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.
