The Voice Australia blind auditions for 2021 have already been full of incredible performances and plenty of surprises. But one audition on Sunday night may have had the coaches floored, but left some viewers questioning whether it should even be allowed or not.
Girl band G-Nat!on from Adelaide - made up of Isla Ward, 17, Taylah Silvestri, 18, Emma Caporaso, 18, Mateja Sardelis, 16, Alessia Musolino, 17 and Rylee Vormelker, 17 - took to the stage with a lively performance that wowed the judges, but some viewers have called the audition 'unfair'.
All four coaches turned around for the ladies, and Rita Ora jumped up on-stage joking she wanted to become a member of the band.
"You guys are honestly so exciting for me, and I feel like this is the beginning of my life. I feel so excited I can't even speak," she said.
"I swear to you, if you come with me I promise I will take you all the way. You guys have it, and I see it. The whole thing from the style to the sass, to the swag. I will help you navigate this ship that you are on - and it's not going to sink on Team Rita."
While the coaches were clearly excited some viewers didn't understand why a group was allowed to audition in the first place.
"How do you compare one voice with a group who can sing harmonies & create a different stage presence?" one person asked on Twitter.
"The voice or the voices? Needs to be a seperate category for groups," another person said.
While a third said: "Groups shouldn't be allowed to compete."
"They're so good but I definitely think there should be another competition with groups!!" another agreed.
However, some fans defended the performance saying they were excited to see a girl band perform.
"WOW!! I am seriously impressed with these girls G-NAT!ON is the nation to be in," one fan wrote.
"The world's ready for a new girl group and I think AUS just found them," was another excited comment.
The group ended up going with Team Rita.

It comes after Guy Sebastian revealed the coaches do in fact get some hints from The Voice producers during the show.
Speaking to Yahoo Lifestyle recently all about his third time appearing on the hit reality series he revealed some major behind-the-scenes secrets as a coach.
The Aussie superstar confessed that each notebook holds a variety of information for the coaches, including facts about the contestants and the songs they perform during the blind auditions.
“It’ll sort of just say like, what state they're from. There's no names, no gender or anything like that,” he said. “We never get told anything about who they are, we don’t get told the song.
“But if it’s a really random song, like one that’s some B-side Whitesnake or Radiohead or something that not everyone knows, we get told that so that we don’t think it’s an original.”
The Voice continues 7.30pm Monday and Tuesday on Channel 7 and 7plus.
