UNIVERSAL CITY, California – No one is more surprised by the results of Tuesday’s The Voice finale than season five winner, Jamaican powerhouse Tessanne Chin.
“It is out of body,” Chin said, holding her trophy backstage after the NBC singing competition. “I feel like, is this really happening, you know? This can’t be real. Like unbelievable. Unbelievable.”
The 28-year-old Kingston native had nearly given up on her dreams before landing a spot on the NBC singing competition. She called the experience “life-changing.”
“I was literally at the end of a road, you know, and coming to a place in my life where I was like, am I going to keep doing this and feeling like I’m not getting anywhere? Or am I going to give this another shot? And thank God, thank God I was able to give it another shot,” she said.
Chin’s coach, Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine, was also thankful to add a second win to his resume. “It feels good man. I like to win. This is fun,” Levine said after the show.
