Bolt supports Tessanne on The Voice


Opening the two-hour completion with a rendition of Say It, Just Say It, the top 10 once again showed their vocal prowess and once again thrilled the judges, the audience and those at home.

With only eight guaranteed a spot to go through, all contestants brought their A- game.

After Team Blake’s Austin Jenckes belted out Your Love, fans were treated to a special guest appearance by the world’s fastest man Usain Bolt. Showing his support for Tessanne, Bolt told host Carson Daly that the support in Jamaica for the songbird has been ‘crazy’.

“We’re just trying to figure out a way to vote. Everybody (in Jamaica) is watching right now,” Bolt said.

Shortly after Tessanne tweeted “OMG, just died!!! Usain Bolt I am speechless!!! Thank you!!

With fans of Tessanne now becoming accustomed to her performing later down in the show, they were not disappointed when she finally took to the stage. After announcing that her journey on The Voice is like someone “gift wrapped an opportunity and gave it to me.”

Performing a rendition of Gladys Knight and the Pips’ If I Were Your Woman, it was a sassy and confident Tessanne that belted out the song.

“I don’t believe anyone’s ever done that song on the show and I know you have your apprehensions … But this song just solidified your presence on the show as a major contender. You are a wonderful human being and I love you,” her coach Adam Levine said.

While asking her more of Tessanne’s Jamaican accent, Christina Aguilera told Tessanne that she has a voice that can do so much.

“I want to hear more moments like this. I would love to hear more songs where I can hear different dimensions of you.”

Tessanne has had success in the past with songs such as My Kind of Love and Many Rivers to Cross. Fans can vote for Tessanne by logging on to or by buying her performance on The Voice on iTunes. Each song purchased adds five votes to Chin’s tally. Votes may also be cast by calling 1855-864-2306

After the 10 finalists perform and viewers cast their votes, fans on Twitter will be able to save one of the three lowest vote-getters from elimination during Tuesday’s live results show, with the results announced later in the programme.
