Who won The Voice UK 2021?
After up to three performances in Saturday’s live show from each act viewers voted for their winner.
With the most votes it was Team Anne-Marie’s Craig Eddie who won The Voice UK 2021.

Craig said after his victory: “I’m shocked. Honestly.. thank you to everyone, thank you Scotland, thank you to everyone who voted. Thank you to Anne-Marie. I cannot express my appreciation enough.”
Of Craig, Anne-Marie said on the show: “I love you Craig. You are a proper artist. You’ve blossomed. You are the real deal. And I just want to say thank you for making my first show so special.”
Saturday’s show began with solo performances from the final four.
Olly’s finalist Grace belted out Before You Go by Lewis Capaldi, Team Will’s Okulaja showcased his take on Counting Stars by OneRepublic, Team Tom’s Hannah sang Little Runaway by Celeste and Team Anne-Marie’s Craig performed Train Wreck by James Arthur.
Following the solo songs, each of the acts duetted with their coach in a socially distanced performance.
Hannah took to the stage with legend Sir Tom to duet on Bee Gees’ To Love Somebody while Craig duetted with Anne-Marie singing Don’t Speak by No Doubt.
Okulaja performed Where Is The Love by the Black Eyed Peas with will.i.am and Grace performed Take That’s Rule The World with mentor Olly.
The voting was then frozen before the top two acts with the most votes were revealed as Grace and Craig.
They returned to each sing their potential winner’s single with Grace performing Dream Catch Me and Craig performing Come Waste My Time, an original song he had written.
The vote then closed for good as Blessing was announced as the winner.
Elsewhere in the final there was also a performance from the coaches, singing Sir Duke by Stevie Wonder, and a guest performance from last year’s winner Blessing.
