Tessanne Chin - Underneath it all ("The Voice" performance, 2013)
Tessanne's choice for her competitive song for the "top 8" stage of The Voice competition was "Underneath It All", written by No Doubt and Jamaican dancehall artist Lady Saw. Tessanne's Jamaican roots meant that she could comfortably sing both the song and the dancehall-reggae break.
The judges made the following comments about her performance:
- Adam Levine - "It's perfect and this is who Tessanne is in all ways"
- Christina Aguilera - "I finally heard something I was searching for"
- Cee Lo Green - "It made me feel irie!"
All were generally complementary about hearing some Jamaican styling in Tessanne's song, reflecting her Jamaican roots.
Tessanne announced at the beginning of the song "This is for my baby", presumably husband Michael Anthony Cuff Junior!
