Following a season unlike any other, The Voice Australia has come to an end.

Bella Taylor Smith was announced as the winner of season 10, and will take home $100,000 and a recording contract.

 Team Guy’s Bella, as well as Team Jess’s Mick Harrington, Team Keith’s Arlo Sim, and Team Rita’s girl group, G-Nat!on all went head to head in tonight’s finale, putting in a last-ditch effort to win Australia’s votes.

However, Bella’s rendition of Never Enough from The Greatest Showman, and her duet with Guy Sebastian, where they sang Andrea Bocelli’s The Prayer, left Australia voting in her favour.

The finale, which was pre-recorded with alternate endings, was a top secret, with not even the contestants knowing who would win before the card was read out.

So, it’s pretty safe to assume that Bella is still celebrating in her home after the big victory!

“No words other than thank you,” the winner wrote on Instagram, going on to thank the team behind the show, Guy, her family, friends, and community for the love and votes.

“I absolutely cannot wait to continue to share and celebrate with you. xxx all the love in the world,” she finished.

This season of The Voice was the first on Channel Seven, who acquired the show last year. The first nine seasons appeared on Channel Nine.

The change in channel also saw a change to the format. Instead of going into a knockout round, selected artists from the blind auditions had to go through ‘The Cuts’.

After short sessions showcasing their singing, the group of 10 or more for each team was cut to a final five, which was taken to a final two the following round.

Last week we said goodbye to the likes of Ella Monnery, Lau Abend, and the Fuller siblings, who had a respective place on Team Guy and Team Jess.

Although we’ve reached a winner, the talent from this season has been undeniable.

Congratulations to Bella on taking out Australia’s votes!
