Who came second on The Voice 2021?
Among the finalist for season 21 of The Voice were Girl Named Tom, Jershika Maple, Paris Winningham, Hailey Mia, and Wendy Moten.
The show’s runner-up this season was 56-year-old Memphis, Tennessee native Moten, who many believe was robbed of the first-place victory.
Despite a loss, the Team Blake singer was able to wow the judges with a performance of Whitney Houston’s “How Will I Know” and a personalized version of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.”
“I am absolutely at a loss. After all of these weeks talking to you. After every one of these things that you do. I’m running out of great things to say about you. Then, you go and do something like that. That is one of the greatest live vocal performances I have ever heard,” said Blake Shelton, who was also seen begging America to vote for Moten, adding “We’ve never seen anything like you on this stage in 21 seasons.”
John Legend later called Moten’s performance “perfect” and “flawless.”
