On Tuesday night, 15-year-old Brynn Cartelli was announced as the winner of The Voice season 14. She became the youngest winner in the series history and Kelly Clarkson couldn’t be more proud.
The first-time coach came out triumphant beating the reigning champion Blake Shelton, who got six titles under his belt for the last 14 seasons.
Clarkson and Shelton made a side bet earlier this year that if Clarkson wins, the country crooner will have to call her “Queen.”
“Don’t think I’m not waiting,” Clarkson told ET after the finale’s show. “I haven’t checked my phone but I’m a hold him to it.”
Clarkson isn’t holding on that he’ll actually do that. “He ain’t even gonna say it,” she said, laughing. “He ain’t gonna follow through.”
When it got down to Tuesday’s top 2, Cartelli ended up against Britton Buchanan (coached by Alicia Keys), making this the first time in The Voice history that both final contestants had female coaches.
“It was one of those things where we were like, regardless [of what happens], a female is walking out of here a winner,” Clarkson shared. “It was really Alicia and I’s goal just to beat the cowboys. So, success!”
The 36-year-old pop diva will be defending her crown against Shelton, Adam Levine and returning coach Jennifer Hudson for the next season of The Voice.
