“The Voice” Winner Probably Won’t Shock You TonightBy: Amanda Crum - June 18, 2013
“The Voice” has gained strong audience favor during its last few seasons, and this one is no exception despite some changes in the judge lineup. But if fans are expecting to be blown away by the winner reveal tonight, they may be disappointed. It looks like judge and coach Adam Levine has already predicted who will be crowned champ during tonight’s broadcast, and almost everyone agrees.
Blake Shelton may as well have done the Babe Ruth point-in-the-distance homerun stance when he took on 16-year old Danielle Bradbery this season; she’s been a crowd favorite and a judge’s favorite, which is no easy feat. The young singer’s soaring voice handled “Born To Fly” with ease on Monday night’s episode and earned her praise across the board.
“What else can I possibly say? Your perfection is almost boring me at this point. It’s too perfect,” Adam said.
Her coach was a little more flattering.
“As your coach, I’d like to sit here and say coach-y type things, but at the end of the day … I’m one of the millions of people out there that you have wrapped around your finger,” Blake said. “Thank God that you came to ‘The Voice’ to debut yourself, because you are such an important person in music and I can’t say enough about you.”
Bradbery has been showcased throughout the episodes, closing out several of the shows with country hits, and that has worked in Shelton’s favor before; he’s won the last two seasons.
Levine begrudgingly gave in last night and predicted Bradbery to be the winner, saying, “The crazy thing about your voice is it’s just so unbelievably perfect and powerful. It’s one of the better voices I think I’ve ever heard live. … And I’m just gonna go ahead and say, I think Danielle’s [the] winner of this thing.”
