During a live performance of the soul star’s new charity single, Golden, fans of the ITV Daytime show took to X, formerly known as Twitter to vent their displeasure.
Unimpressed viewers branded the singer ‘off-key, coarse and loud’ as they accused her of ‘shouting’ her way through the track.
Joss, 36, was backed by the Change + Check choir, with whom she has joined forced to raise funds and awareness for breast cancer.
Many fans of Lorraine suggested that the all-female choir should have performed without the famous singer, noting their ‘lovely soft tone’.
Yikes! Lorraine viewers begged Joss Stone, 36, to stop singing, on Friday
Oh dear: During a live performance of the soul star’s new charity single Golden, viewers branded the singer ‘off-key, coarse and loud’
Charity single: Joss was backed by the Change + Check choir, with whom she has joined forced to raise funds and awareness for breast cancer
Taking to social media, one viewer wrote: ‘For a professional singer there was loads of bits of that song where Joss Stone was just plainly off-key #lorraine.’
‘My ears make it stop i am sorry I’m all up for charity songs but sadly @JossStone just killed that one! should have just been the choir singing they struggled to be heard #lorraine,’ insisted another.
Someone else tweeted: ‘I think Joss Stone ruined that song. The choir had a lovely soft tone and Joss Stone was coarse and loud. Surely the choir should be the centre of attention-shame. #Lorraine.’
‘Im sorry, great cause but that was like getting f**ked in the ear by a swarm of wasps #Lorraine,’ fumed one fan of the show while another added: ‘Damn that was alot of shouting #Lorraine.’
As part of the fifth year of the trailblazing breast cancer awareness campaign Change + Check, the charity single is led by 20 women who found their breast cancer after seeing the campaign on the show.
The single is also dedicated to Hannah Hawkins, 33, a producer for Lorraine who recently passed away from secondary breast cancer.
Hopes are to get Golden to the top of the charts, while further encouraging more people to check their breasts.
Joss shared: ‘It’s a wonderful song. It means a lot to me, to all of us. Especially my cousin Jo, who has gone through breast cancer and she’s here today. She’s been the most inspiring person I know.’
Eek! Unimpressed viewers accused Joss of ‘shouting’ her way through the track
Lorraine producer Helen Addis also said: ‘It’s a real pinch-me moment and I cannot believe I’m sat on the sofa with this one [Joss]!
‘What is so powerful and so golden about it this year is that we’re doing it in memory of our dear, darling producer Hannah Hawkins. She lost her life a week ago today to secondary breast cancer.
‘She was a dear friend of ours. We all love her and we’re going to miss her very, very much but we want to dedicate this to her, to Rory her little baby who’s barely nine weeks old and to her husband Tom.
‘He actually posted this morning that this was the last song that the three of them listened to.’
The campaign which raises awareness of the signs and symptoms of breast cancer was founded by Lorraine producer and breast cancer survivor Helen Addis.
Net profits from downloads of Golden will go going to breast cancer charity Future Dreams.
