The Voice of Holland: eventually it’s official!

If you’re Dutch, you simply couldn’t have missed it, otherwise you might remember my previous The Voice posts. Yesterday the big final was and as expected: Ben Saunders won! In my first The Voice post, just the day after the first episode aired, I said: “I bet he’s going to win this competition” and indeed he did! Ben’s performance in that very first The Voice episode, became a hype and Ben instantly was a favourite. Here’s Ben’s first performance again:
He’s just amazing and so different than you expect. I hope he will have an amazing career in music and I look forward to his album. Here’s his first offical single:
I really am a Ben fan, but yesterday Kim, another contestant on the show, sang “To Make You Feel My Love” with Adele herself. It was so beautifully and professionally done! Together with Ben’s very first performance, that performance was my favourite moment of the entire season. So here it is:

Because the show was such a success here in the Netherlands, the format has been sold to lots and lots of countries. The first auditions have actually just started in America. Rumour has it that Alicia Keys will be a coach in the US edition of The Voice, which will be broadcasted by NBC.

P.S. RTL has removed most videos from the Voice from youtube, that’s why there’s only sound in the Kim/Adele video.
