Starting with his The Voice debut, Justin Aaron quickly made an impression when he made the bold choice to sing John Legend's 2015 hit, "Glory" for his Blind Audition. The Grammy-winner didn't end up turning his red chair, confessing he "overanalyzed" Aaron's performance. However in a surprising twist, Gwen Stefani was the only Coach to turn her chair, automatically making the Junction City, Kansas native a part of Team Gwen.
From there, it all worked out in Aaron's favor: His Knockout Round rendition of “Can We Talk” by Tevin Campbell was dubbed the "sexiest" of the season by Camila Cabello and he consistently avoided being voted into the bottom each week during Live Shows. He made it very far into the competition, ultimately eliminated in the Top 8—just days before the Finale—as the last member of #TeamGwen standing.
In addition to his vocal talent, the Coaches and Voice family praised Aaron for his personality. "It's very hard for me to find words right now because I'm very emotional," Stefani said before Aaron was sent home. "I was up all night praying for you, thinking about this. Camila turned to me and said you are the kindest person on the show this season and everybody feels it."
Though his time on Season 22 was cut short, Aaron is still looking towards the future. Read on to see what the 34-year-old has been up to since leaving the show.
What is Justin Aaron doing now after The Voice Season 22?
Following Bryce Leatherwood's win in the Finale, Aaron wrote a lengthy Instagram caption to reflect on his time on the show.
"Wow!!!!!!! I never in a million years thought that I would be apart of this amazingly beautiful and very diverse cast known as @nbcthevoice The Voice Season 22," he said. "From the very beginning to now my mind is still blown and I am in awe. Jesus you never cease to amaze me."
He continued, "To my amazing iconic Coach @gwenstefani You are such a light that this world needs and I am so thankful that I got the awesome opportunity and privilege to work with you. Your friendship is such an honor and I know I have said it before but I want to and need to say it again thank you for allowing God to use you to minister to me."
In the time since, Aaron posted a behind-the-scenes video of a recent photo shoot, signaling he is definitely ready for his close-up. He also shared a message from his manager that said "he is ready to get to work!" and is currently accepting bookings for performances on his personal website. So if you want to sign up to see Justin Aaron in-person at your very own event, now is the time. And as 2023 approaches, Aaron is poised for even more success.
"In all that I do God I look to you," he said on Instagram. "You thought 2022 was big !!!!! Oh just wait 2023 here we come."
