Adam Levine's prediction came true on the season finale of “The Voice” Tuesday: 16-year-old Texan Danielle Bradbery took home the title.

Before Carson Daly announced Bradbery had won, she thanked her coach Blake Shelton for being an “amazing person” who taught her so much. “I’m so thankful I have you in my life now,” Bradbery said. “I love you, coach.”

Shelton celebrated his third consecutive win on the show, as well as his 37th birthday Tuesday night. Bradbery is the youngest winner in the show's history, and she had the opportunity to sing with one of her favorite singers, Hunter Hayes, during the finale (above).

Amherst’s Michelle Chamuel came in second place, and the Oklahoma-bred Swon Brothers came in third. Chamuel united with One Republic for a duet during the finale, while the Swon Brothers strummed alongside Bob Seger for a memorable rendition of "Night Moves."

The show was packed with other performances by big names, including Cher, Bruno Mars, and former contestants. Cher, 67, debuted a new song, "Woman's World," and Mars performed his newest single, "Treasure."

Do you think the right person won? Are you disappointed Chamuel isn't bringing home the title to Massachusetts? Let us know in the comments.
