UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. (KXAN) — Odds are the winner of NBC’s The Voice will have a Texas connection when season 17 wraps up Tuesday night.
Three of the final four contestants this season have Texas ties with one contestant calling Austin his home.
You can watch the The Voice season finale on KXAN starting at 7 p.m.
Ricky Duran, 29, is originally from Worcester, Mass., but is now an ATX native being coached by popular country singer Blake Shelton. Duran outlasted 12 other performers from Shelton’s team to reach the final four.
Rose Short, 34, is representing Killeen as the final contestant on Gwen Stefani’s team. Short worked as a corrections officer for eight years at a male, maximum-security prison before deciding to focus solely on music, according to her show bio.
Jake Hoot, 31, was born in Corpus Christi, but his parents moved shortly after his birth to the Dominican Republic for missionary work, according to his show bio. Hoot is leading the way for Team Kelly Clarkson.
