After deliberating, the panel agreed ... Evvie was the winner! As Diddy said, "I wanna make a legend."
After Diddy revealed that Evvie was the winner, the Memphis native shared her emotional reaction, fighting through tears after her family joined her on stage to celebrate. She said, "I just thank God for this moment, because I've wanted it for so long. Thank y'all so much."
Not only will Evvie's career launch with the help of the judges, not only does she get a recording contract with Republic Records, but she will also become iHeartRadio's "On the Verge" artist; an artist development program supporting the winner with airplay across iHeartMedia radio stations nationwide. This program has helped launched the careers of artists like Sam Smith, Fifth Harmony and Nick Jonas, among others.
Congratulations to Evvie!
