In this paper, we investigated the finite-time synchronization (FTS) problem for a class of time-delayed complex networks with nonidentical nodes onto any uniformly smooth state. By employing the finite-time stability theorem and designing two types of novel controllers, we obtained some simple sufficient conditions for the FTS of addressed complex networks. Furthermore, we also analyzed the effects of control variables on synchronization performance. Finally, we showed the effectiveness and feasibility of our methods by giving two numerical examples.
