Like a Magician Jamaican contender Tessanne Chin thrilled us last night with her rendition of the popular ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water.’ Just when we thought we heard the best we still have not heard the rest. This girl can sing. From now on she will be very hard to beat…but then again, this is America.
After a nervous night of waiting to hear the result the Voice host announced what all Jamaicans and the world were waiting on: The word that Tessanne was in the Top Six. It would be a blow to many of us if she had dropped out, especially after a sizzling performance the previous night when she sang ‘Underneath it All.’ So we will be in for the same thrill next week Tuesday night when they choose the Top Four competitors. Wow! Congrats to Team Adam for maintaining 3 of the 6 finalists. Good job!
