The Voice Season 14 has been a hot mess from start to finish. With mind-boggling decisions from the coaches, to the bloated live episodes, it's becoming clearer than ever that the show is running out of steam.
The show should air for one night a week, and have the eliminations in the same episode as the performances. It's becoming a drag to watch, and the ratings are reflecting it.
These expanded finale episodes are stuffed with filler, performances from stars we have heard so much about that we're sick of, and more performances from the potential winners.
Britton Buchanan, Spensha Baker, Brynn Cartelli and Kyla Jade were the final four of The Voice Season 14, and while they were all very great at performing, only one of them could win.
Before we got to the first batch of results Season 13 victor, Chloe Kohanski made a return to the stage to perform her new single, "Come This Far."
It was a surprisingly robust track, and it was filled with the high notes we've come to expect from this vocal powerhouse.
The true test for Chloe will be whether she can emerge from The Voice's shadow and carve a career of her own in which she thrives instead of disappearing into the ether like much of the others from the show.
In an unsurprising move, Spensha Baker was voted out first, meaning she came in fourth place. Kyla Jade came in third place.
This left Buchanan and Cartelli in the competitive loop for the title of The Voice. In an unsurprising move, Brynn Cartelli took the win.
Brynn has been one to watch all season long, and that's down to her strong vocals and versatility as an artist. You could throw any song her way, and she would make it her own without much of a struggle.
Brynn's win also gave Kelly Clarkson a win in her first season as a coach. That's got to feel pretty great, and knowing Kelly is coming back for Season 15 is music to my ears.
Despite this season's flaws, Kelly has been a great addition to the panel. She's brought a whole new energy with her, and it would make sense to get rid of some of the other coaches to make way for newer additions.
Okay, what are your thoughts on Brynn winning the whole thing? Was someone else robbed?
Does the show need some big changes?
