Guy Sebastian has admitted that he “didn't handle it well” last night after a tense episode of The Voice.
Fellow coaches Kelly Rowland and Delta Goodrem ripped into Sebastian for treating a contestant “unfairly”.
The episode featured “The Battles” stage of the competition, where coaches put two of their team members against each other to sing the same song in front of the studio audience.
After the song, the coach picks their favourite and another judge has an opportunity to “save” the singer that would be eliminated. The coach can only use one of two saves per Battles stage.
Guy chose Bukhu Ganburged to take on fellow teammate Johnny Manuel, who is a fan favourite to win the competition.
Bukhu had a stunning “Blind Audition”, where his Mongolian throat singing allowed him to produce two or more notes at the same time stunned the coaches.
However, fans of the show questioned whether or not how far the throat singing would take Bukhu as he would have to sing other songs that had lyrics.
Guy chose Michael Jackson's Earth Song for the duo to perform, with Johnny singing the bulk of the lyrics and Bukhu providing a backing melody with his throat singing.
After the performance, Delta said Guy picked a song she felt was designed to let Johnny shine instead of both singers.
