Chin, whose parents are musicians and who sang backup for reggae artist Jimmy Cliff, was the only remaining finalist who got all four judges (Levine, Christina Aguilera, Blake Shelton and CeeLo Green) to turn their chairs during the blind audition when she performed Try by Pink.

Last week, show host Carson Daly described Chin as “resilient” and noted that her performance on Dec. 9 of Bridge Over Troubled Water was a high point “because of how much it moved her coach. We don’t see Adam Levine get speechless, and when he’s speechless, you’ve made a pretty big impact.”

When asked what she would need to do to win, Daly said she needs “one more song like Redemption Song or Bridge Over Troubled Water.”

The Voice winner, who gives Coach Levine a second champion during the show’s run, delivered a moving performance of Whitney Houston’s I Have Nothing during Monday night’s broadcast.

To close out the show and the season, Chin performed her customized version of the song Tumbling Down by OneRepublic founder Ryan Tedder, who is the in-house songwriter-producer for The Voice.

Season 6 of The Voice returns with a two-night premiere starting Feb. 24 at 8 ET/PT, when Shakira and Usher will rejoin Levine and Shelton as judges.
