Voices in to­tal har­mony

Co- stars mak­ing out

Townsville Bulletin - - LIFESTYLE - TIF­FANY DUNK

THE pro­mos have said it all – the fe­male coaches are at war on the set of The Voice Aus­tralia. Or are they?

Ac­cord­ing to view­ers, and the coaches them­selves, it’s sim­ply a tired but long­stand­ing trend of pit­ting women against each other in the name of a story.

“I’m so a be­liever in girls sup­port­ing girls,” fired back Delta Goodrem ( right), query­ing why no­body asks Ricky Martin and the Mad­den broth­ers if they don’t like each other.

“That doesn’t have to mean we can’t have opin­ions. That doesn’t mean that I can’t stand true to what I stand for and Jessie can’t stand true to what she stands for. And the Mad­dens, and Ricky equally. It doesn’t mat­ter what gen­der we are.” In fact, added Jessie J ( left), the two women ac­tu­ally agree on most things far more than she does with her male coach coun­ter­parts.

“But peo­ple hold on to the dis­agree­ments, be­cause that’s what it is,” she said.

Mean­while view­ers have been mak­ing their dis­plea­sure of the fe­male cat­fight­ing clear, with many stat­ing they be­lieve it’s a mar­ket­ing ploy.

When we met with the two coaches dur­ing film­ing of the bat­tle rounds, there was no in­di­ca­tion of ten­sion be­tween them.

In fact, they were quick to share their “wed­ding” snaps they’ve been tak­ing to doc­u­ment their new friend­ship.

“Ev­ery time I’m wear­ing white, Delta’s wear­ing black and vice versa, it’s re­ally hi­lar­i­ous, so we take wed­ding photos,” said Jessie J.

“We hadn’t met be­fore ( the show) but this is where our love story be­gan.”

And that love story ex­tends far be­yond the show’s set, ac­cord­ing to the duo.

“When we walk off the field I’m go­ing to have Jessie’s back and she’s got my back – full stop,” said Delta.
