"You are no longer a background singer, my friend. Today, you're in front for good." These were the words Adam Levine told Jermaine Paul last Tuesday on 'The Voice' finale.
Last week, Jermaine's own version of "Open Arms" by the Journey made him advance to the top 4. His classy and emotional performance of "I Believe I Can Fly" on Monday night, plus sharing a proud backstage moment with his parents most likely made him the winner for the competition.
He worked as Alicia Keys' backup singer before the singing contest. According to Yahoo!, he has also shared the stage with Mary J. Blige, Kanye West, and Joss Stone. For now, we have yet to see if he can also sell records like them.
Although, it was tough to predict who would win this season. It focused on different headline-making contestants like Team Cee Lo's rocker Juliet Simms who placed second; Team Adam's heartthrob Tony Lucca who ranked third; and Christina's showman Chris Mann who was at the bottom.
Performances of the grand finale are as follows: The Jackson 5's I Want You Back with Jermaine and Voice castoffs Jamar Rogers, Pip and James Massone; Flo Rida with Whistle and Wild Ones with Juliet Sia; Bittersweet Symphony with Chris Mann with Katrina Parker and Lindsey Pavao; Hall and Oates' Rich Girl with Tony, Chris and Jermaine as backup; Erin Willett, RaeLynn and Jammar sang With a Little Help from My Friends with Juliet; Lady Antebellum performed Wanted You More; Tony sang Go Your Own Way with Jordis Unga; and finally Justin Bieber's performance of his latest single Boyfriend.
Jermaine Paul emerged from backstage to be the winner of "The Voice" Season 2. Soon, he'll be the one hiring his own backup singers. Congratulations!
