This season of live shows on "The Voice" started with a technical glitch, and on Tuesday, they ended with one as well!

Host Carson Daly revealed at the top of the hour that the iTunes results were taken out of the final equation for calculating the winner after Josh Kaufman's rendition of "Set Fire to the Rain" was mistakenly listed as an album instead of a song, which subsequently made it harder for fans to find and purchase. The malfunction generated heavy outcry on social media Tuesday, but Carson assured viewers that not including the iTunes numbers did not affect the final result.

The two-hour finale was bloated with performances from the likes of OneRepublic, Justin Moore, Ed Sheeran, Alabama, Robin Thicke, Tim McGraw, Coldplay as well as a few hilarious segments centered on the coaches, such as the Usher-centered featurette moderated by none other than Robin Leach and our "favorite" Adam Levine-starring montage.

In the last five minutes of the broadcast, Carson and the three final contestants got down to business to announce who won. Coming in third place was Christina Grimmie, the 20-year-old YouTube star from Marlton, N.J. from Adam Levine's team.

Coming in second place was ... Jake Worthington, the 17-year-old country singer from La Porte, Texas, on Blake Shelton's team. His second-place finish means 38-year-old Indianapolis, Ind., native Josh Kaufman is the Season 6 winner of "The Voice"! As soon as Josh is announced as the winner, he and Jake embraced in a long hug on stage. And his coach, Usher, was equally emotional celebrating his first win in just his second season on the show.

TVGuide.com readers correctly predicted the outcome for Tuesday's night results show. Josh led with 46 percent of the votes, Jake came in second with 29 percent of the votes, and Christina followed closely with 25 percent of votes.

"I can't even talk," Jake told Carson as the credits rolled. "I'm overwhelmed. I'm surprised. I'm happy. I'm relieved."
