NBC Tonight Show Music Video (DailyMotion) – The Voice 5 Winner, Tessanne Chin, Performs “Tumbling Down”

On January 17, 2013, Tessanne Chin was crowned the new winner for the U.S. version of The Voice. She won Season 5. Tessanne was given a coronation song, and it is being marketed as her winner’s single. The song is called “Tumbling Down.” Songwriters include Ryan Tedder and Noel Zancanella.

On January 18, 2013, Chin made an appearance on NBC’s Tonight Show, hosted by Jay Leno. She performed her new single.

So far, “Tumbling Down” has gained a little traction on iTunes. It is at #30, two days after The Voice 5 finale. By way of comparison, while Tessanne’s performances during the show did much better than last season’s American Idol favorites (as far as we know), this coronation song is not jumping off to a fast start. It will need some legs from somewhere besides the show to take off. But so far, it doesn’t seem like The Voice really does much of anything to promote its winners.

YouTube Video: Candice Glover’s Performance Of “Cried” Single On Live With Kelly And Michael

Candice Glover is the winner of American Idol 12. She is supposedly going to release an album called “Music Speaks,” but it keeps getting delayed. But for now, she has put out a song called “Cried.” This is the lead single for the upcoming album.

Candice appeared on Live With Kelly and Michael to sing “Cried.” She was on the Tuesday, December 17, 2013 episode.

Glover is pretty much a flop so far in music sales. Unlike Scotty and Phillip, who both went platinum with their singles, Candice crawled her way into the top 10 on iTunes with “I Am Beautiful,” but she then quickly disappeared. That song peaked at #93 on the Billboard Hot 100 and only made #33 on the R&B chart. “Cried” was not listed in the top 1500 on iTunes when I checked. However, some of this does not appear to be Candice’s fault. I mean, Scotty and Phillip have been everywhere. But Candice is almost nowhere to be found. It seems she isn’t getting promoted like the others.
