In a list shared by " The Voice" on Twitter, former coaches, CeeLo Green, Shakira, and Bebe Rexha, were slated to return for the final episode of season 18. This drove fans wild with excitement.

One user wrote, "Bebe Rexha?" alongside a cute GIF which showed the singer clapping excitedly. Another fan also couldn't hide how excited he was when he commented, "Can't-Wait!!!".

A user portrayed his thrill by responding to the tweet with a GIF, which showed a puppet grasshopper clapping with so much excitement.

A fourth fan of the singing show who obviously could not wait to see Shakira's performance gushed about her love for the singer. She wrote,

"SHAKIRA respect, please. She Is a Legend."

By 9 pm on Tuesday, the season finale began, and fans were finally able to see their favorite ex-coaches appear on the show again. Apart from the former coaches, the current coaches, Blake Shelton, John Legend, Kelly Clarkson, and Nick Jonas, were also in attendance for the virtual episode.

As if their presence was not enough, the four coaches gave viewers a powerful rendition of "Let My Love Open The Door" alongside Shakira, Rexha, Green, and the five final contestants.

Even though the finale was different from past ones, fans were still given the same experience they would have gotten from a live studio show.

After all of the stunning performances, the time came for a winner to be announced. With all contestants surrounded by friends and family in their homes, the host, Carson Daly, announced Todd Tilghman as the winner. 

Todd, who was a member of "Team Blake" throughout the season, got immense support from the legendary singer. Right from the blind auditions, Shelton had somewhat predicted the contestant's win. After speaking about how much he loved his voice, Blake said:

"I think Todd is special, and I wouldn't be surprised to see him in the finals."

Although the episode was aired successfully, there were a few technical difficulties with Blake's microphone at some point.

However, it was impressive that there was a seamless combination of twenty-one live streams from across the United States, yet the show ran smoothly.

Tilghman's victory makes Blake retain his record as the highest winning coach in the reality show's history. With a total of seven wins, he is no doubt the undisputed champion of NBC "The Voice."
