The Voice U.S Season 4

SEASON 4 - 2013

The fourth season of the American reality talent show The Voice premiered on March 25, 2013 on NBC. It is the first season to feature Usher and Shakira as coaches, with Cee Lo Green and Christina Aguilera taking a break for their music career. The team sizes were trimmed back down to 12 per team (season 2's team size), with each coach having two 'steals' in the Battle Rounds.

At 16 years old, Danielle Bradbery, the youngest artist in the competition, was declared the season's winner, making Blake Shelton the winning coach three times in a row.

Auditions were held from January 12 to February 17, 2013 in Chicago, Atlanta, Los Angeles, Houston and New York City. This season's advisers for the battle rounds were Hillary Scott (lead singer of Lady Antebellum), Sheryl Crow, Pharrell Williams and Joel Madden (lead singer of Good Charlotte and coach on The Voice Australia) as advisers of Levine's, Shelton's, Usher's and Shakira's teams respectively.
