The predictions for season eight of the Voice turned about to be quite accurate. The winner, Sawyer Fredericks, had steadily captivated the hearts of viewers since the blind auditions. Similarly, the runners up, Meghan Linsey and Joshua Davis, had also been slated as front-runners of the show.
Fredericks, the youngest of the group, had an awkward teenager charm that endeared him to many. With the perfect combination of contemporary and folk, he managed to win the hearts of judges and viewers alike. His performances also got stronger and stronger each week, earning him the #1 spot on iTunes multiple times and making him the man to watch for the season.
Seasoned singer and ex-Steel Magnolia band member Meghan Linsey also grew to be a crowd favorite as she continued to give great performances that kept her in the minds of voters weekly. Before the live finale, her original song was #2 on iTunes, right after Fredericks'.
