If you pinpointed Jermaine Paul as the singer who'd be named "The Voice" this season, good call: The former back-up singer for Alicia Keys now has a recording contract of his own with Universal Republic, as well as $100,000.
"Winning would mean... the world to me," a nearly speechless Jermaine said before it was revealed that he was the winner.
The reveal was reality-show-slow, with Team Christina's Chris Mann coming in fourth place, Team Adam's Tony Lucca in third, and Team Cee Lo's Juliet Simms being the runner-up, just four percentage points behind Paul.

With this being finale week on "The Voice," we figured the final live performance show would have its dramatic moments.
But some viewers may not have expected for Christina Aguilera's ongoing tiff with her fellow former Mouseketeer Tony Lucca to have reared its head once again on Monday's show.
Aguilera already accused Lucca of getting a leg-up on the competition thanks to his celebrity support, most notably from another former "Mickey Mouse Club" star, Justin Timberlake (which Lucca cheekily responded to with a rendition of Britney Spears' "Baby One More Time" - 'cause, you know, she's yet another "Mickey Mouse Club" alum.)

The coaches (and the voters) had some tough decisions ahead of them on Tuesday night's final elimination show on "The Voice."
First up, Christina Aguilera couldn't bear to choose between the operatic Chris Mann and the very original Lindsey Pavao. But it was easy to see that Chris' rendition of "Ave Maria" on Monday was going to bring in the votes, and that's exactly what happened.
I grew into a big fan of Lindsey's, but Chris is definitely Team Christina's best shot at winning it all.

I've got to hand it to Adam Levine: The man is a mad genius.
Adam encouraged Tony Lucca - two weeks after he was harshly criticized by former "Mickey Mouse Club" member Christina Aguilera - to sing a song from another fellow Mouseketeer this week: Britney Spears' "(Baby) One More Time."
Tony got a huge reaction from the crowd when he performed it on Monday's show, and it was no surprise when he was saved by Adam that night, and again by America's vote on Tuesday night.

You can tell it's getting tougher and tougher on the coaches as we head toward "The Voice's" season finale.
Tuesday night's show came on the heels of Monday's elimination of two contestants, who were chosen by Christina Aguilera and Blake Shelton, with no input from America's vote.
It's pretty clear that Christina's choice to boot gospel singer Jesse Campbell - after an emotional performance of Beyonce's "Halo" - provoked some anger among "Voice" fans. I personally felt that he had the best chance of winning among the others on her team.

She showed up seemingly out of nowhere at the start of this season of "The Voice."
There she was, perched in judge Cee Lo Green's arms whenever he spoke to the camera about the auditions for his team: a cat named Purrfect.
