Danielle Bradbery walked away with the crown from The Voice season 4 finale which made her the youngest winner in the singing competition’s history. Her win gave Blake Shelton his third straight victory on the show, but she’s ready for the next step after beating out runner-up Michelle Chamuel and the third-place finishers in the Swon Brothers.
“I definitely got a feel of [stardom] throughout this whole journey, [and] I’m just ready for whatever gets thrown at me,” she told Us Weekly after winning it all. “I’m bracing myself and I’m just really excited.”
With a bright future ahead, Bradbery has credited Blake Shelton for his support while pushing her to be the best on the show.
“Blake is a really smart and caring person,” she added. “I definitely got to know him really well throughout this whole thing and I know he does not give up and he pushes you to do what you love and he just has your back the whole way.”
Danielle Bradbery was locked in a heated finale that was up for grabs, while many believed Michelle Chamuel would take home the crown. She fell just short as Bradbery stole the spotlight in The Voice finale that brought in a record 15.3 million viewers.
The win for the 16-year-old country artist was well-deserved no matter how close the voting was and she thanked her family for their support through it all when speaking to Us Weekly.
“They’ve been by my side since the beginning … forever,” Bradbery said about her family. “And they are just so proud of me and it has definitely brought everybody closer and all they can say is ‘I’m so proud.'”
With it all said and done, she now plans to return home to relax though she’s already considering relocating.
“I’m definitely going to go home first because I want to sleep in my bed,” she said about her next step, “but I would definitely put a lot of thought into [relocating].”
After winning The Voice, will Danielle Bradbery transition well as a country singer to the professional level?
