The Voice has crowned Jordan Smith its new winner, which turned out to be no surprise at all.

Jordan, who was on coach Adam Levine's team, was declared the champion of The Voice's ninth season during Tuesday night's live finale broadcast on NBC.

"It's so surreal to think that I'm standing here at the finale," Jordan said during a video montage that played before The Voice host Carson Daly revealed the results of America's vote.

"I can remember sitting in class and doing my music theory homework and wishing for something like this. I've learned that on this show, you can be exactly who you are and you don't have to fit that mold that everyone says you have to fit. And to be the winner of The Voice would ultimately prove that to me."

Well, it's been proven! Jordan was a frontrunner all season long with his inspirational ballads, powerful delivery and shocking vocal range. His songs also dominated the iTunes charts week after week.

Jordan received the most home viewer votes cast following Monday night's Top 4 performance show, during which the four finalists each performed three songs -- one of their choosing, a holiday classic and then a duet with his or her coach.

Adam was thrilled to see his artist become victorious, as he explained Jordan is "incredibly dignified" and more than deserving of The Voice trophy and a recording contract.

Emily Ann Roberts on Blake Shelton's team finished in second place.

"I thought if I was lucky enough to get past the Blind Audition, that anything after that, I didn't even care. I am so happy with the accomplishments I've made this far and I [already] feel like a winner," Emily Ann said during a video package.

Blake's other artist Barrett Baber claimed third place, while Gwen Stefani's team member Jeffery Austin finished The Voice's ninth season in fourth place.
