‘Shame on you Channel Seven’: ‘Unhappy’ viewers criticize The Voice Australia’s ‘cruel’ new format as battle rounds are ditched for ‘austerity measures’

The Voice Australia viewers have slammed the new spicy format of the singing competition.

Channel Seven has tweaked a tighter format, ditching the show’s “cutbacks” battle rounds, forcing the coaches to shorten their teams to just two.

Many longtime fans of the reality singing show have criticized the format, claiming it “don’t give the public time to invest in the performers.”

“I don’t understand this new format. Is it just to be cheeky? Coaches want to see more confidence, emotion, confidence etc, but this format rushes all that and doesn’t give the singers a chance to get there. I bet a lot of viewers are unhappy #TheVoiceAU,” one person tweeted.

Another said: ‘The blind auditions gave me so much hope for #TheVoiceAU 2021 but the format has ruined everything that was set up and that’s just sad. Shame on you Channel 7, shame on you!’

#TheVoiceAU why did the blinds go on for ages but this part feels rushed? This format is a bit sh*t. I’d rather hear them sing more and send one home every episode,” a third person agrees.

One person wrote: ‘The new knockout format on #TheVoiceAU is awful…so far it’s been great. Just too predictable now.’

‘Don’t like this new format. Missing the fights and cutting so many people off so quickly doesn’t give people the opportunity to work well with their coach and develop,” said another.

‘Who agreed to this format!! This year’s talent is far too good to have so many cuts #TheVoiceAU,” agreed another.

Guy Sebastian and Keith Urban had to remove three members from their teams on Sunday night.

The coaches had three options after their team performed: to send them straight to the semifinals, send them straight home, or have them wait until the end of the night for their final decision.

Guy decided to take Bella Taylor-Smith and Jordan Fuller to the final, while Keith Arlo chose Sim and Lau Abend.
