The Voice 2018 winner confirmed

The winner of The Voice 2018 was crowned in this month’s final and here’s a recap of the results.

It was the live final of The Voice UK on April 7 as four contestants competed for victory.

And following the final result, Ruti Olajugbagbe was revealed as the winner of The Voice UK 2018.

Ruti was in the top two with Donel Mangena following the first round of live performances.

The Voice UK’s live final weekend kicked off with the remaining members of Team JHud, Team Will, Team Olly and Team Tom again performing to stay in the competition and be one step closer to winning a recording contract with Polydor Records.

In The Voice UK final for Team Tom was 18-year-old student Ruti Olajugbagbe from Essex while on Team Jennifer was Belle Voci, a duo made up of friends 26-year-old Sophie from Norwich and 25-year-old Emily from Mayfair.

Team Will’s finalist was 16-year-old student Donel Mangena from Southampton and on Team Olly was 27-year-old student Lauren Bannon from Weymouth.

All four performed twice in the first half of the show, performing both a duet with their mentor and a new solo cover.

After the performances, lines briefly opened via phone and the app for viewers to support their favourite.

Host Emma Willis then announced the top two finalists in no particular order as Donel and Ruti.

Therefore Team Olly’s Lauren and Team Jennifer’s Belle Voci bowed out of the competition in third and fourth places respectively.
