[FULL] "The Voice USA 2013 WINNER" "Dani
"The Voice" has crowned its winner: Danielle Bradbery is the Season 4 champion.
The 16-year-old country singer from Team Blake is the competition's youngest winner ever, beating out fellow team members The Swon Brothers, who came in third place, and runner-up Michelle Chamuel of newbie coach Usher's team to become Season 4's "Voice" winner.
"I"m so thankful," Danielle said after the final results were announced as tears filled her eyes and confetti fell on the stage. "I'm sorry. I'm speechless."
No one went home empty-handed, though: All of the finalists won cars, courtesy of Kia.
A very confident Blake -- who celebrated his 38th birthday on Tuesday and won both Season 2 (Jermaine Paul) and Season 3 (Cassadee Pope) -- said in his final confessional, "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."
"I came from singing in my room to being in the Top 3 and it's crazy," "Voice" winner Danielle said in her final confessional before the results came in. "I told my high school I would come back home with the win for them."
Earlier in the evening, younger Swon Brother Colton told Michelle and Danielle, "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." Michelle added that the other finalists "inspire [her] as people" as well and she's "very grateful and honored" to be part of "The Voice" Season 4.
"I'm already proud of her to even be this far," Usher said of runner-up Michelle at the start of "The Voice" finale. "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.'"
The two-hour "Voice" finale was chock-full of big-name performances, plus the three finalists and more Season 4 contestants. Pitbull and a newly-svelte Christina Aguilera, who will return with Cee Lo Green for Season 5 in the fall, kicked things off, performing their hit "Feel This Moment.
