Gina Miles has been crowned the winner of season 23 of The Voice on Tuesday, making coach Niall Horan a first-time winner!
Horan, 29, who joined the show this season and is set to return for Season 24, joined Gina on stage when the winner was announced.
During the show, Miles performed Billy Joel’s “New York State of Mind” alongside the former One Direction member, Horan.
The 18-year-old singer beat out Team Blake’s Grace West and NOIVAS, Team Chance’s Sorelle and Team Kelly’s D. Smooth.
The singer grew up in Paxton, Illinois, and later moved to Sacramento, California, to pursue a career in music.
Miles — who released her first EP, Who Are You, in 2022 — quickly caught the judges’ attention during her battle round performance of Bon Iver’s “Skinny Love.”
On Monday night, ahead of the finale, Miles said she wanted to make the best of her experience during the last show.
“I’m going to live it up no matter what happens because to me it’s not about winning, it’s just about the experience as it’s come along,” she said at the time. “For me, I never thought I would make it this far but I did. I want to be living my best life.”
To celebrate Blake Shelton’s final season, several familiar faces returned to the show, including Camila Cabello, Jennifer Hudson, Nick Jonas, John Legend and Adam Levine, who all previously coached alongside Shelton on The Voice.
