IN APRIL came reports that Delta Goodrem had fallen for one of her male colleagues on The Voice the program's star coaches Seal and even the married Joel Madden initially linked to the songbird.
On Wednesday night, two nights after wrapping the first season of Channel Nine's phenomenally successful talent show, the diva finally let her guard down at Lady Gaga's Sydney concert and revealed the new man in her life to be The Voice frontman Darren McMullen.

Eyewitnesses at Gaga's Sydney show say the lovebirds spent the night exchanging kisses and holding hands for all to see, clearly distracted by each other as they soaked up the euphoric concert atmosphere.
A concert insider yesterday confirmed Goodrem and McMullen attended the show with a group of friends including Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman, who was celebrating her 45th birthday with a night out at Acer Arena.
Sources say Goodrem and McMullen have been together for "some months'' after sparks started flying on the set of The Voice earlier in the year.
The romance follows a friendship spanning six years with the pair initially introduced while Goodrem was still with longtime beau Brian McFadden.
But with Sony bosses unwilling to endorse the lovematch between Goodrem and the LA-based McMullen, who once admitted pashing a "grotty'' Pamela Anderson, reps for both parties have been refusing to confirm the relationship.

"They are really into each other and are a pretty good match,'' said one music industry source.
Goodrem, 27, was last romantically linked to US country singer Nick Jonas, with whom she split in February.
McMullen, 30, has a reputation for being a serial flirt and once bragged he "charmed the pants off'' Hollywood actress Kate Hudson in 2006, two weeks before her divorce.
Like Goodrem, who was engaged to McFadden, McMullen has also recently mended a broken heart after his Sydney model fiancee Rechelle Lee broke off their engagement last year.
