Jordan Smith is talented, charming and sweet — but tonight at the CMA Country Christmas TV special, he was…a Grinch! ‘The Voice’ alum sang one of our holiday favorites and got us in the spirit!
Welcome to Whoville, everybody! Jordan Smith, 23, is far from the Grinch, but he definitely slayed the green Christmas monster’s theme song at the CMA Country Christmas special on Nov. 28! While Jordan definitely isn’t a mean one, he absolutely crushed “You’re A Mean One, Mr. Grinch!”
Jordan is no scrooge! With his powerhouse vocals, Jordan dominated the Christmas jam in a sultry, jazzy rendition that got the Grand Ole Opry crowd on its feet. The season 9 The Voice winner rocked his thick-rimmed glasses and a holiday-friendly burgundy jacket.
OMG those notes! Jordan offered the audience his signature long, Adele-like voice and his amazing personality! Plus, this was just a sneak peak at what is on the highest selling Voice alum’s Christmas album, Tis The Season.
While Jordan’s style isn’t exactly country, several other cross-genre stars also took the Opry stage for the CMA Country Christmas special. Andrea Day, Idina Menzel and more showed off their impressive vocals to the Nashville community to get everyone in the Christmas spirit. They also came together for a fantastic cause! Like CMA Country Christmas’s past, the event requested audience members to bring unwrapped toys to give to struggling families in the Tennessee area for the holidays. So sweet!
While Jordan Smith may have been singing about the mean Mr. Grinch, he’s still getting people in the giving mood! We love it!
