Blake Shelton did it again. His team, represented by Danielle Bradbery won season 4 of The Voice last night. This is a three-peat for the country singer.
It came as no surprise really since the 16-year-old from Texas had such an impressive run starting with the blind auditions. She got stronger and stronger as the season went on.
What will talented Danielle do now? According to EW, she said, “I definitely would love to have Blake included in everything. The music, I want to make my own song and… Oh man I’m just so excited for whatever comes.”
With her powerful voice, which makes her sound much older than her actual age, she won not only the American public’s heart but that of her coach Blake Shelton, host Carson Daly, and the rest of the coaches.
Speaking with reporters after the finale, a very proud coach commented on the win:
“She’s never changed throughout this competition. She’s always remained Danielle. Shes a 16-year-old girl. I hope that everybody gets a chance to meet her someday because you’ll know the same things that I know, that her concerns right now are now that this is over, ‘Can I go back and hang out with my friends for a week and have summer together’ you know what I mean? That’s how real of a human being she is and that’s what I love about her the most.”
Shelton said that he honestly did not know how the show would end after wrongly predicting the winner in past seasons. However, he said this is not about him.
“Danielle Bradbery, and I’ve said this on the show, I think might be the most important artist to ever walk across The Voice stage because we’ve seen some artists come and go who’ve had record deals before, who have done some things before. Danielle Bradbery may be the first person we’ve actually discovered here on this show.”
