Well in no surprising news, it’s bye bye to Kylie Minogue and Will.I.Am for the 2015 season of The Voice Australia, replaced with one new face, one returning face and one addition to an existing team.

It’s not so confusing once it’s all spelled out.

Ricky Martin is back on board along with fellow judge Joel Madden who this year, will be joined by brother Benji (as one coach), Jessie J (It’s not about the money money..we don’t need the money money…) is this years newest face and the returning coach?  Well, it’s none other than our favorite Aussie songstress, Delta ‘Delts’ Goodrem!

We all knew when Kylie announced her Kiss Me Once Tour for 2015 that she’d be a no show…Will.I.Am?  Perhaps it came down to a work clash as he’s just started season three of The Voice UK (and not the utterly horrible decision he made by getting involved in 2014 winner Anja Nissen’s winners single – god awful by the way).

The addition of Benji Madden was a no brainer.  The two are hugely popular here, have a great following and their work together on The Voice Kids made for great viewing.  Jessie J’s addition too was predictable but wise.  J has a strong following here offering up a string of hit singles plus her double season stint on The Voice UK gives her plenty of knowledge and ammo to come into our version with.

Ricky.  We all love Ricky Martin.  Nuff’ said.

Delts.  Must admit, I was very surprised by her addition (or re-addition) to this years coaches.  Bumped for Kylie last year and relegated to The Voice Kids, Delts is back on board for the 2015 season.

Anja Nissen Wins The Voice Australia

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.
