There was controversy on "The Voice" Tuesday night after Adam Levine basically turned his back on one of his own team members to lobby for another WHO COULDN'T EVEN SING! and fans are pissed!
So the show is called "The Voice" and the "rules" are that the bottom three contestants must each perform again during the results show to try and earn the "Instant Save" vote of the night. The best performer get's saved. Now the problem is that one of those contestants, was too sick to perform.
Team Adam's Reagan Strange was "under the weather," but Team Blake's Dave Fenley was able to perform again, alongside another of Adam's contestants, DeAndre. After those performances is when Adam pissed off fans so much it was a top trending topic on Twitter. That's because the show made the unusual decision of still making Reagan available for saving, even though she didn't perform.
They didn't even replay her performance from the night before. There was no "Voice" from Regan. After the guys performed, Blake Shelton went on banging hard for his guy. Then Adam, who had the job of going hard for both of his contestants even if only one could be saved, basically ignored DeAndre to lobby for Reagan.
"There is an unbelievably talented little girl right now who is not able to fight for her position on this show," he said as DeAndre stood awkwardly on the stage in front of him. "I have two little girls at home. The thought of breaking [Reagan's] heart by not urging everyone to give this girl a shot to redeem herself next week would be too far beneath me."
He continued, speaking to DeAndre directly, "I want you to know I love you. I appreciate what you did here tonight. Honestly, I think you should both be there. But I've got tonight for my girl. I have to fight for her properly, because she didn't have a voice to fight tonight. That's all I can say. It's weird."
Kelly Clarkson even felt uncomfortable from the shade and decided she had to jump in after Adam basically said nothing about DeAndre, trying to defend her fellow coach while propping up DeAndre's spirits.
"I know Adam loves his team. He feels really bad for Reagan. DeAndre, you just sang the hell out of that song," she said. "I just wanted to say I know it's so horrible that Reagan is not able to present herself. That's where it's coming from. He's bummed for her."
Twitter fans went in on Adam. As they saw it, Adam was totally throwing DeAndre under the bus in favor of Reagan. Admittedly, she probably has the better chance at winning if her performance on Apple streaming is any indication (number one for the past two weeks). Meanwhile, DeAndre was in the bottom for the second week in a row.
In the end, Regan edged DeAndre out by one percentage point, 38 to 37, to score the save. Fans were so outraged, that #VoiceSaveDeAndre spent the evening trending way higher than #VoiceSaveReagan, with her # falling out of the Top 10.
