Hootie & the Blowfish performed their 1994 hit “Let Her Cry” during the season finale of The Voice on Tuesday night.

The rock band, formed in Columbia and fronted by Charleston-born singer Darius Rucker, scored a Grammy Award for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal for the track in 1995.

The song reached No. 9 on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming one of the group’s three top 10 hits on the chart.


The group is about to kick off a new tour in support of the 25th anniversary of Cracked Rear View, Hootie’s debut LP that is still one of the top-selling records of all time.

THE VOICE SPOILER: New York City resident Maelyn Jarmon, 26, was crowned this season’s winner last night, delivering first-time coach John Legend his first win.
