Bella Taylor Smith is the Winner of ‘The Voice Australia’ 2021!

The Grand Finale of The Voice Australia has come and gone, and after an incredible season filled with some formidable talent, one performer has come out on top.

Bella Taylor Smith has been crowned the winner after her beautiful rendition of Never Enough from The Greatest Showman, pocketing a cool $100,000 and a contract with Universal Music Australia.

Bella faced three other contestants, Mick Harrington, Arlo and girl group G Nation, but despite putting up a serious fight, they were no match for her soulful voice.

Coaches Guy Sebastian, Keith Urban, Jessica Mauboy and Rita Ora each chose one person (or in Rita’s case, an entire group) to move forward and compete in the Grand Final.

For the very first time, it was Guy’s team that won.

It’s definitely been one heck of a journey to get to this point. First, it was making it through the Blind Auditions, then it was making sure to stand out among the rest.

After host Sonia Kruger read her name from the envelope, the teacher could hardly believe it, saying, “I’m so thankful. I can’t wait to see what incredible things are ahead for me. I’m really grateful for you [coach Guy], for everyone who voted and for my beautiful family who I love.”

Guy was ecstatic, saying: “I’m so proud. There are so many deserving people up there, but you are special Bella, go out there and kill it, I know you will.”

the 23-year-old celebrated her well-deserved win by singing her brand new single Higher, which is available to stream right now.
