Viewers won’t find out until tonight, but “Voice” judge Adam Levine says that he knows who will take first place.
Despite the fact that contestant Danielle Bradbery isn’t one of his contestants (Levine doesn’t have any competitors left on the show), the Maroon 5 lead singer said during the June 17 episode that he believes Bradbery’s vocals will net her the crown.
“The crazy thing about your voice is it's just so unbelievably perfect and powerful," he said. "It's one of the better voices I think I've ever heard live... And I'm just going to go ahead and say, I think Danielle's the winner of this thing," he said.
Because of this praise, fellow judge Blake Shelton, who has Bradbery on his team, gave Levine a standing ovation.
The remaining contestants on the show are the Swon Brothers (Zach and Colton), who perform together, Michelle Chamuel, and Bradbery. The Swon Brothers are on Shelton’s team, while Chamuel is being coached by singer Usher, who called Chamuel “the winner” during the June 17 episode.
The winner of the current season will be announced during the June 18 episode.
“The Voice” premiered on NBC in 2011 and features judges initially facing away from contestants, unable to see them, while the singers audition. Judges then choose whether or not they want the singer on their team based on their vocals alone before turning in their chairs to see what the contestant looks like.
Judges for the first season of the show consisted of Levine, Shelton, Cee Lo Green, and Christina Aguilera. Aguilera and Green were later replaced by singers Shakira and Usher. A contestant coached by Shelton has won the show twice, while a contestant from Levine’s team has secured the win once.
