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.
