Emotions ran high on Dec. 13 during the season 11 live finale of “The Voice,” as the four remaining contestants — Billy Gilman, Sundance Head, Josh Gallagher and Wé McDonald — waited patiently to find out who was named the winner.
But, at one point during the intense three-hour special, the stress that was weighing on everybody’s minds went away.

It all happened when Josh brought back former “The Voice” contenders, Austin Allsup and Brendan Fletcher, to turn out a scorching cover of Jason Aldean’s country smash “My Kinda Party.”
For their joint performance, the three males held electric guitars and sported matching leather jackets. Together, they busted out the signature guitar riff from the top of a staircase. Then, flames shot up in gigantic screens behind them as each singer took turns highlighting their vocals. After singing the “My Kinda Party” chorus in unison, Josh led the boys down the staircase, where they totally let loose. And, the audience cheered wildly!
Prior to their collaboration, Josh said, “‘My Kinda Party’ is just a good party song, and I’ve come to really know these guys, Austin and Brendan. We’re all fun-loving, good-time kind of people, and I want to bring that to the stage with these guys. That’s why I picked them for the song.”
“My Kinda Party” wasn’t the only song that Josh slayed during the show’s finale. He also joined forces with country music sensation Cam to duet on her breakthrough hit, “Burning House.”
Although Josh proved to be a standout on “The Voice,” he earned third place. He was beat out by Team Adam’s runner-up Billy Gilman and Team Blake’s fifth winner Sundance Head. However, with Josh’s talent, we’re pretty sure there’s a place waiting for him in country music.
“The Voice” will return to NBC in February 2017.
