Season 23 Wrap: Big Fun and a Fond Farewell

The Voice threw an amazing Season 23 Wrap/Blake Send-off Party. Congratulations to winners Gina Miles and Niall Horan!

Working with Gina on “The One That Got Away” for her Blind Audition drew me to the unique and distinct sound of her voice. What a joy to watch her move through the show with grace, elegance and heart. Another highlight of Season 23 was getting to work with two formidable talents, Noivas and D. Smooth. Both were voted to advance to the Finale, as artists in the season’s Top 5. Our sessions for their Blind Auditions were potent, spiritual, and their artistic growth blew me away. To both of them I say, Please continue doing what you love to do, because we love it!

And then there was the Cassadee Pope reunion! What a delight to see Cassadee after 11 years! I worked with Cassadee on “Torn” for her Blind audition on Season 3, my first season with The Voice (watch it here). You’re still rockin’ it, Cass!

Right before this photo was taken, I had the opportunity to tell Blake that if I could give him just one gift, it would be for him to know how warmly people speak of him when he isn’t around to hear it. Blake Shelton, you are beloved!

Blake has had an amazing run over the course of his 12 years and 23 seasons on The Voice. From winning a record nine titles on the show, to working with some of the biggest names in music, to meeting his wife Gwen Stefani, it seems there’s nothing Blake hasn’t done throughout his time on The Voice.

It’s been my thrill through the years to glean from his wisdom, experience, and his hilarious, gut-busting sense of humor!
