Look who’s back! Usher, who joined ‘The Voice’ as a coach in seasons four and six, returned on Dec. 15 for the season nine finale to perform ‘Without You’ with Jordan Smith. Did you love this performance as much as we did?
Jordan Smith, 22, has been a front-runner on season nine of The Voice since the beginning and his performance with Usher just proved yet again, why that is. He sounded absolutely incredible taking on “Without You” with the former judge, and their voices together were totally flawless!
We thought we loved this song when Usher did it alone — and then the harmony between he and Jordan happened. Plus, Usher definitely seemed right at home. It was of course so nice to see him back; he was last on The Voice during season six when his team member, Josh Kaufman actually won it all!
After their duet, Usher obviously ran off stage and hugged all of the judges. How cute is that?!
Jordan, who is the last member of Team Adam Levine performed on Dec. 14 by himself for the last time, wowing everyone with The Sound of Music‘s “Climb Every Mountain” — and he really made people believe he could win the whole thing.
We know that Jordan is extremely appreciative of Adam. HollywoodLife.com recently chatted with Jordan after the show, and he beamed over how great the Maroon Five frontman has been. “He really encourages us as individuals and wants us to feel comfortable and be who we are,” Jordan said. “I think if there was something we were uncomfortable with,o r felt we couldn’t do our best with, I feel he’d encourage us and want us to say something. He celebrates being confident in your decisions in who you are.”
Well we think he should be celebrated! What did you think of their performance, HollywoodLifers? Let us know!
