“The Voice” WINNER Is…
“The Voice” season 9 winner was announced on Tuesday! Get all the results here and see video of the winning moment below!
As Gossip Cop reported, the Top 4 finalists — Jordan Smith (Team Adam), Barrett Baber (Team Blake), Emily Ann Roberts (Team Blake), and Jeffery Austin (Team Gwen) — had their last chance to win over America on Monday. Frontrunner Smith was the only artist to receive two standing ovations from the entire panel, while Blake Shelton predicted Roberts could pull an upset. Baber, of course, doubled the chance that Shelton would be the winning coach, while Austin had the opportunity to make Gwen Stefani the first female coach to win in the history of the NBC music competition.
As per usual, the two-hour season finale was jammed packed with performances from special guests (including Justin Bieber, Missy Elliott, Coldplay, and The Weeknd), and well, a lot of fluff. And despite Carson Daly repeatedly teasing that the results would be coming up, it wasn’t until 11:55 p.m. that the moment of truth began. And at that point, it was revealed Austin had finished in fourth place.
It was then announced that Baber was in third place. That left Smith (Team Adam) and Roberts (Team Blake) as the final two. And SMITH WON!
This marks the third time Levine has been the winning coach. He previously emerged victorious with Javier Colon back in season 1 and then again with Tessanne Chin in season 5. This is the fourth time Shelton has been the coach of the runner-up, and the first time he’s had an artist finish in third place. For Stefani, this marked the first time she had an artist in the finale at all.
