The couple got away with a one million dollar prize and a record contract with Sony.
The two performed “Say Something” on Thursday after finding out that they were the winners and they could hardly finish the song due to their emotions.
“I was like, ‘Man, this is going to be okay.’ But then the song started and all those blue lights in the audience, and I don’t know. It just really got me,” Kinsey said in an interview with People after the show. “It was really, really overwhelming. Then when everyone ran out, I lost it.”
For her part, Sierra kept going a little longer but she was soon overwhelmed too.
“That’s when I lost it,” she said. “In my head I was like, ‘Dang, I’m the one wiping his tears!’ And then everyone came out, and I was like, ‘Wait, we really did win!’ ”
“When we were kind of just engulfed in a sea of white, all the white outfits and stuff, and Restless Road was bawling in our arms, and I’m bawling in Colton [Pack]’s arms, it was so emotional. It was so cool, though. That was honestly probably one of my favorite moments of all time,” Alex added.
As for what they’re planning on doing next, the pair revealed they will be heading to Los Angeles after the holidays to record their album.
“Since I met him four and a half years ago he’s had an album coming out. So now it’ll actually come through,” Deaton said, before telling Kinsey: “I was waiting for you!”
