Pittsburgh-Area’s Chris Jamison Finishes Third in ‘The Voice'

He may not have finished first, but the North Hills High School grad won legions of new fans.



Hours before the final results of voting were announced, Chris Jamison tweeted that "The Voice" competition was “a dream come true” and “by far the best experience of my life.” 

The top prize went to Craig Wayne Boyd of Nashville.

Jamison’s entire family was in the studio audience for the final show.

"It was a great night and a lot of fun," Michelle Jamison told the Columbus Dispatch afterward. "Maybe we are a little disappointed that he didn't win, of course, but I still think he's a winner. He made it to the top three on 'The Voice,' that's a mind-blowing accomplishment and we're so very proud of him."

During the Tuesday night show, he sang a duet with Jessie J on her song “Masterpiece.”

"It was amazing to see the whole show, especially seeing Chris perform with Jessie J, something I never ever expected I would see my brother doing," Sammi Jamison said.

Jamison, who graduated from North Hills in 2012, is a junior marketing major at Capital University in Columbus. He took the semester off from school to compete.
