Cassadee Pope Takes ‘The Voice’ Season 3 Crown

Cassadee Pope train dress 1Former Hey Monday frontwoman Cassadee Pope beat out Terry McDermott and Nicholas David after performing with Kelly Clarkson, The Killers and Avril Lavigne in last night’s finale of The Voice. 

Pope was a clear favorite with two high-charting iTunes covers, including one (“Over You”) that knocked “Gangnam Style” from the top. Her win in season three was the most watched finale in the show’s short history, with 14 million viewers.

Her competition, Radagast and Bilbo from The Hobbit, had decent pipes but no chance of achieving the commercial success that Pope can and hopefully will. 

“She’s got a lot of options,” her coach, Blake Shelton said. “She’s adored by rock fans, pop fans, country fans. She connects with a lyric the way few people can. The door is wide open.”

SEASON 4 – Spring 2013. Shakira will be on stage mentoring future yodeling, hip-shakers of America.
