The Voice Season 9 winner was crowned last night and as we predicted earlier, the winner did in fact turn out to be Jordan Smith under Coach Adam Levine. The Voice has seen abundant talent throughout its 9 seasons, but 21-year-old Smith took the cake, with Levine even calling him, “the most important person that’s ever been on this show.” Wow, that coming from the Maroon 5 frontman is compliment enough. As expected as Smith’s win was the Twitterverse went crazy. Everyone right from celebrities to the finalists of the show and its fans, had hearty congratulations lined up for the amazing singer. Week after week Smith went on to deliver sensational performances that left every single judge in awe as well. Take the example of the first part of the semi-finale; Smith’s rendition of “Somebody To Love,” by legendary Queen, was the highlight of the night. If Freddie Mercury could hear it now, he’d be proud.

The night included some amazing songs like “Lean On” by all the past participants as the opening act. Following that was Emily Ann Roberts’ cover of “Country Boy” with Ricky Skaggs. Smith then did a duet with ex-coach of the show, Usher, singing his hit “Without You.” Towards the end Usher was so surprised with Smith’s vocals that he circled the latter, timing how long he stretched one note- which to be precise was an impressive 16 seconds! A YouTube user commented on this video, “Usher must feel so honored that he can sing with Jordan.” Whoa! Following that, guest star Missy Elliott sang her new release “WTF (Where They From)” alongside Coach Pharell Williams, who unfortunately had nobody from his team in the finale this season. Barett Baber of Team Blake went on to belt “No One Else on Earth” with Wynonna and Sam Hunt sang crowd favorite “Break Up in a Small Town.” The Weeknd went on to set the stage on fire (quite literally) with a mashup of “The Hills,” “Earned It,” and “Can’t Feel My Face.”

But the highlight of the night was of course, Justin Bieber. He started with the acoustic piano version of his chart-topping “Sorry” which had fans screaming with delight, after which he continued with the original up-beat tempo of the song. After the nail-biting result, Jordan Smith, the winner of The Voice Season 9 took to the stage to perform one last time (for now), while a speechless Levine hugged Smith’s parents. It’s safe to say the Twitterverse went nuts! Runner up, Roberts took to Twitter to wish Smith saying, “Love you so so much @JordanSmithLive YOU DESERVE IT!!!” One fan had a theory which voiced the opinion of most of Smith’s fans. It red, “Ok NOW can @Adele and #jordansmith work together!? [sic].” Well we certainly hope so!
