Reba McEntire and Team Reba’s Jacquie Roar set the stage ablaze with a cover of Wynonna Judd’s “No One Else On Earth” during the The Voice finale on Tuesday evening (Dec. 19). 

The pair joined forces to cover the 1992 chart-topper during the star-studded show. Joined by a live band, the country artists had fans on their feet as they delivered a powerful rendition of the song. Sporting coordinating black ensembles adorned with fringe, they commended the stage in front of the live audience. 

McEntire and Roar began their performance on a set of risers and then made the way down to the main stage. As smoke filled the background, they began to interact with the live members as they belted out the lyrics.

Wynonna is no stranger to The Voice. This season, the Country Music Hall of Famer appeared on the show to serve as the Mega Mentor. She joined coaches Reba McEntire, Gwen Stefani, Niall Horan, and John Legend to mentor the remaining contestants before the Knockouts.  

When the news was announced, Reba and Wynonna shared a joint post on Instagram discussing their time on set together.     

“I love her being on The Voice,” Reba says in the clip. “We’re neighbors in Tennessee and we have to get out here in LA to see each other,” she later quipped. 

Wynonna admitted that Reba’s presence on the show played a role in her decision to participate.

“It’s one of the reasons I decided to do this show because you’re here and I wanted to work with you.” she stated. 

In addition to performing with Roar, Reba also took the stage alongside fellow finalist Ruby Leigh to perform the Brenda Lee classic, “Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree.”

These performances were part of the two-night finale, which also featured special guests Earth, Wind & Fire, who performed a medley of hits from their extensive catalog spanning a whopping five decades. Keith Urban made a special appearance to deliver his chart-topping “Blue Ain’t Your Color,” which had now amassed over 1 billion streams. AJR performed a mash-up of “Bang!” and “Yes I’m a Mess” from their new album, and Tyla sang her Billboard Top 10 hit, “Water.” Additionally, Dan + Shay, who will make their debut as coaches on the next season of The Voice, made a special appearance to perform “Bigger Houses,” the title track of their latest album. 

Jelly Roll was set to perform, however, he was unable to appear as he was sick.
