Adam Levine wins The Voice for the third time

Singer Adam Levine is celebrating after his contestant was crowned the winner of The Voice on Tuesday night (15Dec15).

The Maroon 5 frontman's act Jordan Smith emerged victorious on the show, beating rival coach Blake Shelton's two contenders Emily Ann Roberts and Barrett Baber, giving Levine his first win since 2013, and his third in total.


Adam is happy with the win as gives him bragging rights over Blake, the only other mentor who has been on the show since its 2011 premiere.


He tells ET.com, "It's really quite beautiful because Jordan gets to win The Voice and I get to tear Blake apart for the next six months... (I'll be) bragging about my win and his drought of victory. It's gonna be great."


Adam also congratulated his artist on Twitter.com, writing, "Wow! Congrats to @JordanSmithLive on winning #TheVoice Season 9. #VoiceFinale".


His winner performed a duet of Without You with former The Voice judge Usher during the finale. Coach Pharrell Williams and Missy Elliott teamed up to perform their track WTF (Where They From), The Weeknd sang a medley of his hits The Hills, Earned It and Can't Feel My Face, and Justin Bieber closed the show with a rendition of Sorry.


Adam and Blake will return for the tenth series in 2016 with Christina Aguilera returning to replace Gwen Stefani.


Blake, who has struck up a romance with his co-star this series, is sad she will not be back on the show, recently telling Extra, "I don't want Gwen to not be on the show... Why can't we have a fifth coach?"
