Fast forward to Leatherwood getting a shot on “The Voice” – during the blind audition, he was able to turn three chairs but ultimately ended up going to Team Blake. “He’s (Blake Shelton) one of a kind, and he’s a great human being who really likes me,” Leatherwood said. Shelton just might have that magic touch because Leatherwood’s win marks a record-breaking ninth victory for Shelton, who will unfortunately be stepping away from the hit NBC singing competition series for the first time in 11 years following the next season.
“It’s just so humbling to know that people love Bryce Leatherwood,” Leatherwood told PEOPLE. “People love what I stand for. People love my music and how I sang. It took me by surprise that America chose me. I just think my goal in life is to make people happy, and America made me happy today. I’m very excited to be ‘The Voice’ champion of season 22.”
