The Voice: Cassadee Pope Wins, Christina Aguilera & Cee Lo Green Say Goodbye

December 19, 2012 07:32 AM by Donna W. Martin

That’s a wrap! Season three of NBC’s, The Voice is over. After an exciting season, a winner was crowned and two of the beloved judges prepare to move on to other things. Keep reading for more details.

According to NBC, Cassadee Pope was crowned the winner of the third season of The Voice and won the hefty prize of $100,000 and a recording contract. Pope, 23, originally from Florida, has been trying to launch her solo career ever since splitting with previous pop-punk band, Hey Monday. And her victory has done just that. We can’t wait to hear more from Cassadee!

As Cassadee says goodbye and moves on to pursue her solo career, judges Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green say goodbye to the show as well.

Aguilera, who just turned 32, is saying goodbye to The Voice, at least for now, to promote her new album, Lotus, which was released last month. And although this is a much-needed creative break for Aguilera, she said she would definitely miss her colleagues.

“First, the coaches, as we have really become one large family,” she told Cover Media. “They are each so special to me and big brothers in every sense of the word.”

But Aguilera isn’t the only judge leaving the show. Cee Lo Green is also leaving to pursue other creative outlets. While he is leaving The Voice, he’s not going far. Green will remain in the NBC family working on a sitcom that is “loosely based” on his life.

Blake Shelton and Adam Levine will remain on the judges’ panel. They will be joined by Shakira, who is taking Aguilera’s spot and Usher will be taking Cee Lo’s chair.

Join us in congratulating Cassadee Pope on her victory and bidding a fond farewell to Aguilera and Green.

    No, the right contestant didn’t win The Voice this season. Cassidy Pope has a beautiful voice, and I voted for her several times, but Trevin Hunte was the rightful heir of The Voice for Season Three! He has a gift for expression that is clearly a gift from God. No one this season touched as many hearts as Trevin. But fans vote for their favorites, and this is just my opinion. I hope that Christina takes Trevin on her Tour, as she said she would. That would be great for both Christina and Trevin!

    my first choice would have been Trevin Hunte. and I also hope Christina follows through on her promise to him. Although Cassadee is very talented.I wouldn’t have chosen her.

    I thought this competition would be different from the others, but it turned out the same or worse to leave the magnificent singers eliminated (Trebor and Davis). The decision was based again on who has more ways to vote and not by the artist with outstanding talent. What a shame.
