'The Voice' winner Danielle Bradbery speaks out about her duet with her coach Blake Shelton on the finale, saying that it was awkward. Find out what she was thinking during the song.

Awkward alert!

Danielle Bradbery says that her duet with coach Blake Shelton on The Voice finale was exactly that.

The 16-year-old rising star told TV Line that she was super uncomfortable singing "Timber, I'm Falling in Love" with the country crooner (who is more than twice her age!) because they have a father-daughter type relationship and there they were basically singing a love song to each other.

"Well, I mean, we're looking at each other and it's a love song," she said. "I tried to get in the back of my mind, 'Well, I'll just make it like, OK, hey Dad.' Like a father perspective. Yeah, it was kind of awkward at moments, but I tried to make it not as awkward as possible."

We totally get why Danielle would feel a little weird singing that kind of song with Blake, but they managed to pull it off like pros and you couldn't tell they were squirming during the song at all.

The season four winner also said that Blake is helping guide her career and make sure she doesn't go off on the wrong path, adding that he and his wife Miranda Lambert have both told her that they're always just a phone call away if she ever needs anything.

One of Danielle's duets that definitely WASN'T awkward was her song with Hunter Hayes, which set the social media sphere on fire buzzing about the chemistry the two had on stage.

Which duet did you like better: Danielle and Hunter or Danielle and Blake?
