One theme that bubbled away through the season had focused on Shelton, and whether the outgoing nine-time winning coach would leave the reality TV show on a high note.

For this swansong, Shelton had twice the opportunity of his rival coaches. On Tuesday, he performed with Noivas on Michael Buble’s “Home,” and with Grace West on Blake’s own hit “Lonely Tonight.”

Would he, could he do it again and guide an artist to glory? Flat answer, no.

As the 23rd season wrapped, it was Niall Horan’s teammate Gina Miles who took the trophy.

The 19-year-old resident of Nashville, TN, broke hearts with a rendition of “Nothing Compares 2 U,” Prince’s classic 90s number made popular by Sinead O’Connor, and a cover of Taylor Swift’s “Style.”

When she dueted with Horan on Billy Joel’s “New York State of Mind,” The Voice viewers had seen enough.

Horan, the debutant, enjoys the rub of the green. Blake, who had a near miss in his quest to crack double figures, might call it the luck of the Irish.

“I’ve been wrestling with this for a while, and I’ve decided that it’s time for me to step away from The Voice after Season 23,” Shelton said in a statement. “This show has changed my life in every way for the better, and it will always feel like home to me. It’s been a hell of a ride over these 12 years of chair turns, and I want to thank everyone at The Voice from NBC, every producer, the writers, musicians, crew and catering people; you are the best.”

Shelton’s teammate Grace West finished second and Kelly Clarkson’s singer D.Smooth completed the podium.

The victorious Miles collects a six-figure cash prize and a recording contract with Universal Republic Records. Check out the big reveal below.
