Pastor Todd Tilghman wins Season 18 of 'The Voice'

On Tuesday night, downtown Meridian was filled with cheers and tears of joy as Meridian's own Todd Tilghman won "The Voice" competition.

Each of the coaches-Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkson, John Legend and Nick Jonas-still have a contestant from their team in the running, and when the live finale kicks off on NBC on Tuesday night at 9 p.m. ET, viewers will finally learn how America voted when one artist is named the victor.

Tilghman, who won fan favor throughout the season as a pastor and father of eight kids, pulling ahead of competitors Micah Iverson, Toneisha Harris, Cam Wess and Thunderstorm Artis, has nothing but praise for his coach Shelton.

Tilghman was, oddly enough, the first person to audition for The Voice this season.
