The Voice Australia is set to have one of most controversial auditions in the history of the show, on Sunday night.
News.com.au reports that 28-year-old Sam from Perth is set to perform for the coaches, impressing them so much they all beg for him to be on their team.
However, fans will be in for a shock at the performance, with some no doubt set to question if he should even be allowed on the show.
Is this The Voice’s most controversial audition ever? Coaches are left BEGGING 28-year-old Sam from Perth (pictured) to join their team…but should he even be allowed on the show?
According to the publication, Sam has ‘other tricks up his sleeve’ other than his voice.
Coach Boy George told the publication that Sam is a ‘loop artist’ – where a piece of music is recorded and played back in real-time.
‘He’s a ‘red sock in a white wash’ for me. I thought he was a DJ but he’s a ‘loop artist’ which is very new territory for The Voice,’ Boy George told the publication.

Kelly Rowland added: ‘Some are going to think that it’s not fair.’
Delta Goodrem added: ‘I think it will become more divisive as the audience will start to feel strongly toward individual artists.’
In a preview clip for Sam’s audition, the judges are all seen fighting for him to join their team.
‘You changed the game,’ new judge Joe Jonas says.

Kelly added: ‘You just changed the entire game with this, you realise that right?’
‘I’m to coach that’s going to make you do you. I just want you to do you. That’s what made the whole room shift energy and made it a swirl of too much,’ she said, trying to persuade him to join her team.
When Boy George said it was a ‘club thing,’ Kelly hit back, saying: ‘I do everything from dance music to RNB. I’ve done all the hip hop you love honey, I’ve collaborated with every hip hopper you can think of.’
News.com.au reports the one judge isn’t too happy that they get turned down to mentor Sam, and soon ‘suggests he shouldn’t be in the competition.’
Meanwhile another audition set to air this week is that of Liv, 19, who is cricketer Michael Bevan’s daughter.

Liv said she wanted to apply for the show to chase her dream, and to carve her own success outside of her famous family.
In an interview with Nine Honey on Wednesday, Liv said: ‘I love performing because it’s just mine; it’s my thing and it makes me feel really good about myself.’
Michael, a former Australian cricketer, and ex-wife Tracy signed Liv up for singing lessons at the age of seven during their 21-years of marriage.
Since then, her passion for the stage has only grown, igniting a dream of pursuing a singing career.
Liv told the publication she was hopeful of landing a spot on Joe Jonas’ team.
‘Joe probably knows a lot about how to break away from your family’s success and be successful on your own… because he has been,’ she said.
