Bookies had backed Leah for several weeks as their favourite and I was right behind them but as Andrea opened her mouth to sing ‘My Immortal’ I suddenly started to waver my opinion and thought she could actually win on the back of that performance.
I was slightly shocked that Matt Henry left the competition before Mike Ward, maybe I hadn’t given enough credit to the popularity of country music in the UK.
As Andrea became the winner of this years The voice, it wasn’t just bookies, Will I Am and the majority of the audience who were shocked, her own Mother looked as though you could have knocked her down with a feather. Maybe her reaction was due to the raving reviews of the mentors, obviously Will but also Jessie J who actively encouraged viewers to vote for Leah.
So that’s it for another year, hopefully we will be hearing from Andrea and Leah again unlike last years winner Leanne Mitchell.
The Voice was vastly improved for 2013 and I look forward to the next one.
