Her blind audition on The Voice got all four judges to press their buttons. She had not one, but two performances from the show reach the No. 1 spot on the iTunes singles chart during the season. But Season 5 winner Tessanne Chin says she still didn't see her victory coming.
"At the end of it, I was just like, 'Let it be.' We've all done all that we can," Chin told TVGuide.com after Tuesday's results show. "As you can tell, I was very, very shocked."

The 28-year-old Jamaican native was named the victor of Season 5 thanks in small part to her emotional, and subsequently memorable, renditions of "Bridge Over Troubled Water" and "I Have Nothing." "She consistently brought it performance after performance and she emotionally connected with America," executive producer Mark Burnett said. "I think she's really connected her heart with the viewers. The Voice is a very uplifting show and I think she's a very uplifting person."
The Voice will crown its Season 5 winner on Tuesday evening, but the hit singing competition is already looking ahead to next season.

Shakira, Antonio de La Rua
A Geneva judge has denied Shakira's ex-boyfriend, Antonio de La Rua, from having access to one of her bank accounts, The Associated Press reports.
According to de La Rua, he and Shakira made an oral agreement to continue their work relationship after their breakup in 2011 and that he remain one of Shakira's business advisers.

Last month, the judge ruled that de la Rua didn't have sufficient evidence to prove the aforementioned agreement and that Shakira is the sole owner of the account.
TV executives must have been happy to put a fork in the 2012-13 season. Ratings dropped across the board for broadcast networks due to fading reality franchises and the failure to launch any major new scripted hits. Cable also slumped, with audience levels flat compared with the previous season. And with the number of viewers who time-shift growing, the path to success is more treacherous than ever. Here are the shows that navigated the bumps — and the ones that became ratings road kill.
