Ep. 27 | Aired Dec 17, 2013

A NEW (VOICE WINNER) HAS COME Celine Dion and Tessanne Chin sing "Love Can Move Mountains."


In addition to the winner scoring a recording contract, the final three singers also won a Kia vehicle announced during their backlot tour on a stop to Whoville.

Celine Dion made another appearance as she sang "Incredible" with Ne-Yo. Will and Aloe Blacc teamed up to sing "Wake Me Up."

Tessanne called back James Wolpert, Olivia Henken, Grey, and Preston Pohl for a group performance of Sam and Dave's "Hold On I'm Comin.'" On the tail end of this rendition was a sight to behold as Blake Shelton attempted to learn the "naked chicken dance" from Nic Hawk.

The best and most surreal pairing of the night was Lady Gaga and Christina Aguilera singing “Do Want You Want." In addition to the eye-popping sight of two divas sharing the stage, was Lady Gaga's gold-gilded shoulder pads that looked as if they could sturdily hold up the universe. “This is the first time we’ve ever met," Christina told Carson. Best performance of the season?

As the final three give their coaches their thank you's and goodbye's, Carson Daly announced "one of your lives will change forever....."

A shocked and tearful Tessanne rejoiced in her win, with her mom and husband in the wings. She sang her debut single "Tumbling Down" amidst a confetti storm and all that well-deserved applause.

Congratulations, Tessanne!
