The Voice fans crowned Cam Anthony the winner on Tuesday of season 20 - but it was also a special moment for Blake Shelton.

Blake has been a mentor on the show since its inception, and as he helped to coach Cam he has now won eight seasons, making him the coach with the highest number of wins.

"Cam, your artistry has shown through all season and your impact to this show will live on for a lifetime. Congratulations on the big win! Now time to celebrate!!!!!!!" Blake shared on social media after the show ended.

Cam was crowned the winner

Blake previously won with Jermaine Paul (Season 2), Cassadee Pope (Season 3) and Danielle Bradbery (Season 4).

He also won with Craig Wayne Boyd (Season 7), Sundance Head (Season 11) and Chloe Kohanski (Season 13), and Todd Tilghman (Season 18). 

Blake also took to the stage during the finale, as did his fiancee - and ex-mentor - Gwen Stefani.

The pair met when Gwen joined the show and they got engaged last year.

But The Voice coach recently revealed that he wasn't involved in any of the planning process for their upcoming nuptials.

Speaking to USA Today, the country singer joked that the couple's wedding would be pretty "classless" if he was in control.

"If I was picking our meal, it would just literally be everything fried," he said. "French fries, chicken tenders, you know, all of that stuff."

He went on to comment that he knew their special day would be "great" because of Gwen's decisions, adding that she was "having a blast".

Blake also revealed that he wasn't even in charge of his own wedding outfit, although he joked that he never picked his clothes, apart from when he wears caps and shirts for Zoom interviews. "So, nobody lets me pick clothes," he jested. "That's not a Gwen wedding thing. That's just in general."
