This family man's life is about to change.

"It's been a lot of sacrifice to be away from [my family] and to go through this whole process not only for me but for them," Josh Kaufman told PEOPLE shortly after winning the sixth season of The Voice Tuesday night. "It definitely makes it all worthwhile."

The father of three – who was a member of local band The New Etiquette and worked as an SAT tutor in Indianapolis before coming on the show – is excited to help create a life for his loved ones "doing what I love."

"It's kind of a win-win," he added.

The Voice: The Top Three Pull Out All the Stops in Their Final Performances

Originally posted 05/20/2014 06:25AM

It came down to the wire on The Voice Monday as the top three artists – Christina Grimmie, Jake Worthington and Josh Kaufman – delivered knockout performances.

Kaufman closed out the show with applause that went on so long and so loud that the coaches could barely comment. Singing Adele's "Set Fire to the Rain," the Indianapolis father of three made a case for himself as a masterful soul singer.

"Oh, my," his coach, Usher, enthused, barely audible over the cheers. "Throughout this whole process you have wanted to represent soul and that is precisely who and what you are."

The Voice's Top Three Artists are Revealed

Originally posted 05/14/2014 07:00AM

With just one week to go until the finale, the Top Five artists on The Voice learned their fate Tuesday in a semifinal elimination that had the male contestants celebrating and the female singers forced to perform one more time for the last Twitter instant save of the season.

Early in the show, the first save of the night offered a genuine surprise: Host Carson Daly revealed Texas teen Jake Worthington would move on to next week's finals.

The decision had coach Blake Shelton beaming – and probably helped him forget about the pile of manure Adam Levine poured on his precious truck the previous evening.

A popular Disney hit re-imagined as a rock song was not a problem for Kat Perkins, who turned the catchy tune embraced by fans worldwide, "Let It Go," into a head-banging anthem on Monday night's The Voice semi-final.

"You murdered it," said an enthusiastic Usher of Perkins's powerful take on the song from Frozen, which she dedicated to the Keller children for whom she served as nanny, and who watched adoringly from the audience.

"I don't know what I can say anymore. It doesn't get better as far as vocals are concerned," noted her coach Adam Levine.

The Voice: Adam Levine Is 'Confused' as Three Top Singers Are Eliminated

Originally posted 05/07/2014 06:15AM

Some of the strongest artists on The Voice found themselves in the bottom four Tuesday night, which confounded the coaches and forced those singers to perform one more time for the lone Twitter save.

After weeks of deftly avoiding elimination, veteran coaches Adam Levine and Blake Shelton found themselves in a vulnerable position following Monday night's Top Eight performances when Usher's lone artist, soulful family man Josh Kaufman, and Shakira's only remaining singer, Massachusetts country singer Kristen Merlin, were the first artists to be deemed safe.

A short time later, host Carson Daly revealed Team Adam's teenage dynamo Christina Grimmie also made it through, along with fellow teen and self-professed redneck Jake Worthington of Team Blake.

The Voice introduced its two newest coaches – Pharrell Williams and Gwen Stefani, who teamed up to perform "Hollaback Girl" – on Monday night as the eight remaining artists performed.

Team Adam Levine star Christina Grimmie followed last week's genre-bending Drake cover with another original moment on Lil Wayne's "How to Love."

The audience would not stop cheering. "You should be soaking this up right now," Blake Shelton praised. "You look and sound like a superstar up there."

And then there were eight.

The Voice's live elimination show whittled down two artists from the Top Ten Tuesday with the help of America – or at least the Twitterverse – and determined whether Adam Levine and Blake Shelton still have the secret formula for success.

The show kicked off in newsy fashion when host Carson Daly announced that Gwen Stefani will join The Voice's coaching panel next season (just in case you hadn't already read Christina Aguilera's Tweet.) He also revealed that the No Doubt frontwoman will join fellow newbie coach Pharrell Williams onstage for a performance next Monday.

Yet the real news of the show was attempting to figure out who wouldn't be appearing on stage next week, and that became increasingly clear as the show soldiered on. Read on to find out more.
