This was the first time since season 6 that the winner has released a cover instead of a original song as their first single.
WinnerEditThis season was won by 22-year-old Christian singer Jordan Smith. He is only the third contestant mentored by Adam Levine to win.
Top 9 to top 4Edit
Fans were angry when it was revealed that the number of contestants would go down from 9 to 4. Fans of singers such as Amy Vachel and Shelby Brown complained that they felt that the cut was too severe and not fair while some complained that the show's producers were playing fast and loose with the rules.
