Adam Levine certainly knew what he was talking about when, in the early days of season five, he labeled Tessanne Chin a front-runner on The Voice. Since then, the talented singer has delivered one awe-inspiring performance after another. As such, it really shouldn’t come as a surprise that she was declared the season five winner during yesterday’s finale.
We all knew Tessanne’s victory was in the works and, based on his Monday night feedback, so did Adam. He told Tessanne, “I know — in my mind and in my heart that you’re the winner of this show.” Favoritism aside (you gotta feel just a little bit bad for Will Champlin), it looks like Adam’s heart and his mind were right on the money!
The crazy thing is, prior to her stint on The Voice, Tessanne was thinking of giving up on music for good. Backstage after the big win, she admitted, “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.”
We’ve included the video of Tessanne Chin’s finale performance for your viewing pleasure. Check it out and let us know if you think she deserved to win The Voice!
