[SPOILER ALERT: The following story reveals the winners of The Voice. Read at your own risk.]

It was the season that turned Purrfect the Cat into a household name, made opera cool again and transformed a Mickey Mouse Club friendship into a bitter reality TV feud, and Tuesday night marked the end of the second season of The Voice. Who won? Read on to find out.

One singer from each team remained: Tony Lucca from Team Adam Levine, Juliet Simms from Cee Lo Green's group, Chris Mann of Team Christina Aguilera and Team Blake Shelton's finalist, Jermaine Paul.

At the end of the two-hour show, host Carson Daly announced that Mann came in fourth. More shocking was the third-place singer — Lucca -- a fan and media favorite because of his Mickey Mouse Club roots and his sparring with fellow MMC-er Christina. Simms followed in second place, and Daly named Paul, the former Alicia Keys back-up singer, the winner of The Voice. "Thank you! I just want to say thank you to everyone that voted for me ... everyone that supported from the beginning," the 33-year-old from Orange County, Calif., said. "Nobody but Jesus, man!"

Paul closed the show with an emotional performance of his winning song from Monday's final performance show, R. Kelly's "I Believe I Can Fly."
