The latest season of The Voice debuted on Monday night, and the final performer, 15-year-old, homeschooled farmboy Sawyer Fredericks gave Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera, Pharrell and Blake Shelton a lesson in how to re-invent a song. The long-haired, chapeau'd teen, who says he's influenced by Ray LaMontagne and Creedence Cleerwater Revival, sang his haunting version of the country-folk classic "Man of Contstant Sorrow," displaying a mature musicality. All four panelists turned around for him, and he chose Pharrell, because as homeschooley as he is, he's still markets himself pretty well on the Internet, especially YouTube


March 17 Battle Round Update: We picked this kid from the start,and he didn't let us down in the Battle Round, even though he had some stiff competition in Noelle Bybee. The song: Creedence Clearwater's "Have You Ever Seen the Rain." And, of course, Sawyer won the round.

Bottom line: Just hand the trophy to him now -- with his musical ability, pretty boy looks and dapper hat, he's got in this the bag.
