Tessanne Chin has big plans to celebrate her Voice win: Jamaican rum!

"Some good rum, good Jamaican rum," Chin told E! News last night after winning The Voice. "No, I'm going to go to a wrap party tonight … there's so many people behind the scenes that you don't know that made this possible and I just want to celebrate with them."

"It's unbelievable. I'm just so grateful," Chin said. "I worked very hard for this moment."

Her reaction when her name was called? "I don't think I can say it on TV," Chin said.

Chin beat out Jacquie Lee and Will Champlin to take home The Voice season five crown. Her coach, Adam Levine, praised her. "Tessanne Chin deserved to win this and there's no one on this planet Earth other than her family and her husband who is more proud of her—this was all her."

What's next Levine? A lot of R&R.  His plans include "absolutely nothing" and to "play a little golf, wake up at a noon for the first time in a while."

There's a place for him to stay in Jamaica. Chin said Levine has become like extended family and she'd love to introduce him to authentic Jamaican cooking. "I just think the world of him. I have a lot to be grateful for as far as Adam is concerned because he definitely led me right."

In the video above, host Carson Daly presented Chin with the envelope he read announcing her victory, and Blake Shelton—whose three-season winning streak was disrupted by Chin—tried to snatch it. "I'm going to sell it on eBay, give me that," Shelton said.

The Voice returns for season six on Monday, Feb. 24 with coaches Shakira and Usher.

(E! and NBC are both part of the NBCUniversal family.)
