Melbourne teen Harrison Craig has won hearts across Australia with his humble attitude, boy-next-door looks, and of course, that Michael Bublé voice.


It's no surprise that he's the hot favourite to win The Voice 2013 on Monday night's grand finale. TheFIX talked to the 18-year-old about how he's changed from that nervous boy with the stutter to a soon-to-be global singing sensation.


"I think I've become more of a balanced person and more aware of who I am and who I want to be," Harrison told TheFIX.


"I've got more ideas and more aspirations for my life now that I really want to achieve. The whole Voice journey, it kind of makes you reevaluate a few particular things like the person you thought you were or the type of music you want to do. It makes you really mature in quiet a few ways."


Harrison credits coach Seal for steering his success in the competition.


"Seal has always taught me to never second-guess myself and trust my instincts. That piece of advice has served me quite well and I think Seal has seen that I can do it," Harrison said.


Seal's support goes back to the Blind Auditions, when all four coaches turned around upon hearing Harrison's rendition of Josh Groban's 'Broken Vow'.


"The most prominent memory is the one is when I chose Seal as my Coach in The Blinds and he ran up and gave me a bear hug and lifted my hand, it was pretty awesome," he said.


"But I think my favourite memory was seeing Seal standing up during both of my performances at the Semi-Finals. I don't know if he was nervous or anticipating things but it was so nice to see him care so much."


Regardless of the outcome of Monday night, Harrison has music firmly imprinted in his future.


"A year from now, if everything goes my way, I'd be writing music all over the world, and seeing what comes of that," he said.


"Also doing a tour and recording an album or two. It'll just be fun!"


Well, you'd better get cracking, young man.
