This week’s The Voice results show turned out to be pretty intense, but what was even MORE intense was the response from fans to what they saw play out on their TV screens.

Going into the episode, Coach Adam Levine had two contestants remaining on his team in the top 10: DeAndre Nico and Reagan Strange. But we had to lose two people this week, meaning that since both of them ended up in the bottom 3, Adam knew he would be losing at least one of them by the end of the night. And to add to the drama of it all, Regan was ill and unable to perform a song for the Instant Save, though she was still eligible to receive it.

DeAndre was able to sing, though, but after he performed his rendition of “Amazed” he was in for an unpleasant surprised from his coach. After briefly praising DeAndre on his performance, Adam urged viewers to vote Regan through to the semi-finals over him.


“I cannot sing for Reagan. Reagan has to sing for Reagan … I have a very special relationship with Reagan, and I have two little girls at home, and the thought of breaking her heart by not urging everyone to give this girl a shot — to go redeem herself next week — would be too far beneath me.”

We don’t normally hear a coach vouch for one of their artists over another once we get to the later rounds of the show, and viewers did not take too kindly to Adam’s comment. It makes sense that many would be angry, especially when Regan didn’t even “sing for her life” on Tuesday night.

The Fan Reactions


One coach who has been getting a lot of love from the fans is Kelly Clarkson, who stood up for DeAndre while voting was still going on.

In the end, both members of Team Adam easily outvoted Team Blake’s Dave Fenley, but in a very close result, Regan was saved by the viewers and became the final member of Season 15’s top 8. And naturally, this caused the backlash to get worse.

What Do You Think?

Do you think The Voice did the right thing by letting Regan continue to compete despite not singing for the Instant Save? And is it okay for the coaches to play favorites? Sound off in the comments below!
