The Voice is known for its blind audition rounds, where contestants strive to turn the chairs of the coaches without being seen by them. While this exciting phase of the competition has come to an end, the recent episode of The Voice left viewers in shock when one singer received an inexplicable diss from the coaches. In this article, we will recap and analyze the shocking moments from the final blind audition rounds of The Voice, and delve into why one talented artist was overlooked by the judges.
Tuesday’s episode of The Voice marked the conclusion of the show’s 23rd season blind auditions, revealing the final four promising contestants who will move on to the next round. However, amidst the excitement and anticipation of the new competitors, viewers were left puzzled by the lack of attention given to one contestant’s performance. Alyssa Lazar’s audition, which earned her a spot on Team Chance, was strangely abbreviated in contrast to the other singers whose performances were given more airtime. While the show found time for comedic skits, gimmicks, and even reminders that this was Blake Shelton’s final visit to the rodeo, it couldn’t spare two minutes to allow viewers to hear Lazar’s performance which had earned her a spot in the competition. The decision saddened many viewers and raised the question of whether the show treated her unfairly.
Despite this unfortunate incident, the episode featured performances from the last singers added to the coach’s teams. NariYella, a four-chair turn whose passion and power were the highlights of her performance, earned an A- grade from the show’s critics. Grace West, a songwriter from Nashville, joined Team Blake with her country-style singing and earned a B grade for her rendition of “Maybe It Was Memphis.” Katie Beth Forakis, a grad-school student from small-town Tennessee, sang Justin Bieber’s “Ghost” in a lo-fi version, earning a B-.
However, Talia Smith’s performance was likely the most memorable of the night with an outstanding cover of Tori Kelly’s “Don’t You Worry ‘Bout a Thing.” As an intel analyst for the US Army who sang with poise, energy, and great control, Smith earned an A grade from the critics. Niall Horan, one of the show’s coaches, was astonished by her singing and admitted he would have turned his chair quickly had he had a spot open on his team.
As for Alyssa Lazar, The Voice’s decision to abbreviate her performance angered many fans who thought it was unfair and not worthy of her talent. The show’s Facebook page was bombarded with comments demanding an explanation for the move, but the producers remained silent on the subject. Some fans pointed out that this was not the first time The Voice had treated its contestants unfairly; other singers in the past have been given similar treatment, and it raises questions of transparency and fairness in the show’s selection process.
On the other hand, some viewers suggested that the performance was merely cut short to fit the show’s schedule as it had to cover various other aspects of the competition. They argued that the show’s running time is limited and that producers often prioritize their ratings over contestants’ performances. They added that The Voice had to cram numerous segments that evening, leaving little time for each singer’s performance. Despite different views on the issue, one thing is clear – viewers will be eagerly watching Alyssa Lazar’s upcoming performances to see if she rises to the challenge and proves the show’s critics wrong.
Overall, The Voice’s season 23 final blind auditions raised mixed feelings among fans. On the one hand, we witnessed great musical performances, new talents, and promising core competitors. On the other hand, the show left some viewers disappointed due to its treatment of contestants like Alyssa Lazar. Regardless, the show has a long way to go, and it needs to address transparency and fairness issues if it wants to maintain its reputation as one of the singing competition shows.
Overall, The Voice has once again kept us on our toes with its latest episode. The end of the blinds delivered an unexpected surprise as one singer was given an inexplicable diss. Despite this, we can’t help but look forward to what the rest of the competition will bring. As the coaches continue to build their teams and the contestants strive to prove themselves, we can expect the drama to only increase. So, let’s sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride as we watch the talent unfold on The Voice.
