The Voice: Tessanne Chin’s “Bridge Over Troubled Water” — #1 on iTunes!
For the first time this season, a contestant on The Voice has secured the #1 spot on iTunes, and it should come as no surprise to anyone who watched last night’s show that it’s Tessanne Chin. Her rendition of “Bridge Over Troubled Water” was nothing short of flawless, and earned rave reviews from the judges.
The Jamaican reggae-fusion singer has shown that she is a true professional. She was shown getting emotional during rehearsals but viewers were left out of the loop as to what was making her so upset As her coach, Adam Levine, pointed out last night, Tessanne was struggling with some serious personal issues but was still able to not only perform but knock it out of the park.
“'I don't even know what to say. That's crazy what just happened,” he said after getting emotional, himself, during the performance. “The things that they edited out of the package obviously that were upsetting you are very intense and very serious and we all respect that, but I know what you're going through.”
Struggles or no struggles –– it’s amazing to think a reality show contestant has nabbed the top spot on iTunes, beating out established artists like Eminem, Justin Bieber, and even The Voice’s own Christina Aguilera.
