Jordan Smith, 22, has had quite the run on this show, to say the least! His Blind Audition performance of Sia’s “Chandelier” aired in the very first episode and people were immediately buzzing about the powerhouse vocals that were just SO unexpected and unlike anything viewers had ever heard before. After getting all four chairs to turn, Jordan chose Adam Levine as his coach, and what a decision it was!
Staying loyal to his frontrunner contestant, Adam kept Jordan around (deservedly so) through the Battle and Knockout rounds, and America was finally able to show their support of the Kentucky native once the Nov. 9 episode rolled around. Jordan’s Live Playoff performance of “Halo” by Beyoncé can be described as nothing but “perfection,” and he was a shoo-in for America’s votes to make it to the Top 12…which, of course, he did.
Week after week, he continued to totally slay the competition, with every single one of his live performances landing in the Top 10 on iTunes. He even beat out Adele for the No. 1 spot! But it was his Semifinals performance of “Somebody To Love” that really solidified him as an absolute force to be reckoned with, and by that point, there was simply no question that he deserved to be the Season 9 champion.
Along the way, Jordan made some lifelong friends and formed an unbelievable bond with his coach, Adam. The two proved to be quite the pair, and we couldn’t be happier to see them take this one home together! Click through the gallery above to check out photos of Jordan right now!
