Chalk up another victory for country music star Blake Shelton.

Danielle Bradbery, of Team Blake, was crowned champion of NBC’s The Voice on Tuesday night.

In its fourth season, The Voice is a vocal competition in which musicians Shelton, Adam Levine, Shakira, and Usher serve as coaches. Viewers vote for their favorites, eventually deciding the winner.

Michelle Chamuel (Team Usher) was runner-up, while the Swon Brothers (Team Blake) finished third. The Swon Brothers were the first duo to make it to the competition’s final round.

The country influence was strong in this season’s competition with both Bradbery and the Swon Brothers selecting songs in the genre.

The 16-year-old Bradbery of Cypress, Texas, is the youngest competitor to win and is the third consecutive winner mentored by Shelton. Cassadee Pope won last season, and Jermaine Paul won in season two.

The star-studded finale featured performances by Cher, Pitbull, Christina Aguilera, Florida Georgia Line, and Bruno Mars.

The contestants also got their chance to perform with the stars. Bob Seger joined the Swon Brothers on Seger’s hit “Night Moves,” and Hunter Hayes joined Bradbery in a duet of I Want Crazy.

Bradbery closed the show with a performance of Sara Evans’ “Born to Fly.”
