Olivia Henken continued to capture admirers with her latest win on the NBC reality show "The Voice" on Wednesday, narrowly besting Stephanie Anne Johnson to keep her spot on Team Christina.

The win completed the show’s battle rounds; knockout rounds start next week.

“This Kentucky native is proud to say she cannot wait to share her god-given talent with the world,” reads a post on Henken’s website, OliviaCountry.com. “She is honored to have such wonderful opportunities come her way and at such a young age. Through belting out ballads and rocking out each and every show, Olivia has what it takes to entertain all ages. Olivia know it is her fans who keep her going and seeing a smile on one person's face, makes every show worthwhile. It is important to her that everyone is having as much fun as she is.”

Henken and Johnson were pitted against each other for a performance of “Done.” Coaches Cee Lo Green and Adam Levine took Johnson over Henken, but Blake Shelton said he preferred Henken’s interpretation of the tune. Aguilera chose Henken to move forward. Johnson, though, was picked up by Green for his team. “She’s remarkably talented,” Green said, according to UPI. “I’m looking forward to seeing what she can do in the future.”

Fans were fine with the decision.

The Voice began airing in April of 2011. Winners receive $100,000 and a Universal Music Group recording deal. Winners so far include Javier Colon, Jermaine Paul, Cassadee Pope, and 16-year-old Danielle Bradbery.
