With the number of the contestants in the American talent show The Voice whittling down each week and with all eight fighting to gain a place in the top six, Jamaican powerhouse Tessanne Chin once again towered above the rest.

Tessanne was the second contestant to take the stage this week, following James Wolpert.

Performing No Noubt's Underneath It All, Tessanne solidified her presence as a top contender.

She rocked the performance with a Caribbean flavour, which coach Christina Aguilera had requested last week.

Adam Levine started off the comments stating: "This song was just so tailor-made for you."

"It was perfect, it is one of the most well-rounded thing you could sing on the show. I'm proud of you," Levine said after a much-deserved standing ovation for Chin.

Cee-Lo added that the performance was awesome.

"You made me feel irie! It was really impeccable. I've been to Kingston and Port Antonio and I know the immense beauty born out of that island," he said.

Christina Aguilera, who had petitioned to hear more of Tessanne's Jamaican accent was excited.

"I heard something I was searching for. This is the first time I feel like you broke it down and were able to tap into your truth," she said.

Earlier, the show opened with a solid performance of Feel Good by Robin Thicke.
