Minnesota singer David finishes third on 'The Voice'

Author:

Minnesota's Nicholas David Mrozinski finished a disappointing third among the three finalists on the finale of the singing competition reality show "The Voice" Tuesday night.

The winner was 23-year-old pop-rock singer Cassadee Pope, who will be awarded a recording contract. (There were consolation prizes – the three finalists were given Kia cars, the Pioneer Press reports.)

At one point on the show, Mrozinski, who went by Nicholas David on the show, said both his late grandfathers told him to follow his dreams.

There had been lots of praise for the 32-year-old crooner all season, especially from his coach on the show Cee Lo Green. On Tuesday's show, the Eagan soul singer performed "Cruisin'" with Smokey Robinson in what show host Carson Daly said "might be the coolest duet we've seen all year."

Here's David, one more time:
