Jordan Smith, the 2015 winner of U.S. reality show The Voice, has married his longtime girlfriend.
The singer exchanged vows with Kristen Denny in Middlesboro, Kentucky on Saturday (25Jun16), his representative confirmed to People.com.
“We’re beyond excited to announce that we are officially Mr. and Mrs. Smith!” the bride and groom said. “The journey so far has been amazing, and we can’t wait to continue on this path as a married couple.
“Our wedding has reminded us that we are just two best friends who realised we’re both the same kind of crazy and fell in love.”
Jordan, 22, appeared on season nine of The Voice between September and December, 2015. Shortly after emerging victorious with his coach Adam Levine, Jordan proposed to Kristen on New Year’s Day (01Jan16) in Boston, Massachusetts.
He announced the engagement news on Twitter by writing, “RINGING in the new year with my future wife! She said YES! #Mr&MrsSmith,” while Kristen posted, “Wow! Yesterday was absolute perfection! Thanks for all the well wishes and sweet messages! I am so incredibly blessed and I can’t wait to marry my best friend!”

Girls Aloud star Kimberley Walsh is expecting her second child.
The singer and her husband Justin Scott have revealed the happy news to Hello! magazine, explaining the couple has been trying for a baby ever since it wed in Barbados in February (16).
“We knew soon after we got married that we’d be very happy for baby number two to come along,” the 34-year-old mum-to-be told the publication. “When I first met Justin 14 years ago, I told him I wanted four children. We’re both over the moon.
“Before I had even taken a test, I knew it instinctively. I wasn’t suffering from morning sickness but tell-tale changes in my body made me certain I was expecting. When I took a home test early one morning to make sure, it confirmed what I’d already sensed. I was thrilled.
“The first thing I did was to wake up Justin and tell him, ‘You’re going to be a daddy again!”‘
Walsh and Scott first became parents in 2014, when their son Bobby was born.

Beyonce stunned the audience at the 2016 BET Awards on Sunday (26Jun16) by opening the ceremony with a surprise performance.
The Drunk In Love star is currently on a break from her Formation World Tour, but she gave the audience at Los Angeles’ Microsoft Theater a taste of the show by taking the stage to sing Freedom from her hit album Lemonade.
Before she appeared, her dancers walked through the aisles as U.S. civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr.’s famous I Have a Dream speech played over the speakers. Beyonce then took centre stage to perform in a large pool of water – the same routine on her Formation tour.
And the R&B superstar had one more surprise in store, as Kendrick Lamar was also on hand to rap his verse in the track, and the two stars closed out the performance in the water together.
Beyonce is up for six awards and so far has won two, the Video of the Year and the Centric Award for her hit Formation.
Her mum Tina Knowles accepted the Video of the Year trophy, as her daughter had to jet off to London as soon as she left the stage.
Other artists who took the stage early at the prizegiving included Desiigner, Alicia Keys and Fat Joe, French Montana and Remy Ma, and an early highlight was a tribute to late music icon Prince, which got the audience on its feet.
Prince’s close friend comedian Dave Chappelle introduced the set, which featured The Roots as the backing band for Erykah Badu as she sang The Ballad of Dorothy Parker, while R&B singer Bilal impressed the crowd with his passionate rendition of The Beautiful Ones.
The Roots later returned with Stevie Wonder, who celebrated Prince’s legacy by singing Take Me With U with Tori Kelly, and Jennifer Hudson also belted out an emotional version of Purple Rain.
Prince’s former flame and collaborator Sheila E. and Janelle Monae are also slated to perform a tribute number to the star later in the show.
Meanwhile, early trophies went to Drake and Future (Best Group), Bryson Tiller (Best Male R&B/Pop Artist and Best New Artist), Michael B. Jordan (Best Actor), Taraji P. Henson (Best Actress), Serena Williams (Sportswoman of the Year), and Steph Curry (Sportsman of the Year).

Emma Stone had a disastrous tennis match against Billie Jean King as she prepared to play the sports star in an upcoming comedy.
The Easy A actress portrays the former world number one in the 2017 sports comedy Battle of the Sexes, opposite Steve Carell, and when Billie Jean heard the movie star needed a few lessons she invited her for a game.
Emma admits she “kept hitting clunkers” but Billie encouraged her to forget about those bad hits and stay positive for the next ball – a lesson Emma has remembered ever since.
“Let me be clear about something, I was a complete novice,” she said at the annual Trailblazer Honors awards. “At that point I’d had three lessons, and she, on the other hand, is one of the greatest players of all time. So, a fair match it was not.
“What I lacked in tennis skills, I hope I made up for in my ability to connect with her essence and understand the greater lesson of what she was saying… ‘Let go of the negative, stay open and positive – the next ball might just be a good one’. I feel like that’s something Billie has lived by her entire life.”
The 27-year-old actress appeared at the New York ceremony, an annual show dedicated to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community, to honour Billie, who went public as a lesbian in the 1980s.
Before handing Billie, 72, the Trailblazer Award, Emma also said, “Even in the darkest times, (Billie) was always looking forward, visualising a bigger, brighter, more inclusive future… And not just for women, not just for the LGBT community, but for anyone who ever felt marginalised.”

