While The Voice has already had its fair share of 'controversial' moments this season, fans were particularly outraged over one contestant’s performance on Tuesday night.

Angus Milne, who was one of this season’s final singers in the blind auditions, performed an original song that left viewers “flabbergasted”.

Shortly after the 35-year-old failed to turn a coach’s chair with his performance of Castle On The Hill by Ed Sheeran as they couldn’t work out who he was as an artist, he was quickly prodded by his wife off-stage to play a song of his own.

Angus then chose to sing what he called a “kids song”, which included the lyrics: “If it's a jungle and I'm a tiger, looking for p***y and I need to find her.”

The coaches were clearly taken aback, with Keith Urban asking “how long is this song?” and Rita Ora exclaiming “I can’t watch this”.

Meanwhile, Jess Mauboy started singing along to the catchy chorus of “don’t throw your coconuts at me”.

At the end of the performance, Angus pointed to his wife and said “I know she didn’t want me to sing that one”.

A number of viewers took to Twitter to share their opinion on the innuendo-filled song, with one person simply writing, “what the?”.

“Cringe, please stop,” someone else commented, with another adding, “that was bloody awful”.

“Is he really singing about p***y?” a fourth asked, while a different user quipped, “I think they’re regretting getting old mate to do an original now.”

Others expressed outrage over the song being performed on the Channel Seven series.

“I thought this was a PG show,” one user tweeted, followed by another: “‘Looking for p***y’, did I actually hear that right on a family show?”

“Wow just wow. I can’t believe this,” a third remarked. “We are having some family time in lockdown watching The Voice and low and behold my 8 and 12-year-old sons are subject to such profanity? The word p***y? I’m flabbergasted.”

Meanwhile, some people simply said they enjoyed the entertainment and found Angus to be “hilarious”.
