The “X Factor Australia” coaches have come under the line of fire as fans are currently criticizing them after the rock-themed episode last night.
It appeared that the coaches had a tiff and took to criticizing one another for the song choices that were made, since it didn’t fit the theme of the episode. Instead of rock songs being sung, most tracks were called out to be ballads or pop numbers, as reported by News.com.au.
It was only last week that Guy Sebastian was questioned about his song selection on Twitter by a former “X-Factor” contestant, Jimmy Davis. And it turns out he came under scrutiny once again, this time around from other coaches were objecting at the song choices made for a rock-themed episode.
According to The Sydney Morning Herald, the judge/ coach picked Temper Trap’s “Sweet Disposition” for Matt and Jess, while In Stereo sang “Demons” by Imagine Dragons.
Sebastian also criticized mentor Chris Isaak’s choice for going with Lenny Kravitz’s “It Ain’t Over ‘til It’s Over,” which was sung by Cyrus Villanueva.
Sebastian said, “I don’t know how anyone could look at that song for rock week … that was a really bad cover version.”
James Blunt also agreed to Sebastain’s opinion, he said, “I’m afraid to say, I think he’s (Sebastian’s right), it’s a soul-funk song, not a rock song.”
What is “X-Factor” without a little bit of drama, right? Naturally so, the tiff didn’t end there – Isaak went on shout the words, “Shut Up,” over and over again, being irked by the fact that he supported Sebastian’s opinion.
To add to this, Twitterverse did not remain quite and fans took to the social media platform to share their opinion about how most of the songs were picked from different genres and weren’t rock numbers at all.
Fans of the “X Factor Australia” can keep coming back for more updates on the show.
