Causing a tiff: Joel Madden's predictions of the Top 4 singers to go through to The Voice Australia Grand Finals caused a heated argument between the mentors on Sunday night's Semi Finals
Joel caused the drama on-set after he gave his Top 4 prediction, leaving Delta's last remaining contestant, Lyndall Wennekes, off the list.
After Joe Moore from Team Madden took to the stage to perform Paolo Nutini's Last Request, Joel boasted 'I think you just secured yourself a spot in the Top 4'.
He then named Joe, Nathan Hawes, Liam Mahi and Ellie Drennan for the Grand Final.
'Hey, hey, hey excuse me': Delta Goodrem wasn't taking it lightly when Joel insinuated that her last remaining contestant, Lyndall Wennekes, didn't have what it takes to get to the grand final

'Do you really think...': Ricky Martin also got involved in the discussion jumping to Lyndall's defense
'Stop it!' Sonia tried to get the mentor's to stop bickering by joking it reminded her of The Real Housewives
'Hey, hey, hey excuse me,' Delta pipped up, adding: 'I am very proud to say Lyndall deserves a spot in the grand finale'
'She has the voice - ease up tiger,' Delta told him defensively.
'Guys, do you really think Lyndall doesn't deserve to be on that stage?' Ricky asked
'I think Lyndall peaked tonight - that was her best performance to date,' Joel explained, adding he was giving his pure opinion based on their voices.

The 19-year-old stunned in a floor-length cut out beaded white gown, with her hair in a half-bun.
Putting together her own arrangement for the paired back performance not only impressed her mentor Delta, but left Joel and Benji standing with their jaws dropped at the end of her performance.
'I'm ready for this too,' Joel said as he composed himself.
However it wasn't enough to get her through and the blonde beauty bid a teary farewell to the competition and her mentor.

Taking the moment for a proper farewell speech,the 31-year-old warned co-host Darren McMullen: 'I have a three part speech, so don't cut me off like Kanye did to Taylor Swift, OK Darren?'
'Thank you for believing an artist can be more than someone who plays guitar' Naomi told Ricky while holding back tears.
Singer and guitarist Nathan Hawes performed a paired back version of Higher Love, which was enough to get him through to the second performance of the night, where he performed Vance Joy's latest hit Fire And The Flood.

When Team Jessie's last remaining contestant took to the stage, the 16-year-old blew away all the judges.
Ricky Martin told Ellie Drennan: 'I'm gonna go home and play this song over and over and over'.
Performing for the first time in the competition with a guitar in hand, Ellie sang her own version of the Katy Perry song I Kissed A Girl, based on the popstar's acoustic version.
'You need to stay here,' Ricky told her.
