Texas native Danielle Bradbery was named the winner of the fourth season of "The Voice" on Tuesday.

Bradbery, 16, was a part of Blake Shelton's team during the competition. However, fellow judge Adam Levine predicted she would be the winner the night before the results were announced.

"And I'm just going to go ahead and say, I think Danielle's the winner of this thing," he said Monday. "I think you're one of the most important artists we've ever seen walk across this stage."

Bradbery's victory represent's the third time a member of Team Blake wins the singing competition. The young singer told Us Weekly that Shelton was a great mentor because he "pushes you to do what you love" and "just has your back the whole way."

Asked about what her next step would be, the youngest contestant to ever win "The Voice" said she was looking forward to spending time with her family and getting back to normal.

"I'm definitely going to go home first because I want to sleep in my bed," she said.

Nevertheless, Bradbery added that she's ready to begin her new career.

"I definitely got a feel of [stardom] throughout this whole journey, [and] I'm just ready for whatever gets thrown at me," she told Us Weekly after the finale. "I'm bracing myself and I'm just really excited."
