"The Voice" has revealed the champion of its fifth season. On Tuesday, December 17, Tessanne Chin edged out the other two finalists, Will Champlin and Jacquie Lee, to claim the winner title. It was quite predictable since she had been a frontrunner and shown consistent performance on the competition.
Tessanne's win marks a second victory for coach Adam Levine, who helped Javier Colon won in the inaugural season. After the results were announced, Tessanne sang an original song penned by Ryan Tedder titled "Tumbling Down".
Earlier that night, she teamed up with Celine Dion to perform "Love Can Move Mountains". Runner-up Jacquie took the stage with Paramore to sing "Ain't it Fun", while Will who finished third joined Aloe Blacc for a rendition of "Wake Me Up".
Other musical guests in the season 5 finale were Lady GaGa, Ne-Yo and OneRepublic. The Top 20 contestants also returned, catering the crowd with a group performance of "Tonight is the Night".
While the fifth season has just been wrapped up, NBC is already gearing up to kick off the next installment. The network has announced the judge line-up for season 6, with Adam and Blake Shelton being confirmed to return. Shakira and Usher, who replaced Christina Aguilera and Cee-Lo Green in season 4, will reprise their roles.
The new edition of the singing competition series will debut with a special two-night premiere on Monday, February 24 at 8-10 P.M. and Tuesday, February 25 at 8-9 P.M.
