‘I love you always Bapa, rest heavenly with Mama,’ wrote Saraya. 

The sad news comes just days after Sunday night’s grand finale of The Voice.

The episode, which saw the finalists duet with their celebrity coaches, had fans seeing red after Jessica’s performance.

Singing Goanna’s 1982 hit Solid Rock with Mick Harrington, some viewers felt Jess ‘virtually shut’ Mick out of the song and robbed him of his opportunity.

‘Shouldn’t these duets be showcasing the contestants and not the “coach” singing like 90 per cent?’ one fan tweeted.

‘Too bad Jess sung over the top and virtually shut him out of the song,’ added another.

A third agreed: ‘Why does Jess always need to make the choices be about her? This is about the contestant and not about you!’
