I think some of Chris' votes would've definitely shifted to Jesse, but the split would've been so much that whoever was actually second place could've ended up winning.

I wonder if they’ll release the finalist placements eventually

Unfortunately I don't think they'll do it - if they were going to release the placings it would've been done on the night or the next day. I think the most we'll ever know about it is that there was less then 0.5% difference between 1st and 2nd place

For the U.S. version this season we didn't find out about the 2nd/3rd place until like a week after.

I think for us in Aus it's more of an 'out of sight, out of mind' thing. For all the controversy and backlash Chris got earlier this week, I think most people in Australia have already forgotten about it and moved on. 

 

Unless Channel 9 want to create more 'drama' in order to stay relevant, I don't think they're planning on releasing results this week.

Maybe because you wanted to forget about it.

I can't believe Chris won lmao, I checked out mentally from The Voice Aus after that, has there ever been a more underwhelming winner?

Haha that's true - people were joking that this is the longest we've remembered a Voice winner, purely because of the controversy surrounding a coach's brother winning the show.

 

I read somewhere that the 'loophole' is that All-Stars don't have to go through the application process (which clearly states you can't be related to any employees, etc.) as they get asked back, which is why Chris was able to compete this season. Also interesting is that Chris was apparently asked to come back last year, but Guy wanted to 'settle' in to the show seeing as it was his first year as a coach.

According to this person who knows someone working for The Voice, apparently it all 'came down to a handful of votes in the last few minutes' - poor Siala just missed out.

 

That's a bit of a surprise to me .... judging by everyone's comments on social media, Johnny seemed to get quite a lot of support (many said 'Johnny was robbed' on Instagram post announcing the winner). It seems his support didn't translate to votes though...

Do we know the placements for sure?

He’s not Australian and that may have played a part.

Unfortunately not, and I don't think they'll tell us either - I think we can gather from what that person has said that the places would've been:

1. Chris        2. Siala         3. Johnny            4. Stellar

I never thought about how that could affect votes!!! You could be right - of course, social media only captures a small picture of what the audience likes. Seeing as The Voice tends to have an older audience, many wouldn't be on Instagram/Twitter that are voting. I know when I played the performances to my mum she thought it was strange that an American was competing on The Voice Australia
