'The Voice' Winner Chloe Kohanski Never Really Thought She'd Win

Addison Agen

The American television singing competition "The Voice" has already crowned its victor in Chloe Kohanski - a 23-year-old from Nashville, Tennessee, and a member of Team Blake.

"I'm here to win "The Voice" with a country artist", Cyrus announced, as she tried to persuade Marlow, a 40-year-old Tennessean who called himself "country as corn bread", to join her team. Shelton and Jennifer Hudson both swooped in to offer Kohanski a spot on their teams, and Kohanski chose Shelton.

This makes Blake Shelton a victor of six total championships as a coach for the show - which is also the record for most championships by any coach for "The Voice" thus far.

Luckily, thanks to a special rule added in the fifth season, the other coaches get one shot to "steal" the artist who loses the knockout.

"I'm gonna work my hardest to make sure that I actually put out music", she told USA TODAY.

Kohanski had a roller coaster of a journey throughout her time on The Voice.

In 2013, Cyrus reached the top of the Hot 100 for the first time in her career with this second single from her fourth studio album "Bangerz". People, they literally worked like dogs (to vote for me), just because they love traditional country music. Chloe went on to win the vocal talent contest.

Kohanski stated in the press conference following the competition that she certainly did not expect to take home the grand prize. "I'm very excited that this is just a catapult into what is a very creative process for me". Several of her songs - including Foreigner's "I Want to Know What Love Is" and Bonnie Tyler's "Total Eclipse of the Heart" - topped the iTunes charts.

"The record company just needs to give her the platform". I truly think Chloe can go on from here and become really the first superstar. A live collaboration of "White Wedding" with Billy Idol was one of her final performances on the season 13 finale.
