The Voice season 19 finale airs Wednesday, Dec. 16 at 9 p.m. ET on NBC.

Sit down in your big red chair because it's almost time to watch The Voice 2020 finale. Season 19 is crowning a winner tonight, with coaches Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkson, John Legend and Gwen Stefani on hand to cheer their team members to what they hope is victory.

The Voice 2020 finale features five finalists: Carter Rubin, 15 (Team Gwen); Desz, 30 (Team Kelly); Flanigan, 30 (Team Blake); John Holiday, 35 (Team Legend); and Jim Ranger, 38 (Team Blake). They gave some of their best performances all season on Monday night's show. But only one will be named the season 19 winner.

This edition of The Voice has been different from seasons past due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. There's no studio audience, the coaches sit farther apart and host Carson Daly also keeps his distance from them and from the contestants.

But some things haven't changed. The coaches still bickered over the singers they wanted on their teams, jokingly trash-talked each other and encouraged their teams to sing their hearts out. 

Now, the finale is here. So, who will win? According to TV Line, the frontrunner is the angelic-sounding teen Carter Rubin. He'd give Gwen her first win as a coach.

Here is everything to know about how to watch The Voice 2020 finale online.
