The Voice's Rita Ora blasts Keith Urban in heated moment: 'Dead to me'

Rita Ora was left fuming during the final round of blind auditions on The Voice Australia, after she was again blocked from pitching to a stand out performer.

Sydneysider Chantel Cofie, 23, blew all fourth coaches away with her original song 2020, but while all four stars had turned their chairs, someone had snuffed Rita's chances with a sneaky 'Block'. And she was not happy.

"I’m p***ed," Rita said, clearly frustrated as she stood up and put her hands on her hips.

"In the words of Boy George last season, you’re dead to me," she added.


Guy Sebastian quickly played innocent, saying: "Whoa, they’re strong words. Who did the block?"

That's when Rita turned to Keith Urban - who was already grinning.

"It was you wasn’t it? You blocked me didn’t you?" she asked.

"I knew it! You blocked me!"

While she admitted she was "angry", Rita told Chantel "that doesn’t dispute that that was one of the best auditions I’ve ever seen".

It's the second time Keith had blocked Rita during the blind auditions, after she had 'accidentally' did it to him during the earlier rounds.

Fans on Twitter were quick to call out Keith's 'nice guy act.

"Dang Mr Nice Guy strikes again," one person said.

"Poor Rita," was another comment.

"Keith blocked her again!" another fan called out, while one viewer said: "My 9-year-old son: 'uh-oh Rita Ora put her hands on her hips. I think she very angry right now'."

Despite the move, Chantel ended up deciding to go with Guy Sebastian.
