"The Voice" Season 8 Finale: Who Will Win?

Following months of incredible performances, the fantastic four of season eight staked their claim Monday night why they should be crowned "The Voice."

Teenage powerhouses Koryn Hawthorne and Sawyer Fredericks from Pharrell William's team went head to head with big-voiced Meghan Linsey of Team Blake Shelton, and the smooth stylings of Joshua Davis representing Team Adam Levine.

The finalists took to the "Voice" Arena tasked with three performances, a solo cover, a duet with their respective coaches, and for the first time this season the four all performed original singles as well.

It's now up to America to decide and vote for who will win a recording contract with Republic Records, and ultimately, be named "The Voice."

Voting info can be found in the videos below, and is open until 12 p.m. ET Tuesday. Here, the season eight finale performances:

First up was Hawthorne, 17, with the James Brown soul classic "It's a Man's Man's Man's World." "You did it," said Coach Blake of the performance. "That performance right there proves why you deserve to be in the finale."

Linsey, a seasoned entertainer who was a Team Blake steal, performed her own original single "Change My Mind."

For the duet with his coach, Fredericks enlisted Pharrell for the 1972 Seals and Crofts' hit "Summer Breeze." Check out the video above.

"This isn't just you writing a song, this is you writing a fantastic song!" proclaimed Coach Adam of his charge's rendition of Davis' original single "The Workingman's Hymn."

16-year-old Frederick and his guitar took center stage for his original single "Please," by Ray LaMontagne. For Coach Adam, having an original song by an artist you admire was triumph in itself. "Dude, you win," said Levine. "That's the coolest thing. Game over."

Hawthorne was back onstage with her coach, Pharrell, to work it out with the Beatles' classic "We Can Work It Out."

Family-man Davis chose the Leonard Cohen classic "Hallelujah" for his other solo performance. A choice Coach Aguilera called "heartwarming" and "right on."

Coach Blake took a ride on the "Freeway of Love" alongside Linsey for her coach duet.

Davis and his coach, Levine, tackled the Paul Simon hit "Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes."

Hawthorne set the arena ablaze with her strident new single "Bright Fire." A visibly moved Coach Pharrell could only describe it as "so special."

Giving her big voice to the classic soul standard "When a Man Loves a Woman," Linsey drew praise from Coach Blake, who said if there were a performance to change the course of the night, it was that one.

 

For the final performance of the evening, Frederick took on the beloved Neil Young song "Old Man." Coach Pharrell said regardless of what happens Tuesday night, Fredericks is already "living the dream."

Vote now to make one performer's dream of becoming "The Voice" a reality, and find out who is the winner of season eight during the live reveal Tuesday starting at 9 p.m. ET on NBC.
