Jarmon, 26, who is deaf in one ear, earned a four-chair turn during the Blind Auditions after wowing all the judges. She was the first member to join Team Legend and ultimately handed him the trophy that will join the Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony awards on his mantel.
The Texas native beat overwhelming odds: She was the sole singer standing in the way of Blake Shelton, who had a 75% chance at the title with three of his singers in the finale.
When the votes were tallied, Gyth Rigdon finished in second place; Dexter Roberts came in third; Andrew Sevener in fourth.
The two-hour season finale felt like a concert, with more than a dozen guest performances and post-competition duets with the Top 4 and their musical heroes.
Jarmon and Sarah McLachlan offered a stunning duet of “Angel.” Roberts and Toby Keith brought the heat with “That’s Country Bro,” while Rigdon and Hootie & The Blowfish tackled “Hold My Hand.” The finalists may have been singing with their idols, but they held their own with the professionals and looked right at home onstage.
Some fan-favorite contestants who were eliminated throughout the season got another chance in “The Voice” limelight.
Mari Jones and Kim Cherry lit up the audience with a soulful rendition of Lizzo’s “Good as Hell,” before LB Crew, Shawn Sounds, Jej Vinson, Kalvin Jarvis and Domenic Haynes tore into Bobby Brown’s “My Prerogative,” channeling a boy band in their colorful suits and in sync (no pun intended) choreography.
Betsy Ade, Celia Babini, Lisa Ramey and Presley Tennant gave the boys a run for their money with their own rocker girl group. They performed a fiery rendition of Stevie Nicks’ “Edge of Seventeen.”
