The Voice Will Crown A Winner Tonight During FinaleBy: Lindsay McCane - December 17, 2013
The Voice will air their fifth season finale tonight, and people all over the country are anxiously awaiting the results. However, no one could be more nervous than the three contestants remaining who have been battling it out over the past few months. Adam Levine’s Tessanne Chin and Will Champlin, along with Christina Aguilera’s Jacquie Lee, took to the stage last night to belt out one more fierce performance before the viewers started voting. Each contestant performed three songs, including a duet with their coach.
Chin overpowered the stage, like she does every week, with her renditions of Pink’s Try, which she first performed during her blind auditions, The Beatles’ Let It Be along with coach Adam Levine, and Whitney Houston’s I Have Nothing. After her final performance, Levine gave Chin the ultimate compliment saying that he knew in his heart she would be the winner of this show. “It’s sacred ground. We lost Whitney too early. So many people stay away from her because it’s incredible, one of the best vocals ever recorded … impossible to replicate,” Levine said. “You are just capable of anything and it blows me away. I know in my mind and heart you are the winner of this show.”
Another member of Levine’s team Will Champlin also stole the stage during his performances of Elton John’s Tiny Dancer, which he performed with Levine, Gavin DeGraw’s Not Over You , and Bryan Adams’ (Everything I Do) I Do It for You.
“There isn’t anybody who works harder than Will,” Levine said after Champlin’s first performance. “You wouldn’t be here today if you hadn’t worked as hard as you did. That’s inspiring.”
Finally, the teenage sensation Jacquie Lee took the stage and performed Amy Winehouse’ Back to Black , We Remain off of the Catching Fire soundtrack with Aguilera, and And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going from the film Dreamgirls.
“The amount of talent you have in that little body, for being 16 years old, is unbelievable,” Aguilera told Lee, whom she often compares to herself. “To see you evolve on the show – sister, that was amazing,” Blake Shelton added. “I love this girl so much,” Aguilera continued. “She is a gem .… She is going to go so many places.”
