Season eight winner Sawyer Fredericks will make his return to "The Voice" Wednesday to perform his new single, "Take It All" (8 p.m., NBC)
As a member of Team Pharrell on the two-time Emmy Award-winning musical competition series, Fredericks not only won season eight, but also set a record for the first artist to have 14 songs in the iTunes Top 200 singles chart in one week. His songs were downloaded nearly 1 million times on iTunes while he was on the show.
Fredericks grew up on an 88-acre farm in upstate New York. His shyness belies an intense empathy and vibrantly robust voice honed by performing weekly at a local farmers market and cutting his own independent debut locally. Upon his debut on "The Voice," he quickly enchanted audiences everywhere.
So far this season, the Monday and Tuesday editions of "The Voice" are averaging a 3.7 rating, 12 share in adults 18-49, according to "most current" results from Nielsen Media Research, to keep NBC the No. 1 network in 18-49 on both Monday and Tuesday nights. "The Voice" is television's No. 1 alternative series this fall in every key ratings measure - adults, men and women 18-34, 18-49 and 25-54, plus total viewers.
