UNIVERSAL CITY, CA — NBC's "The Voice" crowned Cassadee Pope as the winner of the popular vocal competition series' third cycle in tonight's (Tuesday, December 18) live results show and season finale, earning Pope the grand prize of a recording contract with Universal Republic Records.

Pope, from Team Blake, beat out fellow finalists Terry McDermott (who came in second place) and Nicholas David (third place) — all of whom performed on the December 18 finale.

The musician coaches are Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera, CeeLo Green and Blake Shelton.

Pope, from Los Angeles, is starting out fresh as a solo artist after touring with her pop/rock band, Hey Monday. She plays guitar as well as some bass, drums and violin and prides herself on knowing a "surprising amount of 1980s rock music." In her spare time, Pope enjoys her hobbies of cooking, hiking and writing.

McDermott, from New Orleans, La., was on Team Blake. Originally from Scotland, McDermott moved to the United States years ago with his band, Driveblind, but now he's trying to make it as a solo artist. His favorite song is "Imagine" by John Lennon. McDermott is a huge soccer enthusiast and currently lives in New Orleans with his wife and son.

David is from St. Paul, Minn. and was on Team CeeLo. Formerly overweight, David fell into bad habits when he began performing with a country band after college. After meeting his dream girl five years ago and finding a spiritual path, he has cleaned up his life and now raises their two children (with another on the way). Singing what he calls "heart music," David continues to perform in nightly gigs.

"The Voice" returns for a new fourth cycle of new shows on March 25, 2013.

"The Voice" is a presentation of One Three Media (a Hearst/Mark Burnett company), Talpa Media USA Inc. and Warner Horizon Television. The series is created by John de Mol, who executive-produces along with Burnett, Audrey Morrissey, Stijn Bakkers and Lee Metzger.
