In an emotional and unforgettable tribute to country superstar Blake Shelton, The Voice pulled out all the stops during Tuesday’s live finale.

As Blake Shelton bid farewell to his role as a coach after an incredible 23 seasons and nine wins, the show surprised him with a star-studded ’80s medley led by the one and only CeeLo Green!

The stage was set on fire as CeeLo kicked off the performance with an electrifying rendition of iconic ’80s hits.

In a surprising twist, former Voice winners and members of Team Blake, including the incredibly talented Cam Anthony, Wendy Moten, bodie, and Chloe Kohanski, made surprise appearances, turning the medley into an unforgettable collaboration of musical greatness.

But the surprises didn’t stop there. Host Carson Daly paid tribute to Blake’s unmatched legacy by hanging his signature jean jacket from the rafters, symbolizing his reign as the GOAT (Greatest of All Time) of The Voice.

And let’s not forget the heartfelt messages that poured in from Blake’s fellow coaches, such as Camila Cabello, Jennifer Hudson, Nick Jonas, John Legend, Usher, and Pharrell Williams, who all celebrated his immense impact on the show.

As the night neared its conclusion, more former team members and winners like Cassadee Pope, Bryce Leatherwood, RaeLynn, Danielle Bradbury, Sundance Head, and Todd Tilghman took the stage for a soul-stirring performance of Green Day’s “Good Riddance (Time of Your Life).” Blake couldn’t hide his emotions as he was greeted by the familiar faces, exclaiming, “I don’t even know what to say! What the heck is going on?”

And the surprises kept rolling in. The icing on the cake was a personal message from none other than country music legend George Strait, who praised Blake’s remarkable run on the show and hinted at future collaborations on the road.
