16-year-old country singer Ruby Leigh was a standout star from the moment she auditioned for The Voice. Each week that followed, she wowed viewers with covers of songs such as LeAnn Rimes‘ “Blue” and Elvis Presley‘s “Suspicious Minds.”
Under the guidance of her coach, Reba McEntire, Ruby made it all the way to the finale. Her fellow finalists were Jacquie Roar of Team Reba, Lila Forde of Team Legend, Mara Justine of Team Niall, and Huntley of Team Niall.

The Voice finale aired across two nights. The finalists competed for the last time on Monday (December 18) and the results show was on Tuesday (December 19).
In Reba and Ruby’s case, they shared a fun and festive performance of Brenda Lee‘s “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree.”
After all of the performances were over, host Carson Daly started revealing the results:
Fifth Place: Lila Forde
Fourth Place: Jacquie Roar
Third Place: Mara Justine
That left Ruby and Huntley as the last two people onstage. After a commercial break, Carson returned to reveal that Huntley was the winner of The Voice!

After the finale, Ruby took to social media to congratulate Huntley on his win. She shared a quick post on her Instagram Story, which she has since deleted. Perhaps she didn’t want to spoil the results that early after the show.
Ruby said, “SO PROUD OF YOU@huntleymusic !! You deserve every bit of it!”
Ruby also spoke with KSDK News after the finale. Once again, she expressed how proud she was of Huntley.
She also shared how proud she was of herself:
“You know what, being on the first Team Reba we made it to the finale, top two. Being from Missouri, myself, it’s farther than anyone else from Missouri’s been on the show. So I’ve already set a record. And being a minor, being the last kid standing for the last few rounds is really insane.”
A huge congratulations to Huntley, Ruby, and all of the other Voice finalists! Head below to watch the video of Huntley’s winning moment.
