Season 25 of The Voice is officially in the books! New champion was crowned and made The Voice history by giving Reba McEntire her first victory as a coach.

Tuesday night’s The Voice finale was a 3-hour affair jam-packed with star-studded performances, a Voice coach reunion, and performances from the Top 5 finalists and their coaches. Rookie coaches Dan + Shay were looking for their first win with their lone finalist, Karen Waldrup. Reba McEntire, also a first-time coach, was hoping to secure her spot in Voice history with a win from either Asher HaVon or Josh Sanders. Returning coach John Legend, who has spent nine non-consecutive seasons in a coach’s seat, was hoping Bryan Olesen or Nathan Chester would sin so he could repeat the success he had in 2019 when his protege, Maelyn Jarmon, won.

The results were read and Karen Waldrup placed 5th, followed by Nathan Chester in 4th and Bryan Olesen in 3rd. This left both of Team Reba’s finalists, Asher HaVon and Josh Sanders, vying for the title, guaranteeing her a win in her first-ever season as coach.

The winner was revealed to be Asher HaVon!

Reba was clearly happy and emotional to see both of her finalists as the Top 2. When Asher Havon’s name was read as the winner, Reba appeared to be soaking in the moment and allowed Asher his moment on stage. She humbly accepted congratulations from her fellow judges before making her way to the stage to hug her team member.


It came as no surprise that the reigning Queen of Country emerged victorious alongside Asher HaVon to claim The Voice Season 25 crown. Reba’s years of experience and unrivaled expertise were no match for her fellow judges. Reba fans will be thrilled that the “Fancy” singer will return to her coach’s chair next season.

Reba is the only current coach returning for Season 26. Chance the Rapper, John Legend, and Dan + Shay will be exiting The Voice. NBC shared the coaching lineup for Season 26 earlier this month. 7-time coach, and one-time winner, Gwen Stefani will be coaching once again. Rapper Snoop Dogg and legendary crooner Michael Buble will make their inaugural appearance on the reality singing competition.
