After weeks of competition, Lee University’s Jordan Smith has won NBC’s “The Voice” competition.
The winner was announced Tuesday night and featured Smith performing “Without You” by Usher with the artist. Watch that video below.
A front-runner all season, Smith defeated competitors Emily Ann Roberts, Barrett Baber and Jeffery Austin to snag the title.
During Monday’s final competition, Smith performed “Mary, Did You Know?” and “Climb Every Mountain.”
Smith was a member of Adam Levine’s team, which has won “The Voice” competition three times in nine seasons. He and Levine performed “God Only Knows” together during Monday’s final competition.
Voting was tabulated via email, phone, text voting and iTunes purchases of songs performed during the show. Smith currently has three songs in the iTunes “top songs” list.
Smith, originally from Harlan, Kentucky, was a senior music business major at Lee University before taking a semester off to compete on the program. He is also a member of the prestigious Lee Singers.
“The Voice” begins as a blind competition where a panel of celebrity judges hears just the voice of a performer. The judges hit a button and rotate their chairs if they like what they hear. Smith performed “Chandelier” by Sia on the first show and chose Levine as his judge during the first program.
As the winner, Smith receives $100,000 and a recording contract with Universal Music Group.
