Lee University’s Jordan Smith capped his phenomenal run on NBC’s The Voice scoring his third number one i-Tunes song and second as in many weeks with his performance of “Mary Did You Know?” in Monday’s night final competition and leaving little doubt as to who will be named the season nine champion tonight.  The two hour show which will also feature Chattanooga’s and former Voice coach Usher’s duet of his signature hit “Without You” with Mr. Smith starts at 9 p.m. on WRCB. 

The 21-year-old from Harlan, Ky. owned three of the top four spots on i-Tunes Tuesday morning as his cover of “Climb Ev’ry Mountain” from The Sound of Music and his duet of “God Only Knows” with his coach Adam Levine were ranked three and four respectively.  Mr. Smith’s rendition of “Somebody to Love” which skyrocketed to the top of i-Tunes last week remains in the top 15 and his first number one last month was “Great Is Thy Faithfulness”.  

All of Mr. Smith’s performances throughout his Voice run have been top 10 i-tunes hits from his blind audition of “Chandelier” which has been viewed over 21 million times on You Tube through “Mary”. 

East Tennessee contestants could score a 1-2 finish as Knoxville’s Emily Ann Roberts is second on i-Tunes with her cover of country newcomer Cam’s “Burning House”.  Like Mr. Smith, the Karns High School student has been a fan favorite as she has embraced classical country with her performances of “Why Not Me?”, “She’s Got You”, “9 to 5” and “In the Garden”.
