It was a tough decision, but the judges have picked a final winner in KOTV’s Gimme the Mike contest.

6 In The Morning anchor LeAnne Taylor hosted the big show Monday night from the Cain's Ballroom, where the five finalists plus a wildcard contestant performed.

After each contestant performed, it came down to a tie. Gabriel Williams and Jason DeLong each got nearly perfect scores from the judges.

In the end, Gabriel was picked as the best of the best. Gabriel Williams: "A car. Braums ice cream, karoke machine, performance opportunities, and a weekend package to Branson, Missouri. It's just opportunities now to just go out and sing."

Gabriel will also get a cell phone and service from Cricket, prizes from Promenade Mall, and valuable recording time in the studio.
