Even though The Voice has been praised for its positivity, it hasn't been without controversy. The biggest scandal was when the show asked Carmen Smith, one of Joel Madden's team members, to leave the show because she appeared in Guy Sebastian's music video for his new single "Gold." They believed her extra exposure would give her an unfair advantage over Joel's other contestants when it came to public vote.
Other comments have been in regards to whether Seal's affectionate ways with his charges have been appropriate, and whether Delta Goodrem was choosing her former back-up singer Glenn Cunningham over other singers. Delta also copped flak on social media.
