Despite having a terrible time on The Voice back in 2012, Chris Sebastian is returning to the singing competition tonight and will take part in the latest season’s blind auditions.

Speaking with The Music back in 2016, the Aussie singer-songwriter said his stint on The Voice season one was “a crappy experience” and that he didn’t want to do the show in the first place.

“They did a lot of things that they weren't meant to, like after my performance they played my brother's song,” Sebastian said, speaking of his brother, Guy, who launched his career from singing competition Australian Idol in 2003 before going on to become a judge on The Voice.

“It was a real slap in the face, and when I asked them about that they were just like, almost smug about it, like they kinda [knew] it all along, it was just really rude... real dishonest.”

With Guy Sebastian now a judge on the show, the latest trailer for tonight’s episode unsurprisingly plays up that connection.

Meanwhile, as TV Tonight reports, the latest series of The Voice debuted to 1.01 million viewers on Sunday night, the exact same figure the 2019 season aired to.
