'The Voice' declares a Season 6 winner

Josh Kaufman is the season six winner of NBC's "The Voice." 

Along with the title of "The Voice," Josh earned a $100,000 prize as well as a recording contract with Universal Records.  Josh's win gives his coach Usher his first win, making him the only coach besides Adam Levine and Blake Shelton to have a contestant end up on top.  

The Indianapolis, Indiana native had anything but an easy run on "The Voice."  Originally on Team Adam, he was actually eliminated from the Battle Rounds when he faced off against Delvin Choice over "Signed, Sealed Delivered I'm Yours."  Adam may have let him go early on, but Usher picked him up and stuck with him to the end. 

Josh beat out his fellow finalists Jake Worthington of La Porte, Texas and Christina Grimmie of Marlton, New Jersey.  Jake ended the season in the runner-up position, while Christina came in third.  However, there is a bright side to Christina's loss.  At the top of the show, her coach, Adam Levine, announced that if she didn't pick up the win, he'd sign her to his record label.  



Josh, Jake and Christina all took the stage Tuesday night.  Apart from performing alongside acts such as Robin Thicke, Alabama and Ed Sheeran, the finalists also reunited on stage with contestants that had been previously eliminated.  Among the other stars to perform were Tim McGraw, Coldplay, Justin Moore and OneRepublic.  

Congratulations to Josh!
