THE Voice was slammed as "tone-deaf" for sending home the "best singers" in a bloodbath elimination.
HALF of the contestants were cut during Tuesday's episode of the singing competition show.
The top nine contestants were revealed on the latest episode of The Voice, which meant eighth aspiring performers were eliminated following their first live performances on Monday night.
A number of fans took to Twitter to slam the show and judges for the eliminations, as one person wrote: "I’m sorry, but are the people voting tone deaf?? Zania and Zae go home but the guy with the stupid mullet and the one tone goes through?"
A following fan added: "I don’t like this years decision for top 9 on #thevoice. If one team had the highest vote for all 4 then all 4 should stay!!"
A third chimed in: "This whole eliminate 2 after 1 live show SUCKS! ALL the AMAZING singers are going home. 1 shows NOT enough...I miss the old days on #TheVoice This new format is AWFUL! Riley&Anna R phenomenal. They shouldn’t even be in jeopardy. All the good music we are goin 2 miss."
