    Finally watched this show because I have always liked Tessanne Chin and wanted to see how she would do. She didn't disappoint.

    How are you familiar with her? Are you a big reggae fan?

    She was phenomenal.

    Tessanne is this season's Judith Hill. She will be a front-runner until the viewers turn on her for being a professional.

    Been listening to reggaemusic since before I could walk.

    She has an older sister that sings named Tami Chynn but Tami is just a pretty girl with a weak voice and she mostly sings hooks on dancehall songs. Tessanne was the younger, chunky sister but she surprised everybody with her vocal range when she released Hideaway about 7 or so years ago. Not a studio singer, she preferred to play with a band and had no problem singing live. Since then has released a smattering of songs and she appeared at any little venue that she could but never really gained more than a core following. Over the last couple of years she has released a couple of one off songs with Shaggy but still was a relative unknown outside of the reggae crowd. She sees herself as more than just a reggae singer and seems to gravitate towards rock so her choosing a song from Pink seemed appropriate. Just being on the show is a great move for her, a win-win situation.

    I had to hit "the youtubez" to figure out who she was. Good lord Judith can sing! When I saw her first clip I was hooked on her voice as well as her rendition of that song

    And the battle with Karina Iglesias? Good god!

    At 26 she had the decency to not jump at all the offers made to her once Michael Jackson died but instead chose to put in old fashioned work in order to hone her craft. After his funeral the general public really didn't see her and she faded away into obscurity.

    It's crazy that she was cut but I can sort of understand the "too professional" complaint. She has a voice to kill for, poise on stage, a body of a runway model, face of a print model plus she sang with MJ. She is the entire package and a marketer's dream. It is almost unfair for her to compete with an 18 year old kid that has been singing in the shower and the occasional karaoke. But you know everyone loves the underdog.

    Tessanne is about the same age as Judith and has performed for an even longer period of time. If the judges keep going on about how perfect she is and how professional she is, I can see it hurting her just as much as it hurt Judith.

    I like Tessanne but she is starting to sound too predictable
