Tessanne Chin tops iTunes for The Voice; bonus points for Jacquie and Will, too
Tessanne Chin got to close a show on The Voice for the first time in five weeks.
And she made the most of it.
Her version of “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” complete with a glory note she might still be holding, was clearly one of the best vocals of the night on the Top 5 show of The Voice.
This morning, viewers rewarded Tessanne by putting her song at number one on the Billboard 200 singles chart.
That’s the first time a Season 5 artist has landed there when voting ended.
But as five singers compete for three spots in next week’s finals, Tessanne wasn’t the only singer to crack the Top 10 on iTunes and earn bonus points in the process.
Jacquie Lee did it, too, for the first time. Her rendition of “Angel” landed at number seven on the overall iTunes chart.
And it appears Will Champlin just slipped into bonus point territory at number 10 with “Carry On” by Fun.
Meanwhile, by genre, Voice contestants topped three charts: Tessanne did it on the pop chart, Will on the alternative chart and Cole Vosbury on the country chart with “Shameless.”
The complete rundown of where songs landed when voting closed at 11 a.m. follows:
#1: Tessanne Chin, “Bridge Over Troubled Water” — number 1 on pop chart as well.
#7: Jacquie Lee, “Angel” — number 6 on pop chart
#10: Will Champlin, “Carry On” — number 1 on alternative chart
#12: Cole Vosbury, “Shameless” — number 1 on country chart
#14: James Wolpert, “With or Without You” — number 3 on alternative chart.
