Lachie Gill has been crowned winner of The 2022 Voice Australia after just over a month of the season, filled with blind auditions, callbacks, battle rounds, and a semi and grand final.
The 24-year-old EX-football player won the $100,000 prize money and a recording contract with Universal Music Australia.
The final four, Team Rita’s Lachie Gill, Team Guy’s Jordan Tavita, Team Jess’ Faith Sosene, and Team Keith’s Thando Sikwila sang their hearts out last night in their final attempt to win the audience’s favour.
“Oh my God, I just… from the start I never would have expected this and I’m just blown away. Thank you.” Lachie, who was overcome with emotion said when hearing the verdict.
“First of all, it’s you, you won… Australia, thank you, this is amazing… I’m so happy for you. I can’t breathe.” His coach Rita Ora also said.
‘You’ve given me challenging songs, but you’ve always said, “Don’t try and be someone else, just do it Lachie’s way”,’ Lachie thanked Rita Ora for reminding him to stay authentic.
