"The Voice Australia" 2017 suffered a technical malfunction on Sunday night's episode when its official voting app crashed as fans cast their votes.

The show issued a statement via its official Twitter page. It explained what happened during the Instant Save portion on Sunday, June 11.

"Thanks for your patience during tonight's Instant Save," The Voice AU tweeted. "Here's what happened. Due to a technical issue, app voting opened slightly later than planned for tonight's Instant Save. We apologise for this issue and assure you that the outcome is an accurate reflection of Australia's choice and has been verified by our independent auditors."

Unfortunately, some viewers claim that the voting app glitch cost contestant Bojesse Pigram some important votes that could have saved him. Pigram ended up on the bottom two, along with Spencer Jones. The former sang "Sing" by Ed Sheeran in the Sing-off performances, while the latter sang Adele's "Skyfall." In the end, Jones received the Instant Save and Pigram was eliminated from the competition.

The nine other contestants that were saved by the public are: Hoseah Partsch, Claire Howell, Judah Kelly, Rennie Adams, Lucy Sugerman, Tim Conlon, Fasika Ayallew, Berni Harrison and Sarah Stone. Kelly delivered a powerful performance of "Chains" by Tina Arena, which was praised by judges Seal, Delta Goodrem and Kelly Rowland.

"Ya'll have to vote for him because I want to see him here. I want to be entertained every week." the former Destiny's Child member said.

Aside from Goodrem, Rowland and Seal, Boy George is also a coach of "The Voice Australia" 2017, which is hosted by Sonia Kruger. It airs every Sunday on the Nine Network. The next episode airs on June 18 and it will feature a double elimination. Check out some of the videos from last Sunday's controversial episode.
