Brynn Cartelli was named winner of The Voice Monday night, becoming the youngest champ in the show’s history.

Just 14 when she auditioned — she would have been too young to try out prior to Season 12 — Brynn beat out a Top 4 that also included runner-up Britton Buchanan, Spensha Baker and Kyla Jade, Jennifer Hudson’s background singer.

From Longmeadow, Mass., Brynn turned 15 earlier in mid-April and excelled throughout the competition, displaying stage presence and composure far beyond her years.

She put an exclamation mark on her Season 14 journey Monday night when she landed at number three on iTunes with her new single (“Walk My Way”) and number six with her latest cover (Adele’s “Skyfall”).

That gave her four Top 10 hits on iTunes during her run on the show; contestants get bonus points to their vote totals whenever they land in the Top 10.

Brynn’s Voice journey began when producers spotted a video of her performing online and invited her to an audition in New York.

She was the second contestant we met in the season premiere and the first to join first-year coach Kelly Clarkson.

Blake Shelton had also turned for her blind audition performance of “Beneath Your Beautiful” and she admitted during a conference call earlier this year that she considered joining Team Blake. But she also said Kelly’s hit song “Breakaway” was pretty much her introduction to music.

“In the end I know that my 5-year-old self — that I would kick myself if I didn’t choose Kelly because I just love her so much and I am so, so happy that I did.”
