K *arise Eden *continues to dominate the Australian music charts. After winning Nine's hit talent search The Voice on Monday night, 19-year-old Eden had four songs in the iTunes top five yesterday.

Her powerful rendition of Stay With Me Baby continued to sit at number one, while Hallelujah, I Was Your Girl and He Won't Let Me followed at two, three and four respectively.

In total, Eden, above, had eight songs in the top 15 and her cover of *Leonard Cohen *'s Hallelujah debuted at number two on the ARIA singles chart this week with close to 24,000 sales.

It has been reported that Eden's new record label Universal hopes her winner's single, You Won't Let Me, will sell more than 100,000 copies this week.

Yesterday Eden began to embark on a gruelling recording and promotional schedule that will see her record five new songs for her 13-track album, My Journey, which is released on Tuesday.

The new songs include Eden channelling her idol *Janis Joplin *with a version of Move Over.

Tomorrow Eden will be back in front of the cameras filming her debut music video for You Won't Let Me.

With her detailed history of agoraphobia and self-harm, time will tell how the intense pressure and media scrutiny will take its toll on the Central Coast teenager.

Her 12-day victory lap starts in Queensland on June 27 and will head to *Perth *on July 7, with an appearance at *Westfield Whitford City *at 3pm.

The ratings juggernaut fell well short of Nine 's predictions it would average 3.5 million viewers for Monday night's grand final - but it still easily won the ratings.

The Voice was credited with two shows on Monday night - the grand final and the winner's announcement - but neither got close to pulling 3.5 million viewers.

The winner's announcement attracted the biggest television audience on Monday with 3.098 million people (283,000 in Perth) tuning in to watch singer-songwriter Eden crowned "The Voice".

It was also The Voice's biggest audience for the series.

Nine's national director of sales and marketing *Peter Wiltshire *had earlier said The Voice had the potential to pull more than 3.5 million viewers.

"If that doesn't do 3.5 million viewers on Monday night then we have underdone it," Wiltshire told AAP last Friday.

The Voice contestants and coaches partied hard at the official wrap, which lasted into the early hours of yesterday. All those involved in the mega-hit show danced the night away at The Eastern Hotel's nightclub in Sydney.

V-room host *Faustina Agolley *, who turned her hand to deejaying at the after party, also posted a couple of photos from inside the star-studded bash on Instagram.

One photo shows *Seal *warmly embracing *Delta Goodrem *, still wearing the gold custom J'Aton dress she wore for the grand finale, on the dance floor.

After a hugely successful first series of The Voice, the search is already on for the singers that will make series two.

The second series will screen early next year, Nine announced earlier this month.

Whether coaches Seal, *Keith Urban *, Goodrem and *Joel Madden *all return has not been confirmed.

Eden urged producers to re-sign Seal yesterday.

"He has guided me through a lot personally," Eden said. "He has confronted me and I think he has helped me dramatically on both sides (personally and professionally).

"He taught me to value myself as an artist and I'm an artist - and not that little girl from Woy Woy - and to have confidence and know I am doing the right thing.

"It would be amazing to see that man sitting in his chair again."
