‘The Voice’ Judges Choose the First Trio in a Historical Audition, but Fans Think It’s ‘Unfair’
For fifteen seasons, Musical Talent show, The Voice has wowed fans and also stirred up some fantastic moments. The show, currently in its 16th season, caused a significant uproar on social media as many fans reacted negatively to the choice of Judges.
The latest news about the show emanated from the second round blind auditions which aired on NBC. Tuesday’s episode saw a very remarkable performance from Katey Bundy.
Her performance was so lovely that Blake Shelton and Kelly Clarkson turned their chairs at the same time in appreciation and acceptance of Katey. They were however met with a huge surprise. There were three Kateys.
The singer was accompanied by two of her siblings, Megan and Ryan, making them a group of three, which they called The Bundys.
The Bundys who are from Wyoming, Ohio made history on the show. Katey began with the opening lines of Indigo Girls “Closer to Fine,” and her voice blended with those of her siblings. This surprised judges Shelton and Kelly, who did not expect to see three individuals.
When Adam Levine finally turned around to see them, he was not only astonished; he wondered if it was allowed in the show. Kelly Clarkson and Blake Shelton then battled to claim the trio for their teams with Clarkson getting the nod to coach.
The Voice’s first-ever trio. Some fans of the show were however left unhappy with the decision to allow the sisters to compete on the show, saying it was unfair to have other single contestants competing against three. Many disgruntled fans took to Twitter to air their feelings. The Bundys may not care about all that, as their talent was there for all to see and their performance very captivating.
Each new season of the show inevitably brings up new things. With the introduction of the Blind Auditions, this season also comes with new judges; Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkson, John Legend and Adam Levine. The anchors are going to have their hands full, and it will be interesting to see which of them wins at the end of the show.
It was also announced that the judges would have helping hands, as they are allowed to enlist a friend to assist them during the battle rounds. Blake chose country duo Brooks & Dunn to aid his cause, while Clarkson recruited Kelsea Ballerini.
Adam Levine who recently revealed his favorite contestant from all 16 seasons will be supported by Charlie Puth, while John Legend has chosen with Khalid.
