Jordan Smith's performance of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" on Monday's episode of "The Voice" sold enough downloads on iTunes' singles chart that he bumped Justin Bieber out of the No. 2 spot, but he couldn't unseat Adele from No. 1.

Lee University's Jordan Smith performs on NBC's "The Voice."

Smith, the Lee University singer considered the front-runner on Season 9 of "The Voice," cracked iTunes' top four within 10 minutes after the show signed off Monday night. Smith was No. 3 after 10 more minutes and by 11 p.m. he was No. 2, where he held on overnight while the rest of his "Voice" peers began filling up the iTunes' chart behind him. 

By Tuesday morning, seven of the top 10 slots were filled with "Voice" performances from Monday night. Those singers were, in order, Barrett Baber, No. 3; Madi Davis, No. 4; Knoxville's Emily Ann Roberts, No. 5; then Bieber singles at spots six and seven. "The Voice" contestants picked up again with Jeffery Austin, No. 8; and contestants Amy Vachal and Shelby Brown, filling out the top 10. 

Purchasing a contestant's single off iTunes is one way in which viewers may vote for their favorites on "The Voice." Results of Monday night's full voting will be revealed tonight when the show airs at 8 p.m.
