Many singers tried out but only one could win season four of The Voice.
NBC’s hit reality singing competition’s current season came to a close last night (June 18) in a star-studded finale results show that included performances by Pitbull with original coach Christina Aguilera, Bruno Mars, Cher and more. It also included the crowning of this season’s winner. So who won?
16-year-old country singer Danielle Bradbery beat out the competition to become the winner of season four of The Voice. She becomes the youngest winner in the history of the show and its second female winner. Bradbery’s win also gives her coach, Blake Shelton, his third win in a row. Shelton led former Alicia Keys backup singer Jermaine Paul to victory in season two and helped former Hey Monday lead singer Cassadee Pope score a win in season three.
In the runner-up position was Team Usher‘s Michelle Chamuel. Michelle’s quirky style and captivating, emotional performances made her a favorite in the competition. Michelle’s second place standing means she bested another one of Blake’s acts, The Swon Brothers, who came in at third place.
The Voice will return for season five with the original panel of coaches (Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera, Cee-Lo Green and Blake Shelton) this fall.
