NBC’s ‘The Voice’ finale review: Was Michelle Chamuel or Danielle Bradbery the winner?

The VoiceGoing into Tuesday night’s season 4 finale for “The Voice,” we had a very particular expectation for what would transpire: The Swon Brothers would be third, Michelle Chamuel would be second, and then Danielle Bradbery would be the winner. This is what the edit tended to suggest to us last night with the performance order, and while the Swons had pretty strong iTunes sales, we wondered whether or not the voting public in the country world would be able to withstand an onslaught from Michelle Chamuel fans and Usher’s celebrity friends tweeting out their support.

Before we had a chance to find out anything, though, we were unfortunately subjected to what was basically 90 minutes of nothing, at least unless you like filler segments featuring the coaches, celebrity guests, and also some duets featuring superstars. It was nice to see OneRepublic and Bob Seger make appearances, but some of the other stuff we could’ve done without. Why get rid of an hour for “America’s Got Talent” to give us two hours of this? There are some things that we don’t quite understand.

In the end, though, only one person can win, so let’s get to that before we start to drive you insane in the same way that the show did.

3rd place – The Swon Brothers. Just as we predicted here. The boys were good, but the placement last night completely screwed them.

2nd place – Michelle Chamuel. In a shocker to no one, Usher’s quirky electro-pop contestant came second, which is proof that the iTunes voting results are yet again king.

1st place – Danielle Bradbery. She’s a good winner, and she has a chance at being a star in country music. Is she a little predictable, though? Yes, and the show should change that moving forward.

What did you think about the extended finale tonight, and did the right person win? Be sure to share your thoughts below! If you want to read some more news when it comes to the show and iTunes, all you have to do is click here.
