Baker, a 24-year-old aspiring singer from San Antonio, had earned chair turns from Shelton and Kelly Clarkson during the audition, in which she sang 'Blackbird'. She picked the famous country singer as her coach.

Although her performance was incredible, Baker failed to get the championship.

Brynn Cartelli, who was coached by Kelly Clarkson, seized the top spot. At 15 years old, she's the youngest The Voice champion to date.
