‘The Voice’: Did Maelyn Jarmon deserve to win season 16 or was Gyth Rigdon robbed? [POLL]

Maelyn Jarmon won season 16 of “The Voice” on Tuesday over Gyth Rigdon in one of the closest votes in the history of the show. Dexter Roberts came in third while Andrew Sevener was fourth. Did Maelyn deserve to win “The Voice”? Vote in our poll below and then sound off in our comments section with your thoughts on the winner as well as your opinions of host Carson Daly and coaches Kelly Clarkson, John Legend, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton.

Maelyn was the lone woman in the Top 4 and the only artist coached by John. While this EGOT champ had served as a mentor in previous seasons, this was the first time he turned his hand to coaching. The three men still standing were all coached by Blake, who remains in the hunt for that elusive seventh win.

Maelyn came into the results show as the frontrunner, having earned the five-times vote multiplier based on the chart-topping streams on Apple Music of her solo songs from Monday’s finale. Of her three rivals, Gyth and Andrew landed a tune in the top 10 while Dexter was a surprising also-ran.
