LONG before she relieved herself on a fan, singer Sophia Urista tried to be number one on The Voice.
The Brass Against lead singer, who is currently under fire for her bizarre on-stage stunt, auditioned for the reality show in 2016, and got the votes of two of the coaches.
For her audition, Sophia, 36, sang The Beatles classic Come Together, and after nearly a minute of belting out the tune, convinced judges Miley Cyrus and Alicia Keys to slam their buzzers.
Then the panel had their say.
Fellow judge Blake Shelton, who didn't buzz in, noted: "Your voice…it was intimidating to me, I'm not going to lie. Like, it was full of all that growl."
Blake and fellow season 11 coach Adam Levine both passed on Sophia, leaving Miley and Alicia to duke it out to become the singer's coach.
Alicia appealed to Sophia's feminine side: "I don't believe either (of the men), and I feel that's why we need to be together. So that we can continue to scare all the men in the world."
That declaration was met with applause from the audience, as Sophia flexed onstage and kissed her arm muscles.
Alicia went on to compare Sophia's voice to all-time greats Janis Joplin and Tina Turner combined into one body.
"To me, you are the future of music," she stated.
Next up, Miley made her case to become Sophia's coach.
The Wrecking Ball singer first complemented her performance: "People get up here and they sing, but they're not performing. You just jam like 'I've got this, this is my stage.'
"You sounded like a rock and roll Dolly Parton."
The comparison seemed to make an immediate impact on Sophia, who responded: "That's my girl."
Sophia would go on and choose Miley over Alicia as her personal coach. She would eventually make it to the playoffs, only to be eliminated in the first round.
Now, four years later, Sophia finds herself back in the spotlight for her controversial performance.
The frontwoman of Brass Against shocked crowds at the Welcome to Rockville festival in Daytona when she pulled down her pants and peed on a fan's face.
Urista was in the middle of performing a cover of Rage Against the Machine's Wake Up when a male fan was invited up on stage.
It's not clear if the fan knew exactly what he was being brought on stage for, but footage shows him lying on the ground with what looks like a can on his head as Urista unbuttons and pops a squat right over his face.
The disturbing stunt was captured on video by people who were just feet away watching it unfold in the crowd.
The man then got up and spewed up some of the urine in the direction of the audience.
The band has since taken to social media to apologize for the incident on Urista's behalf:"We had a great time in Daytona last night at Welcome to Rockville.
"Sophia got carried away. That's not something the rest of us expected, and it's not something you'll see again at our shows.
"Thanks for bringing it last night, Daytona."
According to her The Voice biography, Sophia comes from a conservative family and was a pre-med student before she pursued a career in music.
When she was 21 years old, she moved to New York with only $700 to her name and began her life as a performer.
Sophia has been engaged to Peloton instructor, Jess King, since 2020. The singer proposed to her longtime girlfriend after the premiere of the music video for the song she wrote about King, entitled Everything About You.
The couple are reportedly focused on family planning, with each of them allegedly wanting to eventually carry a child.
