'The Voice' finale: Tessanne Chin has been named 'The Voice'

The top 20 contestants of “The Voice” reunited on Tuesday evening to open the two-hour star-filled season finale before Jamaican native Tessanne Chin was named the “The Voice”.

Coach Adam Levine entered “The Voice” finale in the lead with two unique artists, Tessanne Chin and Will Champlin, who came in third place. The “Sexiest Man Alive" earned his second title with the powerhouse Tessanne since his first win in the premiere season, right behind Blake Shelton who has won the last three in a row.

The race to be named “The Voice” was a tight one. Sadly though, Christina Aguilera did not become the first female coach to win with the strong and talented singer, 16-year-old Jacquie Lee, which would have been a nice birthday present for Xtina.

Season five of ‘The Voice” ended with performances from Tessanne and her idol, Celione Dion, OneRepublic, Jacquie Lee and Paramore, Celine Dion and Ne-Yo, Will Champlin and Aloe Black and Lady Gaga and Christina Aguilera.

An original song was written and produced for the winner of “The Voice” for the first time ever by OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder, who also served as an advisor for the artists. According to Tedder, the task was difficult because the song was written without knowing who the winner would be. However, Tessanne Chin proved why she is now “The Voice” when she sang about “love and heartbreak that people can relate to” with "Tumbling Down".

"The Voice" auditions are now underway for the best singing competition on television. Season six of “The Voice” returns to NBC on February 24 with Shakira and Usher.
