The Voice – an Australian reality talent show, based on the original Dutch version of the program created by John de Mol and part of a wider international franchise – is going strong with record-breaking viewership. Starting with blind auditions, battle rounds and then followed by live performance shows, the participants who go through the tough competitive stages and win the season receive a recording contract with Universal Music. The Season 6 of The Voice began on 24 April 2017. After a series of spectacular performances and intense fight for the top spot, the winner of The Voice Australia 2017 has been finally announced.
Judah Kelly is the winner of The Voice Australia 2017
Judah Kelly – more popular for his stage nickname ‘King Judah’ – has finally received the crown, winning this year’s season of The Voice. Coach Delta Goodrem is now credited with back-to-back victories in the talent series. Judah Kelly – who lived up to his stage nickname ‘King Judah’ – is excited and said he’s “pretty psyched” and overwhelmed by the victory.
With his goose-bump raising voice, the Queensland former back-up singer was crowned the winner after a solo performance of Climb Every Mountain and a mind-blowing duet with Goodrem of Beyonce’s I Was There. Expressing his happiness, Kelly said –
I’m so excited. I’ve just loved every moment and I’m just really glad there are people supporting me. The show is happy to work with you. I’m creating music that I love. And if I’m loving it then people listening will love it, too. The audience knows if you don’t love it.
I like to keep things very simple and basic. The goal from here is just to make a living from music. If it becomes fame and millions of dollars then that’s a cool bonus.
Judah Kelly gets to walk away with $100,000 prize money and contract with Universal Music. He had begun the season with the blind audition of Chris Stapleton’s Tennessee Whiskey. His fan following kept growing with each performance and his semi-finals version of Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah stood at No. 3 on iTunes Charts last week.
