Sammy Colon is voicing his excitement…
The 32-year-old Puerto Rican singer has been crowned the winner of the second season of Telemundo’s La Voz.
Colon, a member of Carlos Vives’ team, not only won the highly coveted trophy. He also takes home a $200,000 cash prize and a recording contract with Universal Music Group.
After Telemundo paused production on the show due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the grand finale, which aired Sunday night, comes less than a month after the network resumed the show with coaches Alejandra Guzmán, Vives, Luis Fonsi and Wisin, and the remaining 28 contestants to kick-off “Los Enfrentamientos” or Cross Battles.
Ultimately nabbing the most audience votes, Colon takes the title, followed by finalists Jose Class (Team Fonsi), Sugeily Cardona (Team Guzman), and Andrea Serrano (Team Wisin).
“Thank you to everyone who voted at home,” Vives said during the show. “Sammy is very deserving of this title. Thank you for believing in this boricua.”
Colon dedicated his win to all the 80-plus contestants who formed part of the competition.
Colon is the second winner of La Voz U.S., following the winning voice Jeidimar Rijos of Team Fonsi on the inaugural season in 2019. Colon also became the second Puerto Rican to win the competition.
