'The Voice' Season 18 Finale: Jonas Brothers debut music video for 'X', fans want live performance instead
It was earlier reported that the trio along with CAROL G will be performing on the finale night live.
The night has finally arrived when America will decide the winner of this season. The show kicked off with all the five finalists, their four coaches as well as joining them were Bebe Rexha (battle round advisor this season), CeeLo Green (coach for the initial 5 seasons of the show) and Shakira (coach for Season 4 and 6 on the show) performing remotely to Pete Townshend's "Let My Love Open the Door".
Then came the last 'Happy Hour' segment of the season. The brief session saw Nick Jonas poking fun at Blake Shelton's lack of knowledge of technology and John Legend cheering Nick's first season as a coach. He also played a song on his piano highlighting all the fun moments of this season including Blake's drinking, Kelly handing out jackets to her contestants as bait as well as newbie coach Nick making small notes in his diary during the auditions.
What came after this was the video premiere of the Jonas Brothers recently released single 'X' featuring the Latin Grammy award-winning reggaeton singer KAROL G. We all know that the song sounds amazing and super groovy, however, the video too was super cool and creatively edited. They did the best they could with the video given the recent conditions however, fans of the boy band were divided over the treatment of the music video.
One comment read, "I love seeing the @jonasbrothers and @Karolg music video of “X” on #TheVoice! It’s such a great song and Carson is right, the music video is very creative. JB continues to deliver, even during social distancing! #TheVoice #TeamNick."
While another comment of praise towards the video read, "The Jonas brother showing their music video On #thevoice for millions to stream which may bring them back to #1 .....we love our streaming Kings". Another comment read, "Just saw the @jonasbrothers and @karolg music video for “X” on #TheVoice !! Looks even better on the big screen! Let’s go!!"
The news was out that the Jonas Brothers would be 'performing' their song on the show with KAROL G. So the show airing their official music video instead of airing a live performance by the brothers disappointed some fans. One of the comments read, "If Gwen and Blake play a music video like the Jonas Brother’s instead of doing a live performance. I’ll be pissed. #TheVoice #VoiceFinale #NobodyButYou".
While another comment read, "Once again they have clowned us ... it’s just the music video".
Another disappointed fan wrote, "THEYRE JUST PLAYING THE MUSIC VIDEO ARE THEY REALLY DOING US LIKE THAT AND NOT DOING A PERFORMANCE ????? #TheVoice @NBCTheVoice @jonasbrothers".
