Who Won The Voice Australia 2023?

 40-year-old Melburnian Tarryn was under the guidance of Coach Rita Ora throughout the competition. After an epic semi-final showdown to secure her spot in the grand finale, she worked with songwriters and producers to release Nobody, an original single ahead of her win.

The win comes as a surprise, with fans incorrectly expecting Charlie to take out the win early on in the competition. Charlie, alongside his coach, Guy Sebastian were pegged as most likely to win the competition, with odds sitting at $1.65 on Sportsbet a week out from the finale. 

Rita, who was the winning coach last season had been in the lead for most of the season, but as the competition reached the top four, she dropped into second place with odds of $4.00 alongside her mentee Tarryn.

Fellow international coaches Jason Derulo and Aussie coach Jessica Mauboy were unlikely to win the season, sitting at lower odds in the final round of the competition, with Jason and his contestant Ethan sitting on odds of $5.00 and Jess and Ezra sitting on $6.00 odds. 

“I would say this is the hardest year to pick a winner. Every coach has a shot at the title. Usually, there’s a front-runner or two, but this would be the best overall talent we have ever had,” coach Guy previously told Seven. 

“I have absolutely been blown away by the talent here,” Jason added. “I had high hopes, as I have worked with Australian producers and writers, but my jaw was on the floor with the talent of some of The Voice artists. I can’t wait for Australia to hear these performers.”
