Jordan Smith, one of Adam Levine’s contestants on The Voice, beat out Adele on iTunes with his rendition of Queen’s “Somebody to Love,” as performed on Monday night’s show.

Prior to Smith’s trending performance, Adele held the top spot with her new hit song “Hello.”
“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,” Adam Levine said following Smith’s performance. He was also fist pumping as Jordan Smith belted out the tune, accompanied by a large gospel choir.
It was just 30 minutes after Jordan Smith’s performance that his version of the Queen hit dethroned Adele, who had been in the number one spot for five weeks.
The excitement continues for Jordan Smith. On Tuesday’s episode of The Voice, he learned he has been voted on to the finale as one of four remaining contestants.
Jordan Smith is from Harlan, Kentucky. He is a 21-year-old Lee University student who loves performing in his school’s choir.
Smith has nothing but wonderful things to say about his coach, Adam Levine.
“He is super involved as a coach,” he told People magazine recently. “That’s not an act. He was just talking to us about our next song choices and takes the time to listen through songs and find the right fit for us.”
Jordan Smith says he’d love to win, but that he’d be thrilled for any of his fellow contestants should they take the top spot instead.
“We have grown close,” he said. “I’d be thrilled to win myself, but just as thrilled for one of these ladies or anyone on any of the other teams to win. I think this is a great opportunity and everyone here is deserving of it.”
