Adam Levine is over the moon as the coach whose contestant won The Voice on Tuesday night. Jordan Smith took the season nine title, meaning Adam will tease Blake Shelton mercilessly in the coming months.

Blake Shelton and Adam Levine have long engaged in a bromance that delights viewers of The Voice. Adam’s win has provided him enough fodder to drive the country singer crazy.
Blake had two contestants in Tuesday night’s finale. Emily Ann Roberts, just 17, was the runner up to Jordan Smith. Barrett Baber came in third place.

Gwen Stefani–who is dating Blake Shelton since her split from hubby Gavin Rossdale and his from Miranda Lambert–had one contestant in the finals. Jeffery Austin came in fourth place.
“It’s really quite beautiful because Jordan gets to win The Voice and I get to tear Blake apart for the next six months,” Adam Levine said following his win on Tuesday. “[I’ll be] bragging about my win and his drought of victory. It’s gonna be great.”

Adam and Blake are the only two original coaches remaining on The Voice to have appeared every season since the show began in 2011. Adam won the first season, with Blake Shelton winning the next three consecutive seasons.
Of course Jordan Smith was Tuesday night’s real winner. The 22-year-old Kentucky college student blew both coaches and fans away from the moment he stepped on stage for the blind auditions.
“Honestly there were so many times when I didn’t think I would be in this position and I’m still blown away,” he said following his big win. “I never expected to [get] this far but I’m so honored to be and so proud to be sitting here out of all these people. This is one of the craziest moments that I’ve experienced.”

Blake Shelton better prepare himself. He is in for merciless ribbing from Adam Levine–starting now and probably not ending until Blake lands another Voice win.
