Season 13 of The Voice came to a close last night when contestant Chloe Kohanski — formerly of Team Miley Cyrus and eventually an all-star on Team Blake Shelton — took home the big win. Better yet, this rising star didn't waste any time in releasing a music video for "Wish I Didn't Love You."


The 23-year-old Nashville native — looking ultra-glam — is pictured in two settings in the video: a bright and fabric-filled room as well as in a darker setting on a luxurious golden couch. The song itself is quite slow and ballad-like, allowing you to soak in every note, each heartfelt word, and appreciate the raspiness of Kohanski's stunning voice.

"I never had a moment where I thought I have this in the bag," Kohanski told People, despite the fact that she had many memorable moments on the show such as Cyndi Lauper's "Time After Time" and Blondie's "Call Me" as two stand-out examples. "It instilled a lot of confidence in me. No matter what I was walking away with I have a sense of who I am."

It was one performance, however, which Kohanski says was a turning point for her on the show. That performance, of course, was when she covered Bonnie Tyler's "Total Eclipse of the Heart." It was in this moment that Kohanski discovered a more confident side of herself.

"I got to the chorus and I saw something in my face change," Kohanski said. "I stopped thinking and started performing. I started this show with not a shred of self-confidence. It has changed the way I see myself and other people. I remember walking off and thinking like, 'That was a moment I will never forget.'"

Shelton believes Kohanski will be a "superstar" and the young rocker is already looking forward to releasing a record and is "excited that this is just a catapult into what is a very creative process."
