After coach Christina Aguilera requested to hear more of Tessanne Chin’s accent, her request was granted when the Jamaican songbird belted out a Caribbean-flavoured version of “No Doubt’s Underneath It All.”
Chin, who in her pre-performance interview said the song would give her chance to delve into her culture, had the audience screaming, especially when she moved into Lady Saw’s deejay segment of the number.
Chin certainly brought her Jamaican vibe to the stage and was rewarded with a standing ovation from her coach, Adam Levine.
Adam was overjoyed, saying that the song was “tailor-made” for the Jamaican singer.
“I finally heard something I was searching for,” said coach Christina Aguilera. “You were able, with this performance, to tap into your roots.”
“It’s just the most perfect thing for you,” he said, adding that he was proud that they could find a way to tie Jamaica and America in the NBC TV competition.
Coach CeeLo Green said the performance made him feel “irie”, then added:
“It was really impeccable.”
