The 11th season of The Voice is down to four finalists, including former country star Billy Gilman, who shot to stardom as an 11-year-old in 2000 by becoming the youngest artist to have a Top 40 single on the country chart.
During last night’s episode—Part I of the Season Finale on Dec. 12—Billy, 28, dug deep for an emotional solo performance of Frank Sinatra’s “My Way.” As Billy held back tears toward the end, he received a standing ovation from the audience, as well as three out of the four judges (only Blake Shelton remained seated).
“Everything this guy has been through was just poured out from his heart on that stage,” said Adam Levine, Billy coach. “How do you not feel like you just won The Voice just now?”
Part 2 of the Season Finale airs tonight (Dec. 13) on NBC at 8 p.m. ET with live results for the four remaining finalists: Billy Gilman (Team Adam Levine), Josh Gallagher (Team Adam Levine), We McDonald (Team Alicia Keys) and Sundance Head (Team Blake Shelton).
