Team Usher Victorious as Josh Kaufman Wins ‘The Voice’

Usher has scored No. 1 songs and albums, plus sold-out tours across the world. But before Tuesday, one trophy was missing from his mantle: a team win on The Voice.

The R&B songs man marked his second season on the singing competition with an overall victory as Josh Kaufman scored the win in the show’s sixth season. Related: ‘The Voice’ Enlists Pharrell for Season 7

Kaufman, a soul artist from Indianapolis and father of three children, scored his win after rattling off renditions of Adele‘s “Set Fire to the Rain,” Stevie Wonder‘s “Signed, Sealed, Delivered, I’m Yours” and “Every Breath You Take” from the Police, a duet he performed with Usher.

Jake Worthington, a country artist and (naturally) part of Blake Shelton‘s Team Blake, took the runner-up spot, while Christina Grimmie of Adam Levine‘s team finished third. Fourth judge Shakira did not have a singer advance to the finale.

With his victory, Kaufman garners a recording contract with Universal and $100,000 in prize money — plus a car from series sponsor Kia.
