'The Voice' Season 9 Spoilers: iTunes Rankings for Finale Led by Jordan Smith
The Voice will crown its ninth victor in just a few short hours, but there may already be a major hint at who wins the show. The official iTunes rankings for each of the final four's three songs have arrived online, and it seems as if Jordan Smith has this year on lock for a Team Adam victory.
TVLine posted the highest rankings of each song from Jordan Smith, Emily Ann Roberts, Jeffery Austin and Barrett Baber, and the results shouldn't be too surprising. All three of Jordan's songs landed in the top 10, led by his cover of the Christmas song "Mary Did You Know," which peaked at No. 1. Jordan's Sound of Music cover "Climb Ev'ry Mountain" topped out at No. 3 and his duet with his coach, Adam Levine also landed in the top 5.
Jordan's dominance on the iTunes chart should come as no surprise - he's been a sales juggernaut all season. His cover of Queen's "Somebody to Love" during the show's semi-finals was actually the top downloaded song of last week, besting Adele's "Hello."
Jordan's success on iTunes all but guarantees his victory. For the first time, this season iTunes downloads will count toward the end voting tally (except for the coach's duets). Songs that reached the top 10 will also get a 10x multiplier.
Jordan, of course, wasn't the only singer to land in the top 10 of iTunes. Team Blake's Emily Ann also fared well. Her take on Cam's "Burning House" peaked at No. 2 and her duet with her coach, "Islands in the Stream," topped off at No. 6.
As for Barrett Baber and Jeffery Austin, they landed at Nos. 7 and 9, respectively. But every song from last night fared well, with the lowest song going to Jeffery's "O Holy Night" at No. 21.
