Jermaine Paul was announced the winner of season 2 on "The Voice" finale last night.

Jermaine won over Juliet only by 4 percentage points. Tony Lucca and Chris Mann came in third and fourth respectively, with only 0.25 percentage points separating them.

Jermaine was very emotional. He hugged his coach Blake firmly and thanked all the people that voted for him, his wife and children, his parents and even his mother in law.

He used to be a back-up singer for Alicia Keys and Mary J. Blige.

"Nobody but Jesus man," he said wiping the tears off. (Revive the Moment Below)

Jermaine performed "I Belive I can Fly" for a last time but could barely sing it because of all the people that were congratulating him on stage.

"Still in shock...Thank you America!!! You Picked the right guy. Congrats at Jermaine Paul...You deserve this," Shelton tweeted Wednesday.

Jermaine received a recording contract with Universal Republic Records, a $100,000 cash prize and a Kia motors car.

The two-hour special featured numerous performances. Bieber debuted his first TV performance of "Boyfriend" sporting gold sneakers.

Lady Antebellum, Flo Rida, Daryl Hall and John Oates (Hall and Oates) also were performing.

In the first hour of the show the final four contestants performed with those who were voted off earlier in the competition.

Jermaine Paul, James Massone, Pip, and Jamar Rogers performed the Jackson 5's "I Want You Back."

Flo Rida and Juliet Simms performed his hits including "Whistle" and "Wild Ones."

Chris Mann sang "Bittersweet Symphony" with Katrina Parker and Lindsey Pavao.

Daryl Hall and John Oates sang their song "Rich Girl" being backed up by Jermaine and the guys.

Naia Kete (The Voice), Cheesa, Kim Yarbrough, and Sera Hill sang a rendition of Stevie Wonder's "Superstitious."

Juliet Simms, Jamar Rogers, RaeLynn and Erin Willett performed "With a Little Help from My Friends."

Tony Lucca sang "Go Your Own Way" with Jordis Unga.
