Why Were Michelle Chamuel and The Swon Brothers Eliminated on The Voice Tonight? 6/18/2013

We were majorly bummed when Michelle Chamuel and The Swon Brothers were eliminated from The Voice 2013 during this week's jaw-dropping live finale. Sure, Danielle Bradbery deserved to take home the win, but how could this have happened?! No, seriously, how?

Turns out it all came down to voting. The polls opened directly following Monday night's live competition, giving America the chance to vote for either Michelle, Danielle, or The Swon Brothers until 10 a.m. ET on Tuesday, June 18. Fans were able to cast their votes up to 10 times online, as well as through SMS (Sprint customers only!) and by phone. Oh, and they could also vote by buying Michelle, Danielle, or The Swon Brother's songs on iTunes!

Unlike other music competitions, The Voice's coaches had nothing to do with picking a winner, which means the decision lay entirely in fans' hands. Sadly, Michelle and The Swon Brothers just didn't get enough love from ye olde USofA, which means Danielle won The Voice 2013 thanks to you (yes, you!).

Are you happy with the results? Tell us who you wish had won in the comments!
