Tension had been simmering between the two judges ever since the fourth series launched at the end of June.
‘Australia’s sweetheart’ Delta Goodrem has stormed off the set of the country’s version of reality singing show ‘The Voice’, after becoming frustrated and angry with her fellow judge Jessie J’s criticisms of the program’s contestants.
Goodrem, 30, was incensed with British pop star Jessie’s negative comments about contestant Tamara Callaghan and her performance of Marilyn Monroe’s song ‘Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend’. Jessie was giving her some tips on how she should have sung it, when Goodrem ripped off her microphone and earpiece and walked off the set, being heard to say “I’m over this s***, I give up.”

The singer has had to cancel shows after undergoing surgery earlier in the week.

The 'Who's Laughing Now' singer underwent surgery earlier this week, the nature of which has not been divulged, and posted a bedside recovery photo on social media.
British pop star Jessie J is taking some off to recuperate after having surgery for an undisclosed illness, after sharing a video of herself on social media lying in bed in hospital afterwards.
The 27 year old singer posted a short video on Instagram on Tuesday (June 23rd), a before and after shot of the operation. “I don't often share personal stuff (especially about my health) any more, I just get on with it,” she wrote. “But I wanted to share with you before someone else might and it gets twisted and exaggerated into something different or worse.”

After the success of the first 'Pitch Perfect' and, more specifically, the 'Cup' song, the soundtrack for the sequel has a lot to live up to. However, there is a thing as trying to be too clever and here is a perfect example.
By trying to cram even more songs into each a cappella mash-up, some tracks just don't work without the visual aid of the movie and it becomes a race to recognize just what has been used. Two/three lines and it is on to the next song. 'Riff Off' starts off enjoyable, with a cover of 'Thong Song', but then goes through a circle of booty-complimenting tracks at a dizzying speed where it confuses and loses itself. A better example of a mash-up would be The Barden Bella's 'World Championship Finale' as you can clearly hear each tune used throughout.
The song that leads the entire soundtrack - also the lead single - is Jessie J's 'Flashlight' written by Sam Smith and Sia. By far the most memorable, it is a highlight to the album and is what will keep people coming back to listen to it. An inspirational ballad, it is by far one of Jessie J's best singles, but as the success of Anna Kendrick and 'Cups' showed, a big star isn't always needed to get radio play time. There is also a surprise performance from Snoop Dogg and Anna Kendrick, which is a nice way to break up the a cappella sound of the album. The other original track is 'Crazy Youngsters' performed by Ester Dean, which adds a modern and more 'pop' sound to the soundtrack. These 3 tracks are undeniably stand-out numbers in an otherwise very predictable album.
