Chris Blue and his coach, Alicia Keys, formed an unbreakable bond during their time together on season 12 of ‘The Voice.’ So, after they found out they won the show on May 23, they could not stop singing each other’s praises, and it was so sweet!
It’s been quite a journey on season 12 of The Voice for Alicia Keys, 36, and Chris Blue, 26! During the Blind Auditions, Alicia was the only coach left with no artists on her team, and she was extra picky while trying to fill that final spot. The R&B superstar sat through a bunch of auditions before she heard what she was waiting for: Chris. The two rode it out all the way to the end, and Chris was eventually named the winner on May 23.
“Chris really has the uncanny ability to somehow, no matter how nervous he may be — I mean, who wouldn’t be nervous under that pressure — no matter how much he might be battling internally like we all do, somehow he gets on stage and he delivers in a way that is not only emotional, but powerful,” Alicia told HollywoodLife.com and other media outlets after The Voice finale. “He shows all sides of him and I think that is what he did on this show and I am really proud of that!”
Meanwhile, the 26-year-old is equally as in awe of his coach as she is of him. “She is truly a special human being,” he gushed. “She has been beyond phenomenal and one thing I tell people everywhere is that the life you feel on television and the pureness and the love that you feel when she smiles, you just feel that everything is going to be okay. She knows what you are going through.” He added, most importantly, “To call her a coach is great, but it is better to call her a friend.” SO sweet!
HollywoodLifers, do you think Chris and Alicia will stay close? Should they work together?!
