1. Delta Goodrem’s accidentally racist moment.
Music industry veteran, Steve Clisby earned a place on Team Seal with his rendition of ‘Can’t Get Enough Of Your Love’ by Barry White last night but it was not without controversy.
Delta was the first judge to speak to the contestant calling him “one cool cat,” she then said, “you have such an amazing voice”.
To which Clisby replied, “but you didn’t turn around,” a clearly flustered Goodrem then attempted to recover by saying, “I genuinely was… kinda feeling…. like Seal’s brother”.
Seal and Clisby were both visibly dumbfounded by her comments and Seal retorted with “Oh. We’re both black, so he’s coming on my team.”
Goodrem then tried to explain, “I meant as in the soul thing, I didn’t mean anything else.” It all ended well with Seal hugging Goodrem and Clisby laughing off the foot-in-mouth moment. You can watch the clip here.
Fans also took to Twitter to slam the show’s ending, in which the red chairs failed to turn around even though Ricky Martin and Joel Madden were madly pressing the buzzers.
