The final episode of the season was jam-packed with fun performances, and it all culminated with the reveal of the hit series’ ninth champion, who couldn’t have been more deserving of the title. Find out who won right here!
To kick off finale night, the season’s Top 24 joined forces on stage for an epic performance. With finalists Emily Ann Roberts, Barrett Baber, Jordan Smith and Jeffery Austin leading the way, the group had such a blast back together again, all wowing in white while singing “Lean On” for the reunion. Barrett took the stage for a performance next, and he brought back his pal, Zach Seabaugh, a fellow Team Blake Shelton member, to duet on Randy Travis’ “Forever & Ever Amen.” Stop, their brotherly vibe is TOO cute — nothin’ like a couple of country crooners teaming up!
Season 9’s most soulful singers, Celeste Betton, Regina Love, Nadjah Nicole, Darius Scott and Mark Hood, came together next for a powerful performance that was so fun to watch. We’ve missed these guys! Emily Ann got the chance of a lifetime in the finale when she sang with country legend Ricky Skaggs…the entire world of country music is clearly taking notice that this girl is going to be a star. Remember she got Dolly Parton’s approval, too?! Of course, she totally deserves it, and her coach, Blake, just couldn’t stop smiling during the duet.
Madi Davis, who was Pharrell’s last-standing team member, came back to The Voice stage next, joining Gwen Stefani‘s finalist, Jeffery, for an incredible rendition of Amy Winehouse’s “Tears Dry On Their Own.” Soooo perfect! Madi’s coach performed with Missy Elliott next — the superstars sang their new hit “WTF (Where They From)?” and it was quirky and totally awesome.
Former The Voice coach Usher, who won in Season 6, returned to team up with Adam Levine’s team member, Jordan, for a totally unexpected but AMAZING rendition of the A-lister’s song “Without U.” Seriously, is there anything Jordan can’t do?! After a guest performance from country breakout star Sam Hunt, Jeffery came back on stage, and he was joined another huge up-and-comer, Tori Kelly. The pair sounded totally incredible singing her single “Hollow.” Anyone else on board for them recording an actual duet together!?
Barrett got the chance to perform with one of his idols, Wynonna Judd, next, and the two of them singing one of her classic hits was totally epic. This guy totally has what it takes to make it in country music! The Weeknd followed with a medley performance of his No. 1 hits — he’s so talented. Jordan decided to bring former contestants Korin Bukowski, Amy Vachal, Evan McKeel, Regina and Mark back to the stage for his finale performance of “Anyway You Want It”, and it was so great to see him having so much fun with his friends from the show up there!
Emily Ann brought her friends and former contestants Yvonne Acero, Nadjah, Riley Biederer, Morgan Frazier and Shelby Brown back for a rendition of “Summer Nights” by Rascal Flatts, and the girl power was on POINT. Squad Goals, much?! Justin Bieber rocked the stage with a stripped-down (then amped-up) version of his hit “Sorry” next — amazing, as always — and then it was finally time to get to what we’ve all been waiting for: The results.
In fourth place…Jeffery Austin!
In third place...Barrett Baber!
In second place…Emily Ann Roberts!
And the winner is…Jordan Smith!!!!!!! (I mean, absolutely no surprise, right?!)
