After quite possibly the longest 2 hours in the history of primetime network TV, Chloe Kohanski won season 13 of “The Voice.” The #TeamBlake member beat out Red Marlow, Brooke Simpson and Addison Agen to take home the trophy.
Before being crowned the winner, Kohanski got to sing with one of her rock ‘n’ roll heroes, the legendary Billy Idol. In a press conference after the show, when asked who she wants to sing with now she proclaimed, “Before I would have said Billy Idol, but I got to sing with him on the show (tonight). I would love to write with Blake Shelton and l would love to learn from Stevie Nicks.”
Kohanski is ready to get to work, “The first thing on my mind is working on a record. I think you should never stop learning and the coolest part of working with you is hearing a new perspective. I want to plan a tour and I’m thinking about visuals for that as well. I’m very excited that this is just a catapult into what is a very creative process for me.”
And as for her coach? Blake Shelton thinks Kohanski is the real deal, “The record company just needs to give her the platform. If they can really do that it’s going to be easy. If we can’t follow through with this thing, then WTF? I truly think Chloe can go on from here and become the first star that we’ve had come out of this show that can have some hit songs.”
Earlier in the season, after Shelton stole Kohanski from Miley Cyrus he called her “the most iconic voice” the show has ever had.
This is the sixth win in 13 tries for Shelton, the most of any coach on the show.
