Season 9 of The Voice came to a close last night, with some stellar performances by the final four contestants and plenty of celebrity guests. Emily Ann Roberts, Barrett Baber, Jeffery Austin and Jordan Smith all sang their hearts out in their efforts to win over the public but it was Smith who came out on top.

‘The Voice’ Season 9 Finale Recap: Jordan Smith Wins

The show opened with a welcome return from the top 24, reuniting for a rousing take on Major Lazer’s 2015 megahit, “Lean On.” The finalists were allowed to invite eliminated contestants back to the stage for one last performance. Baber and Austin opted for more low-key duet performances, while Roberts and Smith each invited a whole host of former contestants to the stage.

First of the special guests to perform was Coldplay with “Adventure of a Lifetime,” accompanied on stage by people in monkey suits because why not.

Roberts was joined by Ricky Skaggs for a performance of “Country Boy,” confidently holding her own opposite the country legend. Smith performed “Without You” with Usher, a surprisingly standout moment. Austin and Tori Kelly did a duet of Kelly’s single “Hollow,” and Baber performed “No One Else On Earth” with Wynonna.
