On Tuesday night’s season 4 finale of NBC’s The Voice, former and returning coach Christina Aguilera took the stage just ahead of the winner being announced.
Aguilera took the stage with Pitbull to perform their smash hit “Feel This Moment,” for what can only be described as a deafening crowd. After multiple performances, however, including one from Cher, who had not performed live on television in more than a decade, it was time to announce the winner.
With all Team Shakira and Team Adam contestants out of the competition it came down to three: Team Usher’s Michelle Chamuel and Team Blake’s Danielle Bradbery and The Swon Brothers.
In the end, The Swon brothers came in third, Chamuel came in second, and the teenaged Bradbery became the winner of a season 4. Though Kia gave each of the final contestants brand new cars, Bradbery is the winner of a recording contract and $100,000.
With the young country singer’s win, coach Blake Shelton gets boasting rights for having coached the last three winners, and considering this is only the fourth season, that’s pretty impressive.
Though Usher and Shakira filled in this season, Shakira has already announced she will not be a coach next year, as Aguilera will be returning. However, the show has stated it plans to cycle Shakira, Usher, Cee Lo and Aguilera in and out each season to keep things interesting. Shakira will return in 2014 for season 6 of The Voice
