Ultimately, it was father-of-two Dylan who took home the title. 

On Seven, Monday night’s Australian Idol Grand Finale saw 23-year-old Denvah Baker-Moller from Rockhampton, 25-year-old Amy Reeves from Broome, and 31-year-old Dylan Wright from the Northern Rivers take to the stage as the final three.

Ultimately, it was father-of-two Dylan who took home the crown. 

Each contestant had to sing a song in one final effort to impress Australia. 

First up was Denvah singing Fleetwood Mac‘s Landslide.

“You always pick the perfect song,” Kyle said.

“You nail it. That’s why you’re in the top three.”

Next up was Amy singing Bang Bang by Jessie J featuring Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj. 

“I’m all teared up because, as you know, I knew your Dad,” Marcia said after her performance.

“And in heaven, I’m sure he’s up there, smiling on you. I am so proud of you. You have just stepped up and [are] leaving people in your wake.”

Finally, Dylan sang Elton John‘s Tiny Dancer.

“It is so your turn, Dylan,” Amy Shark said.

“I’m so happy for you.”

“The whole country’s in love with you, You are fantastic,” Kyle added.

Halfway through the finale, the votes were tallied and Denvah was sent home in third place, with Dylan and Amy making it through to the top two.

“Regardless of what happens, I think you’re going to be just fine,” Marcia said.

Kyle said, “Denvah, you are an absolute star, thank you very much for sharing your gift with us.

“I’m a new country fan because of your music.”

Finally the winner was announced, with Dylan Wright named Australian Idol of 2024.

“I’m about to cry, thank you!” he said, after his name was called.

Wright has won a recording contract with Sony Music Entertainment Australia and $100,000 in prize money.
