Jacquie Lee Has Strong Night on The Voice Finale
Jacquie Lee from Colts Neck put on a strong performance in the finale of NBC's The Voice in her quest to win it all. Now she needs your support to win it all.
"Jacquie Lee may have saved the best for last," said 94-3 The Point morning show host Lou Russo who has been closely following the competition all season as the 16-year-old advanced through the competition.
Russo was most impressed with her duet with coach Christina Aguilera of "We Remain" from soundtrack of "The Hunger Games." "Christina is widely considered one of the best voices in the industry, and Jacquie had absolute no problem matching her note for note, a feat that a majority of current pop stars could never achieve," said Russo.
Aguilera heaped praise on Lee as well after her performance of Jennifer Hudson's And I Am Telling You. 'I'm completely speechless. The amount of talent you have in that little body for being 16 years old is unbelievable. I literally can't believe what I just witnessed.
Lee went up against Tessanne Chin of Jamaica and Will Champlin of Los Angeles in the first night of the show's season finale.
Voting is on until 11 a.m. on a number of platforms. Jacquie's dad Richard says that the contestant who has the most cumulative iTunes sales (from the beginning of the competition) will get a multiplier bonus of votes for the finale.
There were a number of viewing parties around Monmouth County including at i Play America in Freehold, MJ’s at the Buttonwood and Panther Auditorium at her school, the Ranney School in Tinton Falls according to the Asbury Park Press.
"We’re glued to the television. Her run has been amazing,” Head of Schools at Ranney, John W. Griffith told the Press.
