The winner of "The Voice" season 5 will be announced in a few hours from now. One of the finalists - Tessanne Chin, Will Champlin or Jacquie Lee - will be crowned champion on Tuesday night at a glittering event that will witness performances by Lady Gaga, OneRepublic, Celine Dion and Ne-Yo.
The grand finale of "The Voice" season 5 will be telecast live on NBC at 9/8c on Tuesday (9 p.m. EST / 7.30 am IST, Wednesday).
The finalists sang some big classic songs on Monday to woo the Americans. Tessanne sang Whitney Houston's "I Have Nothing" and "Try" by Pink. She also performed "The Beatles' "Let It Be" with her coach Adam Levine. Her solo performances were matured and powerful while the duet with her coach was beautiful.
Will Champlin sang Gavin DeGraw's "Not Over You" and Bryan Adam's "(Everything I Do) I Do It for You". He also performed with his coach Adam to Elton John's "Tiny Dancer". He gave justice to the songs and proved yet again that he can't be written off.
Jacquie Lee rendered Dreamgirls' "And I'm Telling You I'm Not Going" and Amy Winehouse's "Back to Black," which she sang during the audition. Her performance was powerful as usual, hitting the high notes perfectly. She also sang "We Remain" from The Hunger Games with her coach Christina.
Looking at the iTunes rankings of Mondays' performance, Tessanne is ahead of the other two finalists with two of her songs listed in top ten while Jacquie has one. iTunes downloads matters, as it contributes to the total votes of the contestants.
