The Voice Host Darren McMullen Slams Contestant Peta Jeffress

2 years ago

The Voice host Darren McMullen has laid into former contestant Peta Jeffress, calling her "rude" and a "primadonna"!

Darren appeared on Mornings to discuss the popular show, and he spoke about an incident where Peta snubbed her coach Delta Goodrem during an interview on Today Tonight.

"This is a woman ... who behind the scenes was ... rude to staff, rude to crew, didn't listen to anything [mentor] Darren [Hayes] and Delta had to say," Darren said.

"She was a primadonna, she knew better than everyone, she wasn't happy with the way the song was arranged, this that and the other."

Peta was eliminated in the battle rounds, after singing Purple Rain with Viktoria Bolonina. And Darren hated her performance.

"[Peta] came out and absolutely killed one of my favourite Prince songs of all time," Darren said.
"It was hard to listen to when she was singing and screeching down the mike."

And Darren had a final message for Peta, who lost a record deal when she was fifteen.

"This industry is about attitude right?" he said.

"That's a perfect example of why you don't deserve to be on the show and why you'll never make it, because your attitude stinks."

Check out what Peta had to say about Delta in the original Today Tonight interview below. Sounds like she wasn't too happy about working with Delta!
