Yes, I was team Jackson Thomas all the way and right up until the end, was getting excited that he could actually take out the prize, but there beside him was the big voiced blonde Anja Nissen who in the end, took out The Voice Australia Season 3.
With rocker Frank Lakoudis and duo ZK bumped out (I blame ZK’s terrible ‘Don’t stop believing’ GLEE moment from last week) many were tipping Team Kylie’s sweet sounding Johnnie Rollins to win with SportsBet placing the 29-year-old at 1.5 odds to win but it wasn’t to be with Johnnie the next to be ousted leaving Jackson and Anja as the final two.
Anja who is the first pop artist to win, looks set to possibly break The Voice winners curse that has seen series one winner Karise Eden go into hiding while promising new music for the last two years and last years winner Harrison Craig, while doing well, pretty much aimed at the nan and pop demographic.
Along with the win, Anja’s coach Will.I.Am announced his intentions to sign the 18 year old to his label (no more than 15 minutes after the announcement, it’s sitting on wiki)
The Voice Australia returns in 2015 for series four.
