But things are looking up in her personal life! According to her Facebook, Jess got engaged on November 24, 2012 to Chris Fadely. A wedding and winning The Voice? Talk about a standout year!

For her blind audition, Jess chose a slowed-down version of Elvis Presley’s hit “Can’t Help Falling in Love.” A similar version was done by alternative singer Ingrid Michaelson on her Be OK album.
Jess’s blind audition marked the first “battle” between newbies Usher and Shakira.
“I was haunted by the timbre of your voice,” Shakira said.
And though coach Adam Levine claimed Jess sounded “too much like Adele,” Shakira strongly disagreed and continued trying to convince Jess to be on her team.
But it was Usher’s charming grin that sealed the deal and Jess opted to be on Team Ush.
