Jermaine Paul's incredible talent earned him the top prize on The Voice, but the humble singer still cannot believe he won.

Jermaine Paul wins on The Voice

It seems like everyone knew Jermaine Paul's star power — except Jermaine Paul. The winner of The Voice season two tearfully accepted his crown, thanking everyone including his mother-in-law and Jesus. However, the win still didn't feel real when he talked to reporters after the show.

"I didn't feel good about the overall outcome," he told reporters. "I didn't know if I was going to win or not. I am very shocked. I honestly was ready to accept not winning. But I'm so excited."

The former back-up singer beat out Juliet Simms, Tony Lucca and Chris Mann for the top spot, thanks to his strong performance of R. Kelly's "I Believe I Can Fly" and some A-list fans in his corner.

"@JermainePaul deservesssss all of this!!!!! He has more talent in one hand...;-)))) congratulations brotha!!!!!!! Shine shine shine!!!!!!" Paul's former employer, Alicia Keys, tweeted after the show.

"She called me while I was up there on stage just to say how happy she was," he revealed of Keys. "She, Swizz [Beatz], her mom and the baby were all sitting on the couch watching the show."

However, no one was more proud of him than his wife — she even rushed the stage to congratulate her hubby after the confetti fell.

"She has been with me throughout this whole journey," Paul told People. "Leaving college, not going with basketball and going with music and sticking with it, having kids so young, and getting married even younger — it's been a tumultuous journey for us."

As for his coach, Blake Shelton? Well, the country singer now knows what Beliebers feel like.

"I don't feel as much proud as I do like one of those girls who was screaming for Justin Bieber and falling apart," he joked. "That's what I feel like. Jermaine is a guy who has been in the shadows, but he's stuck to his guns. 'I Believe I Can Fly' was the right thing to do."

We totally agree.

YES, HE SHOULD HAVE WON AND I AM SO GLAD THAT HE WON. THERE ARE NO DOUBTS IN MY MIND. I KNEW FROM DAY ONE HE WOULD BE "THE VOICE". HE IS NOT ONLY A POWERFUL PERFORMER HE MOTIVATES YOU WHILE LISTENING TO HIM SING WITH SUCH FEELING, EMOTION AND CARING IN THE WORDS HE SINGS. HE ALSO IS A GREAT CHRISTIAN FAMILY MAN. HE WENT OUT THERE ON THE STAGE AND LEFT IT ALL OUT THERE AND HE DID GREAT. HE STOOD OUT FROM THE OTHERS BECAUSE HE WAS REAL, HE SHOWED REAL GENUINE EMOTION THAT I DID NOT REALLY SEE IN ANYONE ELSE'S PERFORMANCE. I AGREE WITH HIS COACH BLAKE YOU DON'T REALLY LISTEN TO THE WORDS IN A SONG UNTIL YOU LISTEN TO JERMAINE SING THEM. CONGRATULATIONS JERMAINE.
