Cassadee was crowned the season three winner of ‘The Voice’ on Dec. 18, but the talented singer revealed to EXCLUSIVELY why she was so nervous — and didn’t think she clinched the top spot! Read on to find out what she said.

Cassadee Pope was one of the strong frontrunners to win The Voice ever since the beginning — and even more so as the competition drew to a close. But the 23-year-old singer told EXCLUSIVELY that she did not believe she would walk away with the title!

“I thought I would be out during the knockout rounds, I was not happy with those performances,” she revealed.

“I remember watching it from home and really thought Blake took a real chance on me and I didn’t do well,” Cassadee added. “That was a low moment, I think seeing [being number one on] iTunes made things for me a little more at ease as it gave me a little heads up and that was nice!”

Of course, Cassadee ended up wowing not only the coaches, but also the viewers — and blew away the competition! Coach Blake Shelton agrees.

“She beats herself up a lot and thinks it is over, but I held up my phone and showed her the iTunes [ranking] and the thing about her, even when it’s good, it’s never enough and that is what makes her an artist!” Blake told exclusively.

“She is a creator and an artist and will never be totally happy,” Blake added. “But she should be happy that she won!”

And the season three winner, who gave a win to Team Blake, couldn’t argue with that.

“Yeah! I am excited!” she declared

Congrats to Cassadee and Blake!
