The Voice – And The Winner Is……
It was no surprise that Harrison Craig won the second season of The Voice Australia tonight he was outselling the other three finalists on the iTunes charts.
This makes it a second win for Seal as a coach on the show giving him a 100 percent success rate. It also goes to show that you don’t need a strong team to win. You just need one good singer. Harrison will win a record contract with Universal, $100,000 and a Ford Kuga.
His single Unconditional is now out and his debut album will be out next Tuesday.
Runner up was Luke Kennedy, with Celia Pavey coming third and Danny Ross the first to be eliminated tonight.
The live finale had a lot of live performances starting with the final for singing the John Farnham song “You’re The Voice”. Clearly it has been a long day as it took me until nearly half way through the song before I realised why they were singing it. Duh!
Each finalist sang a duet with their coach. Luke Kennedy and Ricky Martin’s duet of Roxanne was fantastic. Ricky proved why he is such a superstar.
Joel again imparted a sense of fun into the show and hopefully NINE won’t have a brain explosion over that incident last week and will bring him back next year. He is the most entertaining of the coaches.
Delta and Celia sang Fleetwood Mac’s You Can Go Your Own Way. There were some nice moments but not sure the song really suited either of their voices.
Seal and Harrison Craig then did a duet called My Brother and they both looked like they were enjoying it. Seal’s gold shoes were fantastic.
Robin Thicke and One Republic also kept the energy up and gave good performances.
Delta sang her new single with Ryan Tedder on piano. It did cross my mind if Seal thought she was over emoting. If you missed the furore over that go here. The last to sing for the night was Ricky Martin with his new single and Twitter was rife with rumours he had lip synched.
However TV Tonight was quick to ask the question and he tweeted:
The runners up don’t go home empty handed and received $20,000 each to kick start their career. It will be interesting to see which of the contestants get signed up with record labels in the next few weeks.