Billy Joel made a surprise onstage appearance with his tribute band on Friday (24Jun16).
The covers band, named Big Shot, were performing at the Paramount in Long Island, New York when midway through the gig the real Piano Man star hit the stage for a three-song session.
According to Newsday.com, Joel performed covers of The Beatles’ With a Little Help From My Friends and the Rolling Stones’ classic Honky Tonk Women before singing his track You May Be Right, which was mashed together with Led Zeppelin’s Rock and Roll.
Joel, who was accompanied to the venue by his wife Alexis Roderick, also told the audience, “I only live down the road from here.”
The covers band, led by Michael DelGuidice, are all from Joel’s touring unit. After the Joel left the stage, Michael joked, “Was that a treat?… It took me six songs to realise what was happening.”
Meanwhile, Joel has announced he’ll be joining New York Governor Andrew Cuomo on a statewide bike ride to raise awareness about breast cancer. The singer/songwriter will strap on his helmet for the day-long charity trek, which begins in Long Island on Monday morning (27Jun16).
At the conclusion of the event, Cuomo will be signing legislation that expands access to screenings for the disease in New York state.
The Governor, his girlfriend Sandra Lee – a breast cancer survivor – and Joel will join hundreds of motorcycle enthusiasts for the ride into New York City.
Harley Davidson bosses are donating a custom-made motorcycle for the Governor to ride. It will later be auctioned off to benefit the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Busy Benedict Cumberbatch had to turn down the chance to be part of the Absolutely Fabulous movie.
The beloved British sitcom starring Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley, which is set to hit the big screen next month (Jul16), features close to 60 celebrity cameos from the likes of Kate Moss, Jon Hamm, Cara Delevingne, Stella McCartney, and Rebel Wilson, but despite filmmakers’ best efforts, the Sherlock star just couldn’t commit due to his tight work schedule.
In her onset diary, published in Britain’s Telegraph Magazine, Jennifer writes, “Mandie Fletcher, our director, is trying to lock down the casting of cameo roles between takes and sometimes I have to sit with her in a nice chair, eating a delicious Brie baguette, and throwing out names like Benedict Cumberbatch.
“Although Benedict Cumberbatch, it turns out, is busy for the next five and a half years…”
Saunders admits he wasn’t the only star who turned her and Fletcher down, adding, “What is it with actors? We are offering tiny, tiny, tiny roles that will take up minuscule amounts of time and it’s, ‘Oh no, sorry, I’m busy doing films’, or, ‘So sorry, I am going round the world with all my actor friends for the next two years’, or a simple, ‘I’m dead!'”
But she’s still more than happy with the starry cameos that feature in the film, especially that of supermodel Kate Moss.
Jennifer reveals she wrote a substantial part for the British beauty and sent it to her for approval before the supermodel had even signed off on the film, hoping she’d say yes. Kate is accidentally killed by Jennifer’s character Edina towards the beginning of the movie.
Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie opens in the U.K. on 1 July (16).

Animated movie sequel Finding Dory has sunk the competition at the U.S. box office with a big second-week splash.
The long-awaited Finding Nemo follow-up has scooped up a massive $73.2 million (£53.5 million) for an impressive 10-day tally of $286.6 (£209.4 million). The film, featuring the voice talents of Ellen DeGeneres, Diane Keaton and Ed O’Neill, has now hauled in over $396 million (£289.3 million) at the global box office.
Finding Dory’s fish power was too much for the Independence Day sequel, which opens in second place with $41.6 million (£30.4 million) in America.
Independence Day: Resurgence, which was made for an estimated $165 million (£120.6 million), was not a hit among critics when it opened on Friday (24Jun16), and only 41 per cent of film fans ‘liked’ it.
Meanwhile, action comedy Central Intelligence has picked up a solid $18.4 million (£13.4 million) in its second weekend on release in the U.S. The movie, starring Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Kevin Hart, has now earned $69.3 million (£50.6 million) in just 10 days.
Blake Lively’s new shark-attack thriller The Shallows debuts at four with a $16.7 million (£12.2 million) first weekend haul, and Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey’s new historical drama Free State of Jones rounds out the U.S. box office top five with a lowly $7.7 million (£5.6 million).
One of the big hits of the weekend was Paul Dano and Daniel Radcliffe’s quirky new movie Swiss Army Man – about a castaway who befriends a dead man – which opened on just three screens in New York and Los Angeles, but took in $114,000 (£83,300), giving it the best per-screen average of the summer so far.
