The time we see the winner of ‘The Voice’ Season 19 is finally here as we enter the last episode of the singing reality show. Starting with a recap of all the performances from the previous episode, we also saw a special Christmas performance in the final episode from all the contestants this season.
Apart from these amazing performances, the show also got a special line-up of music heavyweights namely Dan+Shay, Lauren Daigle, Keith Urban, Pink, Lewis Capaldi, Florida Georgia Line, Nelly, Jason Derulo, 24K Golden, Iann Dior, Julia Michaels, and JP Saxe. Raising the heat, Nelly and Tyler Hubbard from Florida Georgia Line kicked off the evening with their hit single ‘Lil Bit’. The duo set the stage on fire with their unmatched chemistry.
Though the country rappers are one of the biggest hits of the year, the Internet was quick to react to their performance with mixed reactions. One user said, “It is hilarious to me that Florida and Georgia of Florida and Georgia Line fame are still feuding about politics and only one appeared on #TheVoice tonight alongside Nelly.” Another expressed, “@NBCTheVoice @Nelly_Mo @FLAGALine I'll show you my big wheel, we can have some fun!!!
