Just when we think the lovely Tessanne Chin has hit her peak, the Team Adam contestant once again manages to defy expectations. Last night, during the semi-final round on The Voice, Tessanne almost left mentor Adam Levine speechless — and that’s quite the accomplishment!
Tessanne Chin continues to deliver flawless performances on The Voice, leading us to believe that Adam Levine’s early front-runner claims may have been spot-on. Yesterday, the contestant took on the classic Simon & Garfunkel hit Bridge Over Troubled Water — and as usual, she offered up a unique spin on an old favorite.
Both singer and mentor were left incredibly emotional in the aftermath of the performance, which appears to have held some form of personal meaning for Tessanne. Adam alluded to this mystery while raving, “That’s crazy, what just happened. Not only knowing the context of what’s going on in your life, but also just the sheer talent is just…I’ve never been speechless on the show before, but I think that’s probably the most flawless and graceful performance I’ve ever heard on the show.”
The good news continued well after the end of Tessanne’s performance on The Voice. Dedicated fans headed straight for iTunes to purchase the track, rocketing Bridge Over Troubled Water all the way to number one on the download list! Thrilled by this development, the singer took to social media to share her gratitude. “Oh my God!!!! It’s like 5:30am here but being woken up by this news is priceless!!! You did it!!! Thank you thank you thank you.!!!!”
