THE VOICE Recap: Judith Hill + Sarah Simmons Cut! RIDICULOUS!
I was on-the-go so I wasn’t able to catch the elimination show last night. But I woke up to the crazy news that two of the BEST performers on the show were eliminated! Those two girls are clearly stars and honestly, they’ll be widely famous singers regardless. Take the American Idol ‘losers’ for example, most of them went on to be much bigger successes than the ‘winners’. Sometimes having that title attached to your name isn’t always good, “American Idol” or “The Voice”. I’m saying this as a Music Industry professional.
In addition to seeing how America got it wrong, I heard the news of my favorite Adam Levine being bashed for his response to the girls being cut. He made the remark, “I hate this country.” I saw the video footage, but I didn’t need to. I know from watching the show that he clearly meant it jokingly. I’m not saying this because I’m a fan of his, I’m saying it because it’s what I believe. I bet half of the people commenting don’t even watch the show and didn’t watch the actual footage to hear the sarcasm in his voice. Should he have been more aware of what he said? Yes. Was there malice behind it? No.
It’s a live show and they all tend to say things that I’m sure they wish they could take back. Are any of them as serious as Adam’s comment? No, but I truly believe that he does not hate this country. Come on people. Hell, if I was watching and saw how ‘America’ voted I probably would’ve made the comment and clearly, I don’t hate America; if I did I would move. Oh, save your negative comments, I’ll probably just reply sending you the freedom of speech.
Love is Love!
P.S. I wish all the contestants left the best of luck! I won’t be watching any longer however.
