[tr-shareit ]The Voice judge, Blake Shelton, has predicted that Jamaican sensation, Tessanne Chin will win season 5 competition.[/tr-shareit]
Boasting an incredible vocal talent and a rich and diverse culture, Tessanne who has gained the support of Jamaican’s home and abroad, has sang her way into the heart of Shelton.
Shelton, who has won the last three seasons as coach, said in an interview on TODAY Entertainment that going by the contestants’ last performance, Chin would be the clear winner.
“And if you go by this week’s performance, everything points to Tessanne right now, so that wouldn’t surprise me to see her win,” Shelton commented.
Shelton’s final contender for the title, Cole Vosbury, was eliminated Monday night, along with James Wolpert from Adam Levine’s team.
“I’m bummed about it. I wanted that for Cole. He’s just a good dude, he truly is,” Shelton told TODAY Entertainment.
“But that’s not all it takes to win this thing. You’ve got to have something that none of us can figure out,” he added.
When asked who he thinks will follow in Bradbery’s footsteps this year, Shelton says his vote is for Team Adam’s Tessanne Chin.
“Tessanne is my pick to win and for no other reason than I have eyes, and I can look at iTunes and see what happened yesterday.
“I think with her performance of “Bridge Over Troubled Water”, something happened. Something clicked.
“She’s been great all this time and I’ve been one of the first one’s who has been frustrated with the fact that she’s been kind of held to a reggae sound.
“Just because she’s from Jamaica, people expected her to do a specific sound from that country.
“Tessanne should never be limited.”
“She should never feel like she could only do one thing.”
“She can do everything. And I think that when she did “Bridge Over Troubled Water”, everybody went, “Oh my gosh!”
“This has nothing to do with her accent or where she’s from.”
“This has to do with who else in the world can sing like this girl sings?”
“I’m excited about that for her.”
The Voice now has three artists representing two coaches in the final round. Team Adam’s Tessanne Chin and Will Champlin will compete for the title opposite Team Christina’s Jacquie Lee.
The Voice airs Mondays at 8 p.m. and Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on NBC.
