Blake Shelton’s Contestant Danielle Bradbery Wins The Voice

On Tuesday’s season finale of The Voice, 16-year-old Texas native Danielle Bradbery beat Michelle Chamuel and the Swon Brothers for the winning title. Bradbery was so emotional after her win that she struggled to finish her final performance on The Voice stage.

“I don’t even know right now. I’m so thankful. I’m sorry … I’m speechless,” she said.

Earlier in the night, Bradbery praised her coach Blake Shelton for his guidance throughout the season. “You’re an amazing coach and you’re an amazing person,” she said. “You taught me so much and I’m so thankful to have you in my life and I love you so much.”

This is Shelton’s third Voice win – his contestants Jermaine Paul and Cassadee Pope won season 2 and season 3 respectively.

“I think it’s the most important win we have had so far on The Voice because Danielle is the first winner of The Voice that had no professional experience in the past,” he told People magazine on Tuesday. “Her biggest performances ever were for her family at Thanksgiving.”

“People are just wrapped around her finger for a reason,” Shelton added. “God sprinkled just a little bit more on Danielle Bradbery than he did the rest of us and I’m just glad to call her a friend.”

Adam Levine is expanding his TV resume. The Maroon 5 frontman, who already stars as a coach on the reality TV singing competition The Voice, is reportedly set to make his acting debut on the FX show American Horror Story.

Entertainment Weekly reports Levine, 33, is in the final stages of negotiations with show bosses to play “a contemporary character and half of a couple called ‘The Lovers’” in the upcoming second season.

Few details on season two of American Horror Story have been released. Creator Ryan Murphy has confirmed the show will be filming at a new location with Jessica Lange, Zachary Quinto, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, and Lily Rabe returning to play a new set of characters. Season two is set to premiere this October.

Levine can be seen alongside Blake Shelton, Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green on the current season of The Voice.

Christina Aguilera has not been fired from the latest series of The Voice despite recent rumours.

According to realitytvmagazine.com a source close to the singer said, “She doesn’t spend time with her contestants like she’s supposed to. She doesn’t participate. She spends most of her time on set with her boyfriend.” However, NBC quickly issued a statement to deny the reports, with executive vice-president Paul Telegdy saying “There is absolutely no truth to the rumour.” The Voice first aired on NBC in April this year (2011) and became an immediate success and is now due to start its second season. Aguilera will appear on the show alongside fellow celebrity judges Adam Levine, Cee-lo Green and Blake Shelton.

The 30-year-old singer was born in New York and began her singing career at an early age whilst performing in The Mickey Mouse Club alongside future stars Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears and Ryan Gosling. She went onto release her self-titled debut album in 1999 and has so far released five further studio albums winning her four Grammy awards and a star on the Hollywood walk of Fame in the process. As well as selling over 50 million records worldwide the singer has also developed an acting career and starred alongside Cher in 2010 movie Burlesque which earned her a Golden Globe nomination for Best Song.
