On Tuesday night, The Voice declared Jermaine Paul the winner of NBC’s singing competition, after a very eventful season.
Following a night full of spectacular singing performances that brought back many of the contestants that didn’t make the final four, the moment had come to announce who would be the Season 2 winner of The Voice.
Paul, a 33-year-old background singer from Harriman, N.Y. could hardly fight back tears when he found out that he would be awarded the grand prize of $100,000 and a new record deal with Universal. The newly crowned champion, who was mentored by country singer Blake Shelton during the season, told the audience, “I just want to say thank you to everybody that supported me from day one”. He then released some tears.
Juliet Simms, the 26-year-old indie rocker from San Francisco and coached by Cee Lo Green, captured second place; Tony Lucca, the 36-year-old former Mouseketeer from Detroit, trailed Simms in third place. He was under the mentorship of Maroon 5 frontman, Adam Levine. 30-year-old classical singer Chris Mann, from Wichita, Kansas, who was under the leadership of pop diva Christina Aguilera, took fourth place.
Javier Colon was the winner of The Voice singing competition last season. Now watch Jermaine Paul have his moment as he’s crowned winner of season 2.
