Kyle Sandilands' X-rated joke shocks fellow Aus Idol judges: 'Oh my God'
The radio host is known to make racy comments.
Australian Idol judge Kyle Sandilands surprised his fellow panellists on Tuesday night when he made an X-rated joke about a contestant after finding out her song choice. The radio host was chatting with Ali Morris, who was auditioning for the show by singing 'Untouched' by The Veronicas.
"Is it because you are untouched?" Kyle joked, with the contestant cheekily responding, "I don't know if I can answer that."
Meghan Trainor quickly hit out at Kyle, saying, "Oh my God! This is a family show!"
Amy Shark appeared to find the gag a bit awkward, while Harry Connick Jr seemingly tried to ignore it altogether.
"A girl's gotta keep some secrets," Kyle joked, with Ali laughing and agreeing, saying, "Exactly!"
Before the audition, Ali, who is a published author, also gave the judges a copy of her book Outside.

After the audition, which didn't go so well, Kyle joked, "I think you should go 'outside'," as he held her book.
It comes after the judges were left stunned on Monday night by a contestant that wouldn't get the hint that they weren't a star singer.

Imogen Lendell sang Sam Smith's Lay Me Down, with the judges clearly unimpressed by her vocals.
"The vocal is not great at all. You must know that's pretty woeful. Not good," Kyle told her, to which she responded, saying that Kyle's thoughts were simply his "opinion" and begged to hear what the others thought.
"I'm going to be honest with you, singing is not for you. Making a living as a singer is not in your future," Harry said, agreeing with Kyle.
