WASHINGTON, December 16, 2013– Tonight at 8 p.m. on “The Voice,” the final three contestants will have one last shot at impressing all of us before the champion is named on the Tuesday night season finale.
Among the competitors are the 28-year-old Jamaican-Asian singer Tessanne Chin, the 16-year-old Jacquie Lee from Colt’s Neck, N.J. and Will Champlin, the 30-year-old singer-songwriter son of Bill Champlin from the band Chicago.
According to several polls Tessanne Chin is the favorite to win tonight, and for good reason. She comes from a family of musicians who influenced her to start learning music at the age of six. She is experienced as a singer and a performer.
She is already a recording artist and has an album titled “In Between Words.”
Last week her moving performance of “Bridge Over Troubled Water” reached the number one spot of the iTunes chart and left Adam Levine speechless. When he did find words Levine said; “I don’t even know what to say. That’s crazy what just happened. I’ve never been speechless on the show before. I think that that’s probably the most flawless and graceful performance I’ve ever heard on this show.”
Even Blake Shelton agrees the competition is Chin’s to win. Since Shelton is the winningest coach in the show’s history, his opinion warrants serious consideration.
If Chin does win she will be the first contestant of Asian descent to be named champion.
But a lot can happen on a live TV show, so counting out the other two contestants would be a mistake. Will Champlin also has music in his genes. His dad was singer, songwriter and keyboardist for the band Chicago and he is a working musician.
The third finalist Jacquie Lee is just 16, but her voice sounds a lot older. Her rendition of the Motown classic “Who’s Lovin You” brought the house down. And let’s not forget who Lee’s coach is.
Christina Aguilera knows a lot about starting a successful career at an early age and her influence on Lee could be the edge she needs to win.
Tonight’s final performances offer the contestants one final shot at dazzling the judges and the audience. Regardless of who wins, there will be memorable performances tonight making the show one of the best in the history of “The Voice.”
Join fans from around the globe for our live online chat and share your thoughts on the show as it unfolds. The action starts right here at 8 p.m.
