The Voice season 14 ended with 15-year-old Brynn Cartelli as the winner. Kelly Clarkson who was the first American Idol champ and now a part of the Voice coaching panel claimed her first win with Brynn, who was the youngest champion to date.
As reported by PEOPLE, Cartelli shared, "Kelly behind the scenes is the same way you see her on camera. She is hilarious. She’s really real and caring. I’ve always looked up to her and now that I can get advice from her, it’s incredible."
Clarkson added, "I’m gonna be Brynn’s big sis for life. One just because I love her parents. We would totally barbeque. She’s kind of stuck with me regardless if she desires it or not. I love being her friend, I love being her mentor and being her cheerleader."

The star-studded event saw the likes of Jason Aldean, James Bay, Big Sean, Florence + The Machine, Halsey, Dua Lipa and season 13 winner Chloe Kohanski performing on stage.
The youngest winner is a Massachusetts native and balances her love and passion for music with school and lacrosse.
Cartelli had to audition twice (once in New York and once in LA) before making it to the stage and getting a four-chair turn from the judges during the blind auditions. She revealed that she picked Clarkson as her coach because she had always been a huge fan of the 'Breakaway' singer.
"[Kelly has been] setting me up for a future after the show so that everyone has an idea of who I am as an artist so that the fans who followed me on this journey get what they deserve from me, which is a pop/soul style of music," Brynn shared.
