We interrupt our series on opera plots to bring you a special news bulletin: For the first time ever, my favorite from The Voice blind auditions has actually won!

Of course, I would have preferred to see Mia and Kimberly in the finale (along with Sawyer and Meghan) instead of Koryn and Joshua, but I’m beyond thrilled that the wise-beyond-his-years teenager came out on top.

While Sawyer’s performance of Neil Young’s “Old Man” might have epitomized his style, my favorite performance of his is Lynyrd Skynyrd’s “Simple Man” from the Top 6 show:

Congratulations, Sawyer!
