Season 22 of “The Voice” has come to a close and standout star Omar Jose Cardona left all of his cards on the table. The Orlando native wowed audiences with his versions of Michael Jackson’s “The Way You Make Me Feel and Queen’s “Somebody to Love.”

During the 34-year-old singer’s first performance, he shined metaphorically and physically in his silver punk rock-style jacket and gloves, reminiscent of the King of Pop himself. In addition to bringing his own vocal flair to “The Way You Make Me Feel,” he also showed off some of his dance moves, giving the audience a full show.

Throughout the season, Cardona has been compared to Freddie Mercury, so he decided to go in that direction for his second finale performance. Cardona channeled his inner-Queen, singing “Somebody to Love” with the assistance of a stunning choir and lyrics in the background.

Cardona first captured the hearts of America and “The Voice” judges with his powerhouse performance of Journey's "Separate Ways.” He has gone on to give electrifying performances like when he sung “Livin’ On a Prayer” by Bon Jovi or when he killed his duet of Stevie Wonder’s “Signed, Sealed, Delivered” with his coach John Legend.

His journey on the reality show has not been easy. Last week, to the surprise of Legend and others, the Puerto Rican singer had to sing his way out of elimination. He serenaded the audience with Celine Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On” to which all four judges turned their chairs around instantly earning him the fifth and final spot in the finale.

The talented singer finished in fourth place with Bryce Leatherwood of Team Blake winning overall.
