Johnny Rollins tipped to win tonight's The Voice grand final

DRUMMER turned singer Johnny Rollins is expected to win The Voice tonight.

SportsBet has the 29-year-old at 1.5 odds to take out the show's third season title over fellow finalists Anja Nissen, Jackson Thomas, Frank Lakoudis and duo ZK.

Rollins' rendition of Percy Sledge's When A Man Loves A Woman is the highest charting performance from last week's semi-final and is currently sitting at No 34 on the iTunes Australian singles chart.


Digital downloads play a pivotal role in the show's outcome, which each iTunes purchase counting as two votes.

Minogue has been championing her charge on social media, including her more than two million Twitter followers.

Rollins has been a quiet achiever on the show, surviving the battle and showdown rounds before rising to prominence in the live shows.

The accomplished percussionist has sung from behind the drum kit several times the show and has previously toured with his band Carter Rollins.

Will.i.am has two acts in tonight's grand final after viewers voted Nissen as the fifth wildcard entrant. She is the second favourite to win on 4.5 odds, while Will's duo ZK are the dark horses of the competition.

Coaches Ricky Martin and Joel Madden, the only coach to feature in all three seasons of the reality singing show, are both believed to be unlikely to win with their finalists Jackson Thomas and Frank Lakoudis.

The Voice grand final airs tonight at 7.30pm on Channel 9/WIN.
