Eyes were glued to American TV station NBC last night as Jamaican singer Tessanne Chin blew away the coaches and audience when she auditioned for Emmy Award-winning vocal competition 'The Voice'.
The final performer for the two-hour show, Tessanne, who was accompanied by her husband Michael Anthony Cuffe Jr. and father Richard Chin, spoke about her career and her journey as an artiste prior to her performance. She also saw a video from Jimmy Cliff, who Chin sang back-up for in the past, wishing her the best of luck in the competition.
Chin sang Pink's Try and had the audience on their feet in seconds. Three of the four coaches (Adam Levine, Ceelo Green and Christina Aguilera) turned their chairs. Blake Shelton, however, was not very far behind.
At the end of the song, the battle began among the coaches as they begged Tessanne to join their respective teams. Despite many attempts at persuasion, Tessanne chose Adam Levine as her coach.
