The Philadelphia native has been a fan favorite from the moment he turned three seats during the blind auditions with Sam Smith’s Lay Me Down.

He garnered even more votes after his immersive performance of Cynthia Erivo’s Stand Up and Bon Jovi’s Wanted: Dead Or Alive on Monday’s first finale show.

Seeing him sing, Blake, 44, announced that God had brought Cam into his life, vowing that his performances would change ‘everything’ for The Voice.

Cam has been known before: a video in which he sang Bruno Mars’ When I Was Your Man went viral when he was 11; by the age of fourteen he had played in the White House and signed with Dr. Dre.

On Tuesday, he and Blake Fine sang Young Cannibals’ She Drives Me Crazy, a song the young artist had never heard before.

His win allowed Blake to reclaim his title as ‘King of The Voice’ after his fiancé Gwen Stefani, 51, won season 19 last year. He previously predicted that Cam would be the first “superstar” to emerge from the NBC show.

Blake emphasized his dominance in a fun show segment, got massages, and showed off the parking lot, office, and megaphone he’d earned from previous wins.
