Before Tessanne Chin was announced the winner of The Voice tonight, her biggest moment on the show was her performance with five-time Grammy winner Celine Dion.

Standing side by side, Celine and Tessanne sang Love Can Move Mountains to thunderous applause.

Following the performance, Tessanne tweeted: "Absolutely speechless Miss @celinedion thank you for making my dream come true. You are even more amazing in person!!! It was an honour."

Tessanne also got another surprise when she was given a car courtesy of Kia Motors, as well as the other finalists, Jacquie Lee and Will Champlin.

As she was about to enter the SUV, host Carson Daly asked whether she wanted an SUV in Jamaica.

"We have the worst roads," she responded.

The night was also filled with other performances from the top 20 contestants, along with One Republic, Paramore, Ne-Yo and Aloe Blacc.

Following the many performances in the two hour-long show, the contestants lined up on stage to speak to their coaches and await the results.

"A better coach for me I could not find. I thank you everyday for choosing me," Tessanne said to Adam Levine. "It has been a great pleasure, you have been a great, solid guy."

With nerves and emotions very high, Champlin was announced third place winner.

Then said Daly: "The winner of The Voice is Tessanne Chin."

Following the announcement, tears flowed as Tessanne sang a song written for her by One Republic.
