An emotional Tessanne Chin tonight saw off her Team Adam colleague James Wolpert as the first of the Top 5 contestants to be eliminated from the American talent show, The Voice.

But the next announcement by host Carson Daly was that, of the other four contestants, Tessanne was the first to make it to the top three.

Jacquie Lee and Will Champlin are the other contestants who will meet Tessanne in the final.

Cole Vosbury was the other contestant to be eliminated.

With just one performance left until a contestant is crowned the winner of The Voice, Chin's supporters were confident she would advance as they awaited the names of the top three contestants.

Chin stood out during last night's performance show, battling through tears with a performance that coach Adam Levine described as the best performance in the history of the show.

Last week Tessanne wowed fans with renditions of Bob Marley's Redemption Song and Katy Perry's Unconditionally which saw the songs moving up the iTunes chart.

After a world-class performance of Bridge Over Troubled Waters by Simon and Garfunkel last night, the song rapidly climbed the iTunes chart and settled comfortably in the number one position.

This automatically meant that Tessanne's votes were multiplied by five this week.

Questioned as to what moving on to the finals would mean to her, Tessanne declared it would be an honour.

"To have come this far is an honour in itself. To move forward would be a way for me to thank you for all your support. It would be a chance to change my life. I love you," she said.

Up for grabs are a record deal with Universal Music Group and US$100,000 (J$10 million).
