Last night on the second Live Show for The Voice 2017, we said goodbye to another of our finalists. Leaving the competition was Bojesse Pigram from Team Kelly, with fellow teammate Spencer Jones surviving the bottom two sudden-death sing-off.

Hailee Steinfeld is an extremely talented Academy Award-nominated actress and multi-platinum global artist. She will be performing a medley of her brand-new single ‘Most Girls’, and her hit single ‘Starving’, which achieved double-platinum sales in Australia.

The remaining teams and Top Ten are as follows:

Niall Horan will also perform at The Voice finale.

Interesting to see if the Today Show has secured him to perform as well.


#163

@CBR Richard Wilkins mentioned this morning that his first performance here will be on The Today Show.


#164

Thanks! Didn’t have a chance to watch the show this morning.


#165

Jessica Mauboy will perform her new single Fallin’ on the semi final next Sunday, June 25. The song will also feature on the second season of The Secret Daughter which is being filmed in Sydney for Seven, and included in the soundtrack album.

Nine promoting Seven’s show. How nice of them. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


#167

Alfie Arcuri will also perform on next Sunday’s semi final. Jennifer Hudson will stay in Sydney for a couple more days mentoring the eight remaining contestants. Only four will make it to the grand final.
My fellow Delta fans were very upset after she lost two contestants in one night: Claire and Tim, leaving Judah as the favourite to win the title.
Tonight’s episode finished right at 9.30pm. Even though it takes about 3 minutes to put up a set for each performance, I still think the producers can better manage the show so it will not run way overtime.

Oscar and Grammy Award-winning Jennifer Hudson wowed the crowd with a stunning rendition of her brand-new hit single ‘Remember Me’, while Hailee Steinfeld performed an energetic medley of two of her hits – ‘Most Girls’ and ‘Starving’.

The remaining eight Artists will now prepare to perform in The Voice Semi-Final on Sunday June 25, 2017 at 7:00 PM on Channel Nine, with special musical guests Alfie Arcuri and Jessica Mauboy performing live in-studio.

I am very late to sampling The Voice, but I watched the performance show on Sunday night and I don’t know if its the contestant or the production quality, but the vocalists did not seem to have the strong voices X Factor used to have, especially the females. I know X Factor was almost over produced.

In comparison they made Jennifer Hudson sound phenomenal.


#170

She is anyway but The Voice hasn’t discovered a single successful talent yet.


#171

I couldn’t agree more. I was waiting on the female contestants to really hit notes, similar to Dami Im or even the Aus Idol Contestants.

I couldn’t see much point of difference to this show, but I guess that is because the swinging chair round has finished.


#172

I wonder why Nine can’t remove this from or put up a notice like “it’s too late to vote now” for the encore screenings?


#173

Sonia Kruger told viewers that the voice auditions for 2018 are still open.


#174

Scheduled for 2.5 hours and it still goes over time. Disgusting.


#175

Tonight’s semi final was way too long, finishing at 9.53pm. Considering the top six contestants had to sing again, the producers should have left out a guest performance.
The four grand finalists are:
Judah Kelly (Team Delta)
Lucy Sugerman (Team Seal)
Fasika Ayallew (Team Kelly)
Hoseah Partsch (Team George)
Noah Cyrus (younger sister of Miley) will join Katy Perry and Niall Horan on the grand final next Sunday.

###The Voice Winner

Judah Kelly, a 20-year-old musician from Queensland, is the winner of The Voice 2017.

Australia voted for Judah as the winner of The Voice 2017, outlasting runner-up Hoseah Partsch, and fellow Top Four finalists Fasika Ayallew and Lucy Sugerman, and giving Delta Goodrem her second straight win as a Coach on The Voice Australia.

Delta Goodrem said, “I’m enormously proud of ‘King’ Judah, this is just the start for him.”

The huge result for Judah capped off the biggest night in The Voice Australia history, with stellar performances by international superstars Katy Perry (‘Swish Swish’), Niall Horan (‘Slow Hands’), and Noah Cyrus (‘I’m Stuck’).
Judah delivered a medley of incredible performances throughout the night, opening the show with Katy Perry and the rest of the Top Four to sing her hit single, ‘Chained To The Rhythm’, along with an incredible duet of ‘I Was Here’ by Beyoncé alongside Coach Delta Goodrem, and an unforgettable rendition of ‘Climb Every Mountain’ by Rodgers & Hammerstein.

This was capped off with the World-First debut of the winner’s single, ‘Count On Me’, available to stream and download right now on iTunes and stream on Apple Music.

Channel 9’s Head of Content, Production and Development, Adrian Swift, said: “We are so proud to have found a voice as truly brilliant as Judah - he epitomises what this show is about - finding the best voice in Australia.

THE Voice Australia promised fans that Katy Perry would perform live during last night’s grand finale, which was clinched by ‘King’ Judah Kelly.

But according to Mail Online, the pop superstar was actually getting ready to board a flight at Sydney Airport as her “live” performance was broadcast on TV.

Mail Online claims it has obtained photos of the 32-year-old walking through the airport terminal as her performances were being shown on Channel 9. The network did not provide comment to the website.


#180

Another failure this season for The Voice. Fasika would have been the only option to have somewhat of a career.
