The Voice sent home its first four singers, all of them male, from its live performance shows: Sam Ludeman and Michael Duchesne from Team Seal, and Matt Hetherington and Ben Bennett from Team Delta.
Some of the singers saved by the judges are likely to raise eyebrows.
Delta Goodrem saved her own backing singer Glenn Cunningham.
Seal saved Chris Sebastian despite a lacklustre performance last week.
Seal told his contestants, “Based on what I’ve been talking about, it’s about how you connect with that camera.”
So is it still just about the voice?
This week the show included more constructive criticism for singers, which was sorely needed, including for teen favourite Lakyn Heperi.
It was also the girls who had the edge over the boys with the best performances coming from Diana Rouvas, Brittany Cairns and Sarah de Bono. Darren Percival was the best of the blokes.
