‘The Voice’ Contestant’s Cover Of Queen’s ‘Somebody To Love’ Is Seriously Giving Us Chills

Freddie Mercury would be proud.

When Jordan Smith appeared on the blind auditions for The Voice, the judges were so absolutely blown away by his powerhouse version of Sia's "Chandelier" that coach Adam Levine took to Twitter to ask, "Jordan!!!! Are you a unicorn? Did I just find a unicorn?" 

While Jordan may or may not be a unicorn (he probably really is), one thing is clear: he is one of the best performers that has ever graced the stage of that show.

Fighting for a spot in the finale, Jordan performed a cover of Queen's "Somebody to Love" backed by a full choir and light show. Clad in a black jacket with a sparkly lapel, he wasted no time attacking the song, to the crowd's delight. The choir filled out the performance without overpowering it, as Jordan's voice is strong enough to shine through.

His runs were incredible, his tone was great, and it is no question that it was one of the best performances that has ever taken place in the history of the show.

It appears that Jordan had a pretty good time with it, too.


While not just anyone can do justice to a classic Freddie Mercury tune, Jordan's shiver-inducing performance made Adam leap out of his seat to clap in admiration.

It's clear to see why here:

Even though voting is over, Jordan's song can still be purchased on iTunes.
