Leanne Mitchell wins 'the voice'
Sunday 03 June 2012
Tom Jones declared: “This confirms that there is justice in the world,” as the act he coached won the BBC's singing competition, The Voice.
The former holiday-camp singer Leanne Mitchell, 28, was crowned the winner in last night's final after a public vote, claiming the prize of a recording contract. After singing James Brown's "It's a Man's World", she said: "I am starting to believe in myself."
The runners-up were Tyler James and Bo Bruce. The show, however, has failed to match Britain's Got Talent, its rival variety show's audience figures, with only around 4.5 million tuning into last week's semi-finals.
