‘The Voice’ Ends In Controversial Finish As Voting Site Crashes
Diana took home the crown!
Last night, Diana Rouvas took home of title of The Voice Australia champion, but although the extremely talented 35-year-old was a fan-favourite to win, the result didn’t come without controversy.
Fans were left angry and confused after a technical glitch meant voting crashed mid-way through the show’s finale.
"Hundreds of thousands of votes have been coming through during tonight’s show which has caused some technical problems for a small number of viewers, however votes are continuing to flow through," Channel Nine said in a statement during the show.
"The technical problem has now been solved. We appreciate everybody’s support for the artists and the show."
Naturally, people weren't too happy with the mishap.
But as we did say, Diana was a favourite to win thanks to her powerhouse voice, so fans were ultimately thrilled over the result:
Diana (who was coached by Boy George) won $100,000 prize money and a recording contract with Universal Music or EMI.
Watch her perform her brand new single 'Wait For No One' below!
