Andrea Begley wins The Voice - the right winner?

Andrea Begley The Voice winner

Northern Irish singer Andrea Begley has won The Voice 2013.

The partially-sighted 27-year-old from Pomeroy, County Tyrone sang My Immortal by Evanescence, before performing Hall Of Fame with The Script.

Angel by Sarah McLachlan was her chosen song for the final round.

Leah McFall had been the favourite but her renditions of Loving You and and I Will Always Love You didn't get enough votes to win.

The other finalists were Birmingham singer Matt Henry, who was knocked out first, and Mike Ward from Salford.

Did the right person win?

Leah's coach Will.i.am gave his shocked reaction to Andrea's win, tweeting:

"Andrea is amazing...#dontGETmeWRONG...but we know who has the incredible #voice"

"You should feel the audience's vibration in the room tonight after the public vote...it's #unexplainable...so sad...#perplexed"

But on Sunday morning he said: "Congratulations to Andrea for winning."

So who did you think should have won The Voice 2013 and why?

Your comments

"I think it's good that Andrea won because Leah will still become a big star without winning the Voice. I'm sure the recording companies will all be fighting over her!"

Bethan, Colchester, England

"It should have been Leah and Andrea who won."

Richard, Hereford, England

"I love Andrea's voice and she's incredible for being 90% blind. But I think Leah's voice was more edgy. I couldn't choose the winner between them both though, but I'm happy for Andrea because she will have that extra bit confidence in her heart."

Chloe, South Shields, England

"I think Leah should have won because she had an amazing voice."

Kate, Plymouth, England

"I voted for Leah because she has a really powerful voice!"

Petra, Blackpool, England

"I think Leah should have won since her voice was the best out of all the finalists."

Rachel, Wakefield England

"I think Andrea deserved it. I voted for her because i thought she was really good!"

Ellie, Hertfordshire, England

"I think Mike because I got a bit bored of the 2 girls and I think it was the sympathy vote for Andrea."

Scarlett, England

"I think Andrea should have won because she had a really good voice and Leah is already a star with her voice."

Chloe, Halifax, England

Hannah, Stoke-on-Trent, England

"I think all four finalists had very good voices. But I agree with Will.i.am. Leah had the best voice and everyone thought she would win. But it just shows that even if you think they're going win and don't vote, other people will. And the person they vote for is the one they think will get the least votes so they actually win. "
