Who won The Voice season 22? We certainly knew entering the episode tonight that there would be a little bit of a debate over this. Why in the world wouldn’t there be? We’ve had a pretty compelling and competitive season so far, and we’re stuck with an interesting debate.
Without further ado, let’s get into it: Would America pick a non-country singer in Bodie on Blake Shelton’s team, or a country singer on a different team in Morgan Myles? Or, would they go the super-predictable route and give this to Bryce Leatherwood on Blake’s team? We’ve wondered a little bit of he and Brayden Lape would split the votes to a certain extent, giving us a somewhat-unpredictable order at the end of this. (Of course, we’ve thought that this would happen before and it didn’t.)
Given that season 23 is the final one for Blake as a coach, we could be seeing some of the country star’s fans already voting harder than usual as a far-in-advance farewell tour.
Who was the winner? Let’s talk controversy! Brayden finished in fifth pace, which left Omar Jose Cardona in fourth. Meanwhile, there was no real distinction between third and second place, as both Bodie and Morgan Myles fell into those spots. That meant that Bryce Leatherwood is the winner of this season!
The early reaction
Bryce did have a pretty good night and in that sense, we’re not shocked. Granted, this certainly is not going to help the assumption that this show is all about Team Blake or that country singers have a huge, inherent advantage over everyone else because of the demographics that watch.
