Who Won ‘The Voice’ Season 8? Sawyer Fredericks From Team Pharrell

Season 8 has comes to a close on NBC’s hit TV series The Voice and the winner has been announced. After a nail biting finale with four finalist lining the stage, host Carson Daily kept everyone on edge as he brought the quartet down to just two. In the end, it was the shy, 16 year old farm boy from Upstate New York, Sawyer Fredericks who was crowned champion of NBC’s Emmy Award-winning musical competition series.

Sawyer was the youngest contestant on The Voice this season. Joined by his parents on stage while he sang his final song, the long haird young artist remained rather composed during the celebrations.
