“The Voice” recently received an Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Reality-Competition Program, but not all fans had positive reactions after a judge, Adam Levine’s, exit from the show.
The long-running singing competition series “The Voice” is nominated for Outstanding Reality-Competition Program, which they recently shared on their Instagram account. While some fans congratulated the show, many were in disapproval.
“This is The Emmys,” captioned the post. “Congrats are in order!”
Fans took to the comment section their diverse reaction after hearing the news. Some complained about the awarding after “The Voice’s” pioneer judge, Adam Levine, left the show a few months back.
On the other hand, there were also a handful who commended the show for a job well-done and congratulated the program for the possible win. One comment read:
“Absolutely the only television show we watch, otherwise, the tv is off!!!”
Levine left the show in May but never fully disclosed the reason behind his exit. Despite him leaving the show, the judge had no bad blood with any of his colleagues and penned a goodbye message on Instagram.
“I am truly honored to have been a part of something I’ll always cherish for the rest of my life,” Levine wrote.
The reason behind the judge’s exit was thought to be the changes made in the rules of the contest specifically, the Live Cross Battles, which cost him to lose his team as finals came closer.
The 40-year-old Maroon 5 lead singer continued to thank the show, the host, and his fellow judges, especially Blake Shelton whom he considers his “brother.”
The other nominees under the category are CBS’ “The Amazing Race,” NBC’s “America Ninja Warrior,” Netflixes “Nailed It,” VH1’s “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” and Bravo’s “Top Chef.”
