Curly Sue has won THE VOICE.
Congratulations to former child star Alisan Porter, who surprised…well, no one by winning season 10 of the NBC singing competition.
Porter, 34, represented #TeamChristina.
All four finalists performed fro America’s votes on Monday evening.
The mother of two likely sealed her win with a showstopping performance of “Somewhere” from the Broadway musical WEST SIDE STORY.
On Tuesday night’s finale, Porter beat beat out Hannah Huston (#TeamPharrell), Laith Al-Saadi (#TeamAdam) and Adam Wakefield (#TeamBlake).
Porter rose to fame in the title role of the 1991 John Hughes movie about a homeless girl and her older companion (Jim Belushi) who must rely on scamming people to get by.
After the film’s release, Porter admits she struggled for years with drug and alcohol addition, but has been clean since October 2007.
“I have retired Curly Sue, she is dead!” the singer declared moments after stepping off stage. “I am now the girl who won THE VOICE. I would like you all to know. I’ve waited 30 something years for that! She’s dead!”
THE VOICE returns in fall 2016 on NBC.
