Chronology

The fourteenth season of the American reality The Voice premiered on February 26, 2018, on NBC with new coach Kelly Clarkson and returning coach Alicia Keys joining Adam Levine and Blake Shelton.[1]

On May 22, 2018, Brynn Cartelli was crowned the winner of The Voice. With her win, the fifteen-year-old became the youngest winner in the show's history.[2] Sawyer Fredericks at sixteen was the youngest previously.[3] With her victory, Kelly Clarkson became the first new coach to win on her first season, and overall, the third female winning coach, behind Alicia Keys and Christina Aguilera. Additionally, runner-up Britton Buchanan became the highest-placing artist who advanced via an Instant Save, following Joshua Davis of season eight and Chris Jamison of season seven, who both placed third.[2]

Coaches and hosts[edit]

The coaching lineup changed once again for the fourteenth season. Adam Levine and Blake Shelton returned as coaches, making them the only members of the coaching panel to be part of all fourteen seasons. Miley Cyrus and Jennifer Hudson were replaced by new coach Kelly Clarkson, who was Team Blake’s battle advisor in the second season and key advisor for the thirteenth season. and Alicia Keys, who returned after a one season absence and was participating in her third season. Carson Daly returned for his fourteenth season as host.[4]

This season a new feature, the Block, was added during the Blind Auditions. This allows the coaches to block one coach from getting an artist the coach turned around for.[5]

Also, Season 14 introduced a Save button that allowed a coach to save an artist they just eliminated during the Knockouts Round. However, if another coach also pressed his or her Steal button, the contestant could then decide whether they wanted to go to a new team or stay with their coach.[1]

This season's advisors for the Battle Rounds were Julia Michaels for Team Adam, Shawn Mendes for Team Alicia, Hailee Steinfeld for Team Kelly, and Trace Adkins for Team Blake.[6]

The Top 8 performed on Monday, May 14, 2018, with the results following on Tuesday, May 15, 2018. This weeks theme is "Duet Medley Songs".[11] In the semifinals, three artists automatically moved on to next week's finale, the two artists with the fewest votes were immediately eliminated and the middle three contended for the remaining spot in next week's finale via the Instant Save. iTunes bonuses were awarded to Kyla Jade (#2), Britton Buchanan (#3), Brynn Cartelli (#4), Kaleb Lee (#5), Pryor Baird (#7) and Spensha Baker (#10).[12] In addition to their individual songs, each artist performed a duet with another artist in the competition, though these duets were not available for purchase on iTunes.

With the elimination of Rayshun LaMarr, Adam Levine no longer had any artists remaining on his team. This is the first time since the fourth season that he had lost his entire team prior to the finale, and the third time overall, the first time being the third season. In addition, with the advancement of Brynn Cartelli to the finale, Kelly Clarkson became the third new coach to successfully get an artist on their team to the finale on their first attempt as a coach, the second being Alicia Keys, who coached Wé McDonald all the way to the finale of the eleventh season, and the first being Usher, who coached Michelle Chamuel all the way to the finale of the fourth season. This also marked the first time ever that two female coaches were represented in the finale.

The Final 4 performed on Monday, May 21, 2018, with the final results following on Tuesday, May 22, 2018. This week, the four finalists performed a solo cover song, a duet with their coach, and an original song. iTunes bonuses were awarded to Britton Buchanan (#1 and #10), Brynn Cartelli (#3, #5 and #6), Spensha Baker (#4) and Kyla Jade (#9).[13] Buchanan's "Where You Come From" and Cartelli's "Walk My Way" are the only songs that charted #1 on iTunes.

This is the first time that an artist who won the Instant Save in the semifinals did not finish in the last two spots in the finals, with Britton Buchanan finishing 2nd. With Britton Buchanan and Brynn Cartelli making it to the Top 2, this marked the first time in which the final results came down to two artists who have neither represented Blake Shelton nor Adam Levine. This is also the first time that the final results came down to two artists coached by two female coaches, with Buchanan representing Alicia Keys, and Cartelli representing Kelly Clarkson.
