Wendy Moten makes Team Blake proud with her performance of “Over The Rainbow” by Patti LaBelle.

Last night, Wendy Moten’s performance on “The Voice” left viewers speechless. Her rendition of Patti LaBelle’s “Over the Rainbow” felt beautifully timeless, just like the classic song. Singing alongside multiple cellists and violinists, the arrangement allows her voice to shine through.

The Team Blake contestant is a fan favorite. With over 180,000 views on YouTube in less than 24 hours, viewers are reacting to Moten’s angelic voice.

“Uh I’m going all 10 votes on Wendy and not looking back. Girl Named Tom and everyone else will be fine and have amazing careers. But this woman DESERVES THIS TITLE. She is THE VOICE,” the top comment reads. Over 600 users have liked this post.

“Wendy Moten giving us some Patti, Whitney, Chaka, and Aretha all in one. I’m here for it!” another fan writes.

This final performance shows Wendy Moten’s potential as an artist. Whether she wins “The Voice” or not, I believe she is at the start of a lasting career.

Who Will Win ‘The Voice’ Season 21?

Fans will find out who will win this season of “The Voice” tonight! Honestly, the final performances from last night were all so strong. It is hard for me to place my bets on just one artist.

Jershika Maple’s performance of “Rolling in the Deep” was stellar. This is a difficult song for any singer to attempt, and she does so with a strong belt. The emotion shines through, which is something I really admire about the rendition. Team Legend is proud!

Girl Named Tom’s performance of “The Chain” by Fleetwood Mac is another standout. The harmonies are top-notch, and I always appreciate how each member of the group trades off vocals. I think this band could take home the title.

Finally, Hailey Mia’s rendition of Billie Eilish’s “idontwannabeyouanymore” is soulful. I think this is a good song choice for her. I wish there was a bit more movement and crowd interaction, but Mia looks like a pop star. It may not be a bold song choice, but her fans enjoy her version of the Eilish classic.

These performances are my Top 3 standouts from last night. In looking at all of the performances, I still think that Girl Named Tom will take home the title for Team Kelly. I would also love to see Jershika Maple win the prize for Team Legend. She has the strongest voice in the group, in my opinion. Her heart shines through when she sings, and I believe she is deserving of the prize. I would not be surprised if each of the Top 5 contestants received management and label offers.
