Facing some tough competition in the final round, Tessanne Chin emerged victorious on the season finale of "The Voice" and appeared on the "Today" show on Thursday (December 19) to chat about her big win.

The season 5 champ talked about singing with legendary powerhouse Celine Dion in the finale, gushing, "Oh my gosh. You have to understand, for me she has always been that lady. That artist that I look up to the most and just...to just share a stage with her and she's even better in person... Just a gracious, wonderful lady and put me right at ease because it's nerve-wracking!"

Later, Tessanne was asked what career advice Celine gave her, to which she laughed, "Well, she asked me if I was married and I said yes and she asked me if I had kids and I said 'no, not yet,' and she said, 'Hm, five years. Wait five years.'"

After almost three months of competition, the Jamaican talent on Team Adam bested Will Champlin and Jacquie Lee to take home top honors.
