“The Voice” Crowns Tessanne Chin as Season Five Winner
The NBC singing competition, “The Voice,” concluded this week as the winner was crowned. The season five champion is Jamaican Tessanne Chin.
Chin said the following, according to the Associated Press, about the win: “It is out of body. I feel like, is this really happening, you know? This can’t be real. Like unbelievable. Unbelievable.”
Chin is 28 and a native of Kingston. She was about to stop singing when she earned a spot on the television show.
“I was literally at the end of a road, you know, and coming to a place in my life where I was like, ‘Am I going to keep doing this and feeling like I’m not getting anywhere? Or am I going to give this another shot?’ And thank God, thank God, I was able to give it another shot,” she said.
Adam Levine, Chin’s coach on the show, secured his second win. Levine also coached Javier Colon to a win in 2011, which was season one of the show.
“In the seasons past where I have kind of fallen short in my opinion, if I’m looking at it analytically, it’s by not being able to give enough because I’ve been super busy,” Levine said. “So I tried to kind of thin things out so I could devote most of my time to just get to know these guys and instill them with the confidence that they needed to win.”
The runner-up of the competition was 16-year-old Jacquie Lee, who was on Christina Aguilera’s team. The third place finisher was Will Champlin, who was on Levine’s team.
Right before the show announced its winner, Aguilera teamed up with Lady Gaga to sing “Do What U Want,” one of Gaga’s songs. After the duet, Aguilera told the audience the following:
“This is the first time we’ve ever met. I just have to say guys, she’s like the most down to earth, real person that I’ve ever met in this business and female to female, in this industry it’s really hard to find that kind of a person.”"The Voice" Crowns Tessanne Chin as Season Five Winner by Jim Vassallo
