The bookies have been backing her for weeks, Jessie J and Will.i.am both said they wanted her to win but tonight Leah McFall did not claim The Voice title.
Just a few minutes ago, as Leah stood beside Andrea Begley and Mike ward on the BBC stage, Holly Willoughby revealed that the Belfast born girl had not received the most public votes and that instead the record deal would be going to visually impaired singer Andrea Begley.
The result doesn’t seem to be a popular one and as the news broke, Will.i.am stormed off the set and wasn’t on stage with the rest of the coaches and contestants as Andrea performed for the last time.
Will took to Twitter to blast the result and when one fan talked about applying for the show so they could meet him, he simply replied:
Will later added:
“You should feel the audiences vibration in the room tonigh after the publics vote…its #unexplainable…so sad…#perplexed”
“Andrea is amazing…#dontGETmeWRONG…but we know who has the incredible #voice”
It seems that many viewers agree with the Black Eyed Peas star and one fan tweeted:
“Omg cannot believe it. I love Andrea but Leah should have won. #thevoiceuk”
“Winner has fab voice but so out of date! wanted Leah to win :-(”
A third said:
“according to twitter the winner of #thevoiceuk should be #leah so who the hell voted for andrea if leah was favourite? I don´t really know!”
Some fans did look on the bright side though and one mused:
“But, with show like this – as we see with The X Factor – Leah will go on to do amazing things. I can’t see it with Andrea #TheVoiceUK”
What did you think of the result reality TV fans? Should Andrea have won? Why didn’t Leah get the votes? As always, leave your comments below….
