The Voice Highlight After blasting her way into the live rounds of the popular United States-based television show, The Voice, Jamaican artiste Tessanne Chin once again delivered a stellar performance and dominated the social media platforms.
With US $100,000 and a record deal with Universal Music Group on the line, last night the members of Team Adam Levine and Team Blake Shelton each showcased their vocal ability with songs selected by the coaches.
Having survived the blind auditions, the battle round and the knockout rounds, Tessanne stated that “I definitely feel like I’m getting closer to the artiste I want to be.”
With nine contestants before her, they certainly saved the best for last as Tessanne closed the show. The ‘Jamaican Powerhouse’, as she is called, performed a cover of Jimmy Cliff’s Many Rivers To Cross which once again earned her a standing ovation from coach Adam.
An emotional and teary-eyed Tessanne once again blew away the judges with her vocals.
“As amazing and incredible as that was, I was not surprised. I knew you were capable of those soaring vocals, I am a fan,” Christina said. Cee-Lo donned a Jamaican accent, telling Tessanne that they certainly saved the best for last and that she was one of his faves.
As before, Adam heaped praises on Tessanne’s performance. “You have such a golden soul and you are a wonderful human being. Your talent is mind boggling. In my opinion, it does not get better than this,” he said. Following her performance, and even before, social media lit up with comments about the Jamaican singer, who has cemented herself as a favourite in the competition.
Among the comments on Twitter were @CraftyCleopatra: TESSANNE!!!! Girl, your performance brought me to tears. You crossed your rivers. You’re it baby!”
There was also one from user @iam_ikonik: The tremendous support Tessanne is receiving from Jamaicanssays a lot about us.”
Now, with the performance behind her, it is up to fans to vote. Each individual is allowed to vote a maximum of 10 times via phone or online at www.thevoice.com. Voting lasts for 12 hours after the live shows.
Fans can also vote via iTunes by downloading the songs Tessanne performed on the show. Each purchase will count as one vote.
Eight contestants will be eliminated and the top 12 will be revealed on Thursday night’s episode.
