After a star-studded few weeks of fierce competition, the winner of The Voice Australia 2023 has been crowned. 

From the moment the very first singer of the season took to the stage in the blind auditions, it became clear to coaches and viewers tuning in from home alike that this year’s competitors would prove to be tough competition.

In the end, whilst all singers proved why they had earned their spot in the final four, it was Tarryn Stokes who received the most votes and was crowned the official winner of The Voice Australia 2023, taking home the winning title, a cool $100,000 in prize money and a recording contract with Universal Music. 

When hearing the verdict, Tarryn was overcome with emotion, barely able to contain her excitement and surprise. 

“I feel like The Voice has actually changed my life,” she said shortly after winning.

Meanwhile, her coach Rita Ora was quick to share just how proud she was of Tarryn, telling the audience that it felt “good to win.”
