A big congrats to Tessanne - based on Monday's performances we thought she was clearly the winner, although I believe the voting tallies are cumulative, aren't they?
I think with the right manager, Jacquie can potentially have a much better career than Tessanne, though.
I like Jacquie, so don't take what I'm saying the wrong way .. if you remove the Janis Joplin outright screaming and belting it out from Jacquie, she is an average singer .. LA / Nashville / New York / Austin .. etc .. are chock full of Jacquie's .. now, she has the boost of coming in second, she has a Coach that "says" Jacquie is ready for Prime Time, and Christina has considerable clout in the Music Business .. so, if Christina gets behind her in a big way, finds the right material that suits Jacquie's style .. she may have a shot at a degree of success .. short term .. is she a long term, budding musical Icon in the Rough .. ?? That will have a long lasting career .. ?? Doubtful, IMO .. however, IMO, a Janis Bio Pic / Janis Tribute Band or if 1960's Rock makes a big come back, she may end up the Queen ..
On the other hand, Tessanne not only has the pipes, but she seems to be a gracious, centered performer that has the charisma to captivate an audience and comes from a Professional background .. add that to the fact that the International music scene tends to embrace multi-ethnic singers .. lastly, Adam has proven without a doubt he will get behind his people .. he took Javier Colon on tour with Maroon 5 and actually did whatever he could to help boost Colon .. unfortunately, Colon in the Sea of Like Vocalists, was unable to propel his first season win into a strong fan base, and I believe at this point is basically relegated to the State Fair / Club / Casino circuit using the Voice win as his calling card .. that's not really a bad thing, very few can actually make a living in the Music Business ..
