"I'm extremely proud of Jeff!" Kelly said. "I couldn't be more proud of him. I hope he takes everything he's learned and puts that all into his music."
Kelly acknowledged that after Alex and Sierra were announced as the winners, "There's nothing you can say in that moment. I know exactly what the moment felt like so I just wanted him to--whatever he was feeling, he's allowed to feel that way." We hope Jeff wasn't feeling too down, but we bet Kelly's Christmas gift cheered him up a bit.
"I got him a guitar, and it's really pretty!" Jeff's 32-year-old mentor told us. "I wanted us to have something connected and music is the thing that connected us. It took me an hour to pick it out! He can use it live when he plays at his gigs."
So which guitar did Kelly finally choose? "She got me a Martin guitar," Jeff said. "I got her a picture and she got me a guitar."
But that's not all. "The note that came with the guitar means as much to me as the guitar does," Jeff told us. "I love Kelly with all my heart, she's one of the greatest people I've ever met in my life."
