‘The Voice’ crowns winner of season 5 : worldleaks
“Jamaica is celebrating with the United States,” said host Carson Daly after the big bring out, as fireworks exploded in the background.
Sharing Tessanne’s victory was her coach, Adam Levine — the second time one of his artists has claimed the top prize.
“It’s been nothing but a joy to work with you,” she told her mentor seconds before learning about her win. “You’ve been a shoulder to cry on, you’ve been a friend, you’ve been invested, you’ve been true. I love you, I trust you.”
Tessanne’s emotional journey pushed at the heartstrings of fans, especially after her stunning, tearful performance of Simon and Garfunkel’s “Bridge Over Troubled Water” last week.
Alluding to the personal circumstances involving his mentee, Adam explained at the time, “The things that are upsetting you are very intense and very serious, and we all respect that, but I know what you’re going through.”
But on Tuesday, everyone on “The Voice” stage was smiling — including the singers Tessanne defeated. Sixteen-year-old Jacquie Lee, coached by Christina Aguilera, was the runner-up, while musician Will Champlin — also from Team Adam — came in third place.
But Jacquie and Will didn’t walk away empty-handed. In fact, they drove away: At a special tour of Universal Studios’ back lot, all three finalists found out that they had each won a brand-new Kia car.
Tessane’s win for Team Adam means that the Maroon 5 frontman now has more ammunition to use against his archnemesis Blake Shelton, who twitted him throughout the season with his three consecutive wins. (Blake was officially toppled from his throne when his remaining artist, Cole Vosbury, was eliminated in week six.)
So Blake and Adam’s epic bromance will become even more fiery next season, when the show’s mainstays return alongside mentors Shakira and Usher (swapping seats again with Christina and CeeLo Green). “The Voice” returns for a sixth season with a special two-night premiere on Monday Feb. 24 and Tuesday Feb. 25.
