Tessanne Chin into final three on Voice

Tessanne Chin, from Kingston, Jamaica, with the accent to prove it, is through to the final three on NBC's The Voice, the singing talent contest that has gripped her island home, almost as much as the final of the men's 100m in the Olympics usually does.

On the results show on Tuesday night, Chin's was the first "saved" contestant named by host Carson Daly, evoking a look of great joy and satisfaction on the face of the lady who has become a crowd favourite.

James Wolpert, her fellow Team Adam contestant, was not so fortunate. He was the first of the final five to depart, having not garnered enough votes to land in the top three.
Jacquie Lee from Team Christina was the next contestant to go through to the top three, leaving the "nervous two" - Will Champlin and Cole Vosbury to await the announcement of who would take that final spot going into the last show of the contest next week.
When it came, Will Champlin was in and Vosbury out, leaving Blake Shelton, the most successful coach with three wins out of the four completed seasons, without a contestant in the final.
Shelton therefore joins Cee Lo Green on the coaching sidelines, while Adam Levine, although losing James Wolpert, goes into the final contest with a strong hand: Champlin and Chin versus Christina Aguilera's lone survivor, the 16 year old Jacquie Lee.
On Monday's performance night Chin scored big with her rendition Simon and Garfunkel's "Bridge Over Troubled Water" and the resulting number one ranking of the song based on iTunes sales proved she was now a firm favourite to reach the final night and perhaps fulfil earlier predictions that she would win.
Nothing is guaranteed, however, and on that final night, all that has gone on before might be of no significance.
