly," the father of four (who's a former backup singer for Alicia Keys) embraced his coach, Blake Shelton. "You did it!"Paul gushed to his victorious mentor.
Team Cee Lo's Juliet came in second, Team Adam's Tony came in third and Team Christina's Chris rounded out the top four.
