La Voix/The Voice Crowns Ludovick Bourgeois

With 50% of the vote among the four finalists, 24-year-old Ludovick Bourgeois of Lorraine, QC was crowned the 2017 winner of The Voice. Among guest appearances by a number of big stars, the grand finale program saw performances by Florida Georgia Line and La Voix alumni in celebration of its fifth year. While hockey fans in Edmonton were enjoying some Peking roast duck, Edmonton’s Ruth B. was performing on the stage in Montreal. Ludovick’s win is the first time a protégé of Éric Lapointe was crowned champion. The son of Les BB’s Patrick Bourgeois, Ludovick was deemed to have inherited the gift from his family. Through the competition, Ludovick performed hits by Bon Jovi and Journey. His performance of Train’s “Drops of Jupiter” won him an invitation from the band’s frontman to join the players on stage at a summer concert in Toronto. Ludovick Bourgeois’ name now sits alongside former champs Valérie Carpentier, Yoan Garneau, Kevin Bazinet, and Stéphanie St-Jean.
