Though she’s only 16-years-old, The Voice Season 4 winner Danielle Bradbery has dealt with her share of criticism and insults. In the blind auditions she told Carson Daly (and America) that kids used to mock her for her crooked teeth and that she was too shy to perform in public.

But after three months of fantastic performances, Danielle is a seasoned pro and she has a message for those who used to bring her down. Apparently some bullies in school told her she’d never get anywhere in her singing career

“Now I’m here and they are probably still in the same place being mean," Danielle told the New York Daily News.

Sounds like the makings of a chart-topping Taylor Swift song, as if there weren’t already a million comparisons between these two.

As for her post-Voice career, Dani is heading into the recording studio this Monday with Big Machine Records, which coincidentally houses TSwift.
