The stage is set for an epic Grand Final showdown this coming Sunday after Melbourne songstress Tarryn Stokes won the final heat on All Together Now.
The primary school teacher dazzled the 100 judges tonight with a stirring rendition of Keala Settle’s This Is Me earning her a near-perfect 98 points.
The 100 Captain, Ronan Keating, was full of praise for the 35-year-old saying: “I don’t know what the other two [judges] were doing; I think they were asleep! That was incredible. This is what we’ve been waiting for!”
Sydney librarian Anton Aktila,39, booked himself into the sing off against Tarryn thanks to his smooth take on Bruno Mars’Versace On The Floor getting him 94 points.
In the biggest sing off this series, the pair fought it out for the last remaining spot in the Grand Final with Tarryn victorious 97 points to 78. Her version of Whitney Houston’s I Will Always Love You was too strong for Anton, who performed Sam Smith’sStay With Me.
Tarryn goes straight into next Sunday’s Grand Final alongside previous heat winners – Brisbane’s Lai Utovou, Mapoon’sRoyston Sagigi-Baira, Melbourne’s Jessica Boyd, Bex & Phil, trio Harmony In Three and Emma Mylott, all from Sydney. They will battle it out alongside the wildcard winner, whose identity will be revealed during the Grand Final.
