Spoiler alert! The following reveals the winner of The Voice Season 20. Please stop reading if you haven't watched the results yet!

The Voice wrapped its 20th season by crowning a new champion on a night that was full of superstar performances and finalists' duets with their coaches. On the season celebrating the tenth anniversary of The Voice, it all came down to five artists: Kenzie Wheeler for Kelly Clarkson, Rachel Mac for Nick Jonas, Victor Solomon for John Legend, and Cam Anthony and Jordan Matthew Young for Blake Shelton.

In the end, it was 19-year-old Cam Anthony who took the top prize, and his coach Blake Shelton had huge words for his artist, as the cowboy earned his eighth win in his 20 seasons as a coach.

I think you being on this show and giving us the chance to be a part of your journey, I think it's changed the show forever, and we've been needing that. We're 20 seasons in, and here you are, so I want to say thank you for being here.

Blake Shelton had previously said Cam Anthony "could be the first superstar that we launch off this show," drawing the ire of some fans who argued the success of previous contestants. But Shelton didn't backtrack. In fact, he doubled down, then tripled down, repeating the "superstar" title over the entirety of the live shows. Check out Anthony's finale duet with his coach, performing "She Drives Me Crazy."

After Cam Anthony's dedication performance in Part 1 of the finale, Blake Shelton addressed the package The Voice had run honoring him as the only coach to sit in the big red chair all 20 seasons of the show. Blake Shelton said having Anthony on his team for this anniversary season was part of something bigger.

Imagine how I feel after they just ran that package of being on the show for 20 seasons, and on the 20th season, God put this young man in my life here on The Voice that may change everything for this show. I do believe that, and I want people out there to know the only thing bigger than Cam's talent is his heart and his mind, and you just saw it there on stage.

Cam Anthony often drew the praises of all four coaches, earning standing ovations regularly and making John Legend jealous of the choices he made on his Knockout Round performance of “Feeling Good” — a song the EGOT winner himself sang at Joe Biden’s presidential inauguration.

With Season 20 of The Voice in the books, fans will have to wait awhile before watching more artists take the stage for Season 21. NBC is looking at shifting to one cycle per year going forward, while the competition show up until now has aired two seasons per year.
