With only two weeks until a winner is crowned in the American talent show The Voice, anxiety was at an all time high for supporters of Jamaica's Tessanne Chin.

With only five contestants guaranteed a spot in the semi-finals, this was the last opportunity for fans to instantly save one of the contestants via tweeting.

In the spirit of the Yuletide season, Kelly Clarkson opened the show with her latest Christmas single 'Underneath the Tree' and prepared the contestants for the inevitable voting results.

Adam Levine, who had pulled off a 'Houdini' act by having all his contestants saved from eliminations in two consecutive weeks was hoping for that trend to continue into the semi-finals.

Last night, Blake Shelton admitted that Tessanne was a world class vocalist and voters certainly agreed.

With both of her performances of the previous night making it into the top twenty on the iTunes chart, the TessTop4 parties held across the corporate area certainly paid off.

After announcing that her family's support meant everything to her, Tessanne breathed a sigh of relief as it was announced that she was guaranteed a spot in the semis.

"Their support has meant everything. They believed in me when I didn't believe in myself. I want to thank them for always believing in me," Tessanne said.

Tessanne also joined contestants Matthew Schuler and Jacquie Lee earlier in the night for a rendition of 'You Got the Love' by Florence Welch. She also joined all the contestants for a spectacular rendition of 'O Holy Night'.
