The Voice

The Voice coach Delta Goodrem busted in “cheating” scandal

She’s pushing buttons in more ways than one!

By Erin Doyle
Competition is getting fierce on The Voice this year.
While all the coaches are hoping one of their team members will make it across the finish line to be crowned victorious in the finale, Delta Goodrem is proving she's not against bending the rules to get there.
When contestants Chriddy Black, Mitch Paulsen and Jesse Teinaki went head to head in the Knockouts, their mentor Guy Sebastian picked Mitch to take through.
But coaches have "saves" up their sleeves, which both Delta and Guy tried to use to "save" Chriddy, but Chriddy ultimately opted to stay on Team Guy.
But as host Sonia Kruger tried to bid goodbye to remaining singer Jesse, that's when Delta got a little cheeky.
Attempting to press her buzzer again, Delta cried out: "Wait, wait! I still have a save. What about if I save Jesse?"
The other coaches were left baffled and outraged.
"Hold on a minute, that's cheating!" Delta's rival Boy George pointed out.

Meanwhile, contestant Jesse was so confused he had no idea how to react.
"Is that a thing? Is that a real thing?" he asked.
"I'm just waiting for someone to come in and say no we can't do that, that's against the rules."
Even Guy was shocked, exclaiming, "These are the loosest Voice rules I've ever seen!"

But it looks like it was Jesse's lucky day and Delta was allowed to add the singer to her team.
A delighted Delta said: "Let me just say I really do think that none of you deserved to go home just then so Jesse I'm looking forward to coaching you on my team."
Others were not so happy, however.
"What a joke!" Boy George complained. "That was an outrage!"
Boy George admitted he was "outraged" that Delta was allowed to keep Jesse on her team. (Image: Channel Nine)
