The Voice Australia fans lashed out at the show for failing to mention that Jay Sierra WON The X Factor

The Voice fans denounced the show after Guy Sebastian pretended not to know contestant Jay Sierra – despite being a judge when he WINNING The X Factor with his boy band The Collective

Voice Australia fans put their hands up when they saw a familiar face audition for the show on Tuesday.

Sydney singer Jay Sierra, 27, discussed his time performing in the circus troupe Cirque du Soleil, but he made no mention of his talent show history – nor was anyone else on The Voice.

Jay, later known as Jayden Sierra, won The X Factor Australia in 2012 as a member of the boy band, The Collective.

Guy Sebastian, who was a mentor on The Voice, was also a judge on The X Factor at the time, and knew Jay well.

However there is no mention of his relationship, or previous contest success Jay, or having signed a record deal with Sony Music Australia in the past.

Jay has even had chart success – The debut single The Collective Surrender debuted at number six on the ARIA Singles Chart, and their first album debuted at number 11 on the ARIA Albums Chart, before they disbanded in 2015.

Mentors Guy, Keith Urban and Rita Ora all changed their seats for Jay.

Coach Jess Mauboy asked him ‘where have you been?’ as if Jay was a new face in the industry, while Guy referred to him as a ‘potential winner’ of The Voice – without admitting that they had met.

Jay chose Keith as his coach after the country singer used the ‘block’ option to stop Guy and Jay from working together.

Fans were confused by the whole thing, with many posting their thoughts to Twitter.

‘Wasn’t Guy a judge in the season he’s in? Ahaha the fact that they act like they’ve never met,” one person wrote.

‘So Jay is in The Collective but it’s not mentioned, it’s unfair that he’s also on the X Factor’ said another.

‘I love that they didn’t mention Guy was a judge the year Jay was on the X Factor’ someone else chimed in.

‘Way to ignore the fact that you’re in The Collective, Jay, the boyband that won The X Factor about a decade ago…’ another lamented.

‘Jay was on the X Factor and was in The Collective which formed on the show and signed a record deal. He shouldn’t be allowed on this show. Do season an ex-signed person if you want to allow this’ another added.

'Jay was on the X Factor and was in The Collective which formed on the show and signed a record deal.  He shouldn't be allowed on this show' complained one viewer
