Nice going, kid.
Cartelli was 14 when she was cast for the singing competition. Her 15th birthday was last month.
On Tuesday, the singer got another chance to celebrate ― this time a victory with Kelly Clarkson, a first-time coach on the program and original winner of another talent show by the name of “American Idol.”
“OH MY GOSH I AM SO HAPPY FOR HER HODA!!!!!” Clarkson wrote of Cartelli to “Today” show host Hoda Kotb in a tweet late Tuesday.
Cartelli, also the youngest finalist, earned the first-place title in viewer voting after two hours of non-competition performances.
Cartelli teamed with Julia Michaels in a medley of the songs “Issues” and “Jump.”
It was Michaels who co-wrote “Walk My Way,” the original song performed by Cartelli on Monday’s first phase of the finale.
Britton Buchanan, coached by Alicia Keys, was the runner-up. The other finalists, Kyla Jade and Spensha Baker, coached by Blake Shelton, were eliminated earlier in the finale.
