Gwen Stefani secured her first win as a coach on NBC’s The Voice as her final team member, 15-year-old Carter Rubin, was crowned the winner of Season 19.

Rubin is the youngest male winner in the history of The Voice.

He took home the title following Monday night’s performance of Miley Cyrus’ “The Climb” and his new original song, “Up From Here.” Rubin also took the stage during Tuesday’s finale to perform “You Make It Feel Like Christmas” alongside Stefani.

Rubin consistently impressed throughout the season, often bringing Stefani to tears with his impressive vocals. He auditioned with Lewis Capaldi’s “Before You Go,” earning a two-chair turn from Stefani and John Legend.

This marks Stefani’s first win in five seasons on The Voice.

Team Legend’s John Holiday placed fifth, Team Kelly’s Desz finished in fourth place, Team Blake’s Ian Flanigan placed third and Team Blake’s Jim Ranger came in second.
