Well, my issues with the song choice are pretty much moot right now, because Jordan delivered yet another all-time classic. This vocal was just blindingly excellent. There wasn't a single moment where he wasn't in control of his voice and its direction. The runs, the falsetto, the extended power notes. EVERYTHING about this just screamed iconic. He earned the standing ovation he got from all four coaches, and while the choir was definitely expected for this song, I would argue he didn't even need it. This guy is amazing. Just amazing. In a funny moment, Carson tells Jordan he must be used to this rabid reaction, and then wonders aloud why Adam looks so mad sitting in his seat (took the words right out of my mouth, Carson).
