After weeks of competition and incredible performances, Diana Rouvas has been crowned the winner of The Voice Australia for 2019.
The powerhouse singer, from Boy George’s team, stood next to Daniel Shaw, from Team Delta, in the final two, when Sonia Kruger announced she had won the competition after public voting closed.
As this year’s winner, Diana has won $100k and landed herself a recording contract with EMI Music Australia, instead of the longstanding prize from the last seven seasons with major label Universal.
Her new single ‘Wait for no one’ is out now.
Diana wins against the odds
Diana, Zeek Power, Jordan Anthony and Daniel Shaw were all vying for the top spot, but earlier today data from both Spotify and Instagram suggested it was Daniel going into the final with more support - to the tune of thousands more fans.
Prior to the finale streaming data on Spotify seemed to suggest that Delta Goodrem's artist Daniel Shaw would be crowned the winner of The Voice, according to the Daily Mail.
The singer currently has 40,573 monthly listeners on the streaming platform, some of which he had before going onto the show.
And it’s the same story over on Instagram.
The Melbourne-based busker is also ahead of the other finalists, with 67,400 followers on the app.
Back on Spotify it’s Kelly Rowland's finalist Zeek Power, who comes in second with 39,910 monthly listeners, and Jordan Anthony Rabbone in third place with 18,147 monthly listeners.
Surprisingly it was Diana, with just 13,726 monthly listeners, placing last among the top four.
And Instagram had the exact same ‘finishing’ line up.
Zeek with 38,500 followers, Jordan with 21,500 followers at present, and then Diana with 8,500 followers.
Each of the artists' performances throughout the series have been put on Spotify for people to listen back too, making it a good indication of what fans have been enjoying most from the show.
Delta Goodrem will stand by both her artists
Regardless of who won in the end, coach Delta Goodrem said she would stand by both singers left from her team.
Speaking to The Daily Telegraph ahead of the final performances, Delta said she will support both musicians 'for life'.
“I have complete faith in them both and no matter what happens, once you're part of Team Delta, you're part of this team for life,” she told the publication.
