JOSH KAUFMAN NAMED CHAMPION OF "THE VOICE"

Popular 38-Year-Old Earned America's Top Vote and Excelled as Member of Team Usher

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - May 20, 2014 - Josh Kaufman was crowned champion of NBC's Emmy Award-winning musical competition series "The Voice" tonight, earning the grand prize of a recording contract and being named as the Voice for season six.

Kaufman, a 38-year-old from Indianapolis, was a member Team Usher. Follow him on Twitter at @IAmJoshKaufman.

A four-chair turnaround artist originally on Team Adam, Kaufman was stolen in the second round of battles by Usher after Adam Levine picked Delvin Choice to move on to the playoffs. Kaufman has been singing his entire life and supports his wife and three kids by playing local gigs and working as an SAT prep tutor. He is hoping his win on "The Voice" will allow him to stop tutoring and be a full-time musician to support his family.

The Monday edition of "The Voice" ranks as the season's #1 unscripted series on the Big 4 networks in adults 18-49, averaging a 4.6 rating, 13 share and 14.8 million viewers in "most current" averages from Nielsen Media Research through the season's first 33 weeks. "The Voice" has teamed with "The Blacklist" to make NBC's Monday the #1 lineup on the broadcast networks in regular-program 18-49 averages this season.

Tuesday's "Voice" is averaging a 4.3/12 in 18-49 and 14.1 million viewers overall and has boosted NBC's Tuesday to the third-best average for any broadcast network regular schedule this season in adults 18-49 through 33 weeks, behind only NBC's Monday and CBS's Thursday.

"The Voice" will return in the fall with coaches Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani and Pharrell Williams.

"The Voice" is a presentation of Mark Burnett's One Three Inc., Talpa Media USA Inc. and Warner Horizon Television. The series was created by John de Mol, who serves as executive producer along with Burnett, Audrey Morrissey, Stijn Bakkers and Lee Metzger.
