Chris Sebastian has only had an hour and a half sleep.
Last night, following his win on The Voice Australia 2020, he says he "just laid awake with a smile on [his] face for about four hours".
"I found out when the rest of Australia found out, so I had to wait till that decision was actually aired on television before I knew," the 31-year-old laughs.
Sunday's The Voice grand finale was pre-recorded, meaning production had filmed each finalist being announced as the winner. The public vote then determined which ending was aired.
"It was awkward because we knew that if we did win, that that was going to be what was played. But because we weren't actually winning in that moment, obviously it was an acting thing. So there's that strangeness to it. But I think the real reaction came when I heard my name on TV," Chris explains to Mamamia.

Chris was with his brother, Voice coach Guy Sebastian, when they called his name.
"I can't even tell you the level of surprise," Chris says.
"My wife was literally holding our baby and she just started running around the house and then she passed our daughter to my sister-in-law and she was just weeping... It was a beautiful moment," he says.
