The Voice Grand Final just made to 1m metro, a number that was strong enough to power Nine to a primary and network share win. The final of the 2019 season recorded an audience of 995,000 for the episode and then climbed to 1.123m for the Winner Announced. That figure is just up on last year where the Grand Final episode did 987,000. The most-watched episode of The Voice this year was the Sunday episode in week three with 1.105m watching.
Sydney powerhouse Diana Rouvas was been crowned winner of The Voice 2019.
Nine has reported it was the closest voting results in the history of The Voice Australia, with Rouvas, a returning All Star, edging out runner-up Daniel Shaw, and the other two finalists, Zeek Power and Jordan Anthony.
Her winner’s single, Wait For No One, was available after the episode went to air.
Rouvas is the first winner of The Voice to be coached by Boy George, who said: “Diana makes me cry when she sings. She has a voice that is a gift from above and I’m super proud to have coached and been touched by her amazing talent.
“I can’t wait to perform with her again. She is Australia’s Barbra Streisand and I don’t say that lightly.”
In winning The Voice season eight, Rouvas has earned a recording contract with EMI Recorded Music Australia and $100,000 in prize money.
