Oklahoma country music superstar Blake Shelton capped his 37th birthday with a third straight win on “The Voice” Tuesday night.

But it was 16-year-old Texas crooner Danielle Bradbery, the youngest contestant on the hit reality show's fourth season, who earned Shelton the win, rather than his fellow Oklahomans The Swon Brothers.

Muskogee's The Swon Brothers, the most successful duo in the NBC singing contest's history, finished in third place at the end of the two-hour live finale. Pop-rocker Michelle Chamuel, representing R&B/hip-hop hit-maker Usher's team, was the runner-up.

Zach and Colton Swon got a big consolation prize during the finale when they got to perform the 1976 ballad “Night Moves” with Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Bob Seger, whose “Turn the Page” the brothers covered earlier in the season. Chamuel belted with Tulsa native Ryan Tedder's band OneRepublic, while Bradbery sang with country up-and-comer Hunter Hayes.

Cher, Bruno Mars, Florida Georgia Line with Nelly and returning “The Voice” coach Christina Aguilera with Pitbull also performed on the finale.

“Man, this has been the most incredible ride that I've ever been on, and honestly, there couldn't have been a better coach in the world. We got closer, your friendship means a lot, and we got to sing with Bob Seger tonight,” Zach Swon told Shelton just before host Carson Daly revealed they had finished third out of the Top 3.
