“The Voice” front runner Jordan Smith out-shined Adele on iTunes after his powerful performance at the NBC singing competition.
Smith performed Queen’s classic “Somebody to Love” on “The Voice” Season 9 on Monday. Surrounded by a full church choir as backup, Jordan stunned the members of the audience with his incredible performance.
After Smith sang, his coach Adam Levine waved his fists in the air, ran onstage to embrace him and then finally dropped the microphone for him.
Levine said: “I don’t need to say anything at all because that’s one of the best things I’ve ever seen in my entire life.”
“He’s like the Kobe Bryant, Michael Jordan, Lebron James of The Voice,'” Adam added.
According to People magazine, just about 30 minutes after the competition’s semifinals episode ended, Smith’s version “Somebody to Love” skyrocketed up on iTunes.
This ended Adele’s five-week reign with her comeback single “Hello” from her album “25.”
According to TV Line, eight out of the nine remaining contestants on “The Voice” season nine made it to the Top 10 on the iTunes singles chart at the close of voting this week.
