Fans of "The Voice" have shown their displeasure at Kelly Clarkson's decision to send contestant, Taylar home.


Although Taylar Green gave the performance of a lifetime when she sang a rendition of Cyndi Lauper's "Time After Time" during "The Voice" knockout rounds, it wasn't enough to save her from being sent home by Kelly Clarkson.

The singer had, instead, chosen to keep Micah Iverson, who performed Hasley's "Graveyard" - a decision that many viewers have frowned at - in the competition.

While powers lie in the hands of viewers, the winner of the four-way Knockout will not be announced until May, and due to COVID-19 social distancing measures.


Soon after Kelly sent Taylar packing, a few people took to their social media platforms to express their shock and dismay as one person told the singer-songwriter "that was the worst decision you've ever made on the voice." 

Another user used a gif of Whitney Houston looking tired to express how Kelly's decision made her feel. A third person pointed out that something wasn't right as Taylar had gotten a standing ovation from Blake Shelton - which was a rare occurrence.


A fourth viewer mentioned how upsetting it was that Kelly let Taylar go even though the latter "killed it." The slams came at the same time that Daily Mail reported that Kelly used her last steal to take Cedrice from Blake's team.

According to the site, the 28-year-old musician from San Diego, looked forlorn after she lost to another contestant despite her powerful rendition of Rihanna's "Love On The Brain."


However, just as she was ready to leave the stage in resignation, 37-year-old Kelly pressed the buzzer, as she silently muttered, "love her!" As she bent down in gratitude, a tearful Cedrice playfully told the coaches, "you have to stop doing this to me!" 

While many hope that Kelly is the right coach for the musician, Hollywood Reporter noted that the Monday night episode ended with the four-way Knockout.

For the four-way battle, Team Legend's Nelson Cade III belted out "Best Part" by Daniel Caesar and Team Blake's Todd Michael Hall sang "Somebody to Love" by OneRepublic.

Additionally, Team Nick's Michael Williams sang "You Are the Reason" by Calum Scott while Team Kelly's Samantha Cowell performed "Always on My Mind" by Willie Nelson.

While powers lie in the hands of viewers, the winner of the four-way Knockout will not be announced until May, and due to COVID-19 social distancing measures, the show would take on a new virtual approach.
