For Sawyer Fredericks, it’s all over but the voting… For NBC-TV’s singing competition, “The Voice,” it’s all over but the big announcement of the winner, which comes at 8pm on Tuesday night (May 19) during the season finale results show.

Now it’s up to you…

Let’s see now, on Monday night’s (May 18) live finale of the actual singing competition, the Local 518’s fave Fultonville farmboy duetted with his coach Pharrell Williams on the sweet but lightweight vintage Seals & Crofts nugget, “Summer Breeze.”

Then he dug into “Please,” a soulful song by Ray LaMontagne, who just happens to be Sawyer Fredericks’ main musical influence.

Then he wrapped up Monday night’s show with his final performance by delivering a damn solid knockout rendition of Neil Young’s “Old Man,” which only proved to underscore Fredericks’ wise-beyond-his-years magic.

Voting in the competition continues until the deadline of 12noon on Tuesday (May 19)…

And not that anybody’s asking, but here are my predictions:

1. Sawyer Fredericks
2. Koryn Hawthorne
3. Meghan Lindsey
4. Joshua Davis

NOTE: Proctors’ GE Theatre in Schenectady is hosting a big-screen viewing party for Tuesday’s final results show at 8pm. Doors open at 7:30pm.

And Reel Seafood in Albany is honoring Fredericks with a new specialty cocktail, the Sawyer Bowler, comprised of gin and ginger ale. “It’s like a traditional Shirley Temple/Roy Rogers in honor of Sawyer (who is only 16!) but with a spike of gin,” the restaurant spokesman explained.
