During her blind audition on the show's season premiere, Adam Levine predicted the outcome after hearing her sing just one song.

"That was the most beautiful, flawless, passionate, pitch-perfect thing I have ever heard in my entire life," he told her at the time. "I'm astonished by you. ... You're going to win 'The Voice.'"

Of course when he said that, he was trying to persuade her to join his team. But Aguilera, who was just as certain of Porter's success, won her over with a simple plea: ""Let a girl win it for once! For once!"

After the finale, Aguilera told reporters, "Tonight is a true victory for women."
