Tonight Australia finds out its 2014 Winner of The Voice. This is the first time I’ve watched the show from the auditions to the finals and it reminded me why I love and loathe reality singing contests. Love because Australia has so much unknown talent out there and this is a way we get to see it when we normally wouldn’t. On the flip side, I loathe it because I always get invested in someone who ends up getting eliminated way too early.
My initial favourite was the amazing Matthew Garwood who got eliminated in the battle rounds (side note, I find that part of the competition a little weird) but tonight I am backing Australia’s next rock god Frank Lakoudis. Giving awesome renditions of some of the best classic rock songs, we need someone like him on the Australian music charts.
