The Voice winner this year is 16-year-old Danielle Bradbery. She has been crowned the season 4 champion, making her the youngest contestant ever to win ‘The voice’.
She beat runner-up Michelle Chamuel and the Swon Brothers who finished in third place. In an emotional moment straight after the results were announced Danielle stuttered: ”I don’t even know – I’m so, so thankful – I’m sorry, I’m speechless.”
Earlier on, before The Voice winner was announced Colton, one of the Swon brothers said warmly:
“I would gladly lose to either one of them … not just because they’re awesome talents, but because of their hearts. The Swon Brothers love you very much. You know that.” There was something genuine and heartfelt about his words.
Following hugs and kisses from Blake, the voice winner was left on stage to sing “Born to Fly” by Sarah Evans. She could barely control her emotion as is clear when she bursts into laughter mid-song as confetti rains down on her.
Before the results were announced, The Voice winner’s youngest star said: ”I came from singing in my room to being in the Top 3 and it’s crazy. I told my high school I would come back home with the win for them.”
In his final confessional before the results Blake, the winner in both Seasons 2 (Jermaine Paul) and 3 (Cassadee Pope), said: ”I know that Danielle and The Swon Brothers want this so badly that it’s going to make my year to see them standing in the winner’s circle.”
The Voice winner finale featured a bunch of big-name performers. The gorgeous Christina Aguilera kicked the night off with Pitbull performing their hit “Feel the Moment” followed by the Florida Georgia Line and Nelly who sung ‘Cruise’.
The young star Danielle was clearly thrilled to perform on the night with one of her favourite country singers, Hunter Hayes. They hit the stage for a roof raising duet of Hunter’s “I Want Crazy.” Before Danielle was announced as The Voice winner, she took to the stage with Team Adam’s Amber, Caroline Glaser and Sarah Simmons who performed a lively rendition of “All-American Girl” by Carrie Underwood.
Usher said: “I’m already proud of her to even be this far. “I could think of nothing sweeter than for me to be able to stand on stage and greet her as the winner of ‘The Voice.’ ”
