"The Voice's" new champion Cassadee Pope was still reeling after her big win on Tuesday night.
"I'm numb. I can't feel anything," the singer from Team Blake, who bested her teammate Terry McDermott, who came in second and Team Cee Lo's Nicholas David (who came in third) to take the Season 3 crown, told AccessHollywood.com's Laura Saltman after the show.
"I know I'm happy. That's all I can feel right now. But man I just feel like I have accomplished so much," she continued. In addition to winning, the 23-year-old said one of her musical dreams was fulfilled on Tuesday night.
"To be able to have my last performance be with Avril Lavigne was something I'll never forget," she continued, of her "I'm With You" duet with Avril.
The singer said she was still in shock about her success on the iTunes charts.
"It's unreal," she said. "All the voters that are continuing to buy the music and all the people that see it up there are wondering what it is. Even if they don't watch the show, so they're buying it and it's just this snowball effect."
Before looking ahead, Cassadee was going to take a (brief) moment to savor her win.
"Tonight we have this great wrap party that I've been hearing about since the beginning of the season. They have it every year and everyone's going to be there, all the coaches, the producers, everybody. So I'm going to stop by, but I don't really want to stay very long because I have a 4 AM wake up call," she told Access.
