‘The Voice’ Names Trio ‘Girl Named Tom’ Winners Of Season 21
NBC’s The Voice aired its finale last night, and coach Kelly Clarkson‘s trio Girl Named Tom was named the winners, with Team Blake’s Wendy Moten being named as runner-up.
Along with Moten and Girl Named Tom, this season’s finalists included Paris Winningham from Team Blake, and Jeriksha Maple from Team Legend.
Girl Named Tom is the first group to win the smash-hit competition series. They are a sibling group comprised of Caleb, 26, Joshua, 24, and Bekah, 20. The trio is from Pettisville, Ohio originally, and was homeschooled with a heavy focus on music.
The siblings put dreams of being doctors on hold when their father was diagnosed with terminal cancer, but later formed Girl Named Tom in 2019. They sang “Helplessly Hoping” by Crosby, Stills & Nash in their Blind Audition for the show, earning an impressive four-chair turn and getting their pick of the coaches.
Girl Named Tom were fan favorites and considered frontrunners for much of their run on the show, consistently impressing the judges and advancing through fan votes along the way as well. They also garnered 8.9 million total views between all their YouTube clips, outperforming the other contestants.
On Monday night’s episode, Girl Named Tom wowed with classic covers of “Baby Now That I’ve Found You” by The Foundations and “The Chain” by Fleetwood Mac.
The trio’s covers from The Voice are performing strongly on iTunes, with their renditions of Joni Mitchell’s “River” and “The Chain” both hitting #1 on the iTunes Top 200 chart. Their self-released album Hits From The Road is also currently on iTunes Top Albums chart, which is a historic first for acts on The Voice. It’s clear that Girl Named Tom has tons of momentum after their show run, and is nearly certain to see plenty of success beyond The Voice.
This victory marks the fourth time coach Clarkson has guided an act to victory. She is second only to Blake Shelton, who has coached nine total acts to victory over his 10-year run on the show.
Watch Clarkson join Girl Named Tom for their finale performance of “Leave Before You Love Me” by Marshmello and The Jonas Brothers below.
