Usher is a very hot man of his word.

After promising to hit the kitchen in his underwear while campaigning for his Voice protégé, the smooth crooner posted an Instagram video and photo of himself frying eggs while shirtless.

"You guys kept up your end of the bargain, and now I guess I have to do my part," Usher, 35, says in the clip, stepping toward the stove to reveal his rocking body. "So, what would you like for breakfast? I prefer Tuscan eggs."

The sexy stunt began Monday, when Usher posted a Facebook status urging Voice viewers to vote for his team member.

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.

From Coldplay to Ed Sheeran, The Voice had plenty of star power on the season 6 finale Tuesday night. But ultimately, all eyes were on the three finalists, as they battled it out for the top prize.

Josh Kaufman of Team Usher, Christina Grimmie of Team Adam Levine, and Jake Worthington of Team Blake Shelton gave it their all throughout the season, starting at the blind auditions, where they belted it out on stage to win the hearts of their coaches.

But in the end, only one could be crowned the winner.

The Voice Coaches Sound Off on the Final Three

Originally posted 05/20/2014 01:45PM

With just a few hours left until a new Voice winner is crowned, the coaches and the top three, who performed Monday night, took a breather to reflect on what they appreciate most about one other.

"His eyes," Jake Worthington told PEOPLE about his coach, Blake Shelton. "Does that not turn you on?" he joked about his mentor's crinkly gaze.

In all seriousness, the country kid from Texas, who Shelton, 37, foresees is "going to breathe life back into country radio," has looked up to the "Mine Would Be You" crooner since before the show even existed.

"I never would've thought I'd be friends with him," said Worthington. "He's really just inspired me to want to stay true to myself."

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

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."
