Chloe Kohanski rules the list for a third week.

Following the season 13 finale of NBC's The Voice Dec. 19, finalists rule the top four spots of Billboard's Emerging Artists chart (dated Jan. 3).

The winner, Chloe Kohanski, leads the way at No. 1 for a third week, while second-place contestant Addison Agen rises 4-2; fourth-place finalist Red Marlow roars 10-3; and third-place finisher Brooke Simpson leaps 9-4.

The Emerging Artists chart uses the same formula as the all-encompassing Billboard Artist 100, which measures activity across multiple Billboard charts, including the Billboard Hot 100Billboard 200 and the Social 50. However, the Emerging Artists chart excludes acts that have notched a top 25 entry on either the Hot 100 or Billboard 200, as well as artists that have achieved two or more top 10s on Billboard's "Hot" song genre charts and/or consumption-based "Top" album genre rankings.

Kohanski rules as her original song "Wish I Didn't Love You" debuts at No. 5 on the Digital Song Sales chart with 53,000 downloads sold, according to Nielsen Music. The song enters the Hot 100 at No. 69, earning the singer her second and highest-charting entry on the tally.

Kohanski's cover of Kim Carnes' "Bette Davis Eyes" also debuts on Digital Song Sales at No. 13 (22,000 sold) and her duet remake of Roy Orbison's "You Got It" with Blake Shelton arrives at No. 45 (12,000). The latter song starts at No. 40 on Hot Country Songs, where Orbison's original reached No. 7 in 1989.

Kohanski also earns her first entry on the Billboard 200, as The Voice: The Complete Season 13 Collection enters at No. 64.

Agen's new No. 2 Emerging Artists peak is largely powered by her original single "Tennessee Rain," which debuts at No. 3 on Digital Song Sales (58,000) and No. 67 on the Hot 100, where it's her first entry. Agen also debuts her cover of Tim McGraw's "Humble and Kind" at No. 11 on Digital Song Sales (25,000), as well as "Falling Slowly," with Adam Levine, at No. 22 (19,000).

Marlow likewise earns his first entry on the Hot 100, as "I Pray" enters at No. 84. It also starts at No. 16 on Hot Country Songs, as it begins at No. 7 on Digital Song Sales (44,000).

Simpson, meanwhile, launches at No. 1 on Hot Christian Songs with her cover of "O Holy Night," powered by first-week sales of 28,000.
