Jessica Mauboy is Australia’s favourite daughter, so we’re very surprised to hear the criticism she received overnight. 

Jess hit the stage at the Mundine Vs Green boxing match in Adelaide on Friday night where she performed her greatest hits as well as the Australian national anthem.

Whilst you’d think the crowd would be in full support of the star, many match-goers were less than impressed. Members of the audience complained that the singer didn’t fit the demographic and should’ve ‘read her audience’.

Despite the majority of fans criticising her work, some fans did jump to her defence, sending her sweet messages online.
