It’s been a crazy season of “The Voice” UK, but at the end, there can only be one winner. So who was it in this case? We’ll get to that slowly and surely, as we start to narrow down the field in this article starting with the 4th-place finisher.
4th place – Jamie Johnson. He seems like a very nice young man, but Kylie Mingoue’s representative just didn’t have anything that made him pop, or stand out more than the average singer out there. He may have a good career still, but it will take a lot of work still.
They revealed that Jamie was the winner a little earlier in the night, and then made us wait for a while longer to find out the rest of the results. In the end, though, the British public surprised us yet again.
The winner of this season is Jermain Jackman. For the third straight season, the artist named the favorite going into the finale ended up losing. Tonight, both of the favorites in Sally Barker and Christina Marie lost to a guy who managed to built a ton of momentum over the course of the night. While we didn’t necessarily love either one of his first two performances, his story was unbelievably compelling as he spoke more and more about wanting to be an agent for change in his community. He seems like a very bright, passionate young man, and while we don’t know if he will ever be a major pop star on the radio, this is a guy who we see using this platform to do a load of good. He’s just set huge expectations for himself that he will have to find a way to match.
