Season 16’s “The Voice” winner was announced on Tuesday night. Maelyn Jarmon, from coach John Legend’s team, revealed that she not only won the competition but also had dinner with her coach and his wife.


After the season finale of “The Voice” John Legend, 40, and Maelyn Jarmon, 26, spoke to reporters in a press conference about the competition and winning. Jarmon happened to reveal that she wished to meet Legend’s family saying, "I have not met his family," adding, "Yet!"

Her coach took note of her wish and replied: "I gotta work on that." He then asked her: "When are you leaving town? Because we'll have a hangout session. We'll have your family over and we'll hang out."


Jokingly but hopeful at the same time, Jarmon announced: "That's on camera!" Speaking to the reporters she added: "You all have that."

“I can’t believe it! I finally get to meet Chrissy and the babies."

The young singer has since shared that the dinner date in Los Angeles is currently in the works. She said: “We’re in talks right now trying to solidify a plan to make that happen which is just crazy.”


Jarmon excitedly revealed: “I can’t believe it! I finally get to meet Chrissy and the babies. After all this time!” Chrissy Teigen and Legend have two children together.

Speaking about the planned dinner on Wednesday, Jarmon shared what she also hoped to gain from the get-together:

“I’m hoping that when I get that dinner, I [can ask my] questions about going into the future and how to do all this. We were just in show-mode for the whole season so it was very focused on the next performance and every song.”


She also revealed what she intended to do with her cash winnings. The singer stated that with the $100,000 grand prize she was going to use some of it to pay back her boyfriend Johnny Murrell for all of his support.


Jarmon explained:

“I’d really love to do a solo trip with my guy. We haven’t done that in a long time so I want to do that for sure and have some quality time with him because he has absolutely earned some of that. I’m going to be cliché, but Hawaii would be amazing. I’ve also thought about Ireland. Ireland looks beautiful, and I’ve always wanted to go.”


She credited Murrell, who’s also a fellow musician, for being “so incredible” throughout the ups and downs of the music competition. Jarmon confessed that being on “The Voice” often left them with little time to see or talk to each other.

Some of her winnings will go towards helping charities and causes that are important to her.

Jarmon had to battle it out with Blake Shelton’s three team members to win the title. She competed against Gyth Rigdon, Dexter Roberts, and Andrew Sevener during the finale.

Sevener came fourth, Roberts was third, and Rigdon was the runner-up.
