Jordan Smith, the newly-crowned champion of "The Voice," might not look like your typical rock star — something coach Gwen Stefani noted a while back on the show.
But the 21-year-old college student from Kentucky told TODAY that he's fine with that, because what's inside him is what counts most.
"This whole time I've been proving that those things aren't really what matters," he said during his visit to the plaza Thursday. "When I won the show, it was just kind of a big moment for me, and I proved to myself, like, what's on the outside doesn't matter. It's all about what's in your heart and what you love to do and doing those things."
A worthy answer from a more-than-worthy winner. Congratulations again, Jordan!
"The Voice" returns to NBC in 2016 for its 10th season.
