Christina Aguilera is catching some heat from viewers of The Voice for coming off as “mean” to contestant Melanie Martinez.
The Lotus singer and mentor on the hit singing competition show scolded Martinez for not paying attention during her critique following her performance of The Show” by Lenka.
Hollywoodlife reports that her mentor, Adam Levine, told her he was a fan of the youthfulness she brought to the performance, and Blake Shelton told her that it was “definitely different.” But Aguilera noticed that Martinez got a bit distracted, and decided to call her out on it.
“Well, she’s not even looking at me… It’s OK!” said Aguilera when giving her critique, followed by a laugh.
Some Twitter users have taken notice, and one wrote “Christina Aguilera was rude last night to Melanie….” Someone else posted “Why is Christina so mean toMelanie? Jealousy?”
Meanwhile, Aguilera has no contestants of her own anymore, as they’re all been eliminated.
“I'm very excited to be able to sit back and literally just be entertained at this point,” she said, The Daily Mail reports. “The hardest part of the job is done.”
