The Dryes wow Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani, but 'The Voice' fans dub husband-wife duo's performance 'flat'
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Sometimes the audience can be much harsher critics than 'The Voice' judges themselves. Though husband and wife duo Derek and Katelyn Dryes managed to wow Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani with their rendition if 'Islands in the Stream', fans were unfortunately left feeling unimpressed.
The couple took to the stage hoping to wow Blake with their country "twang" and managed to accomplish precisely that. By the end of their performance, Blake and Gwen couldn't stop raving about the duo's vocals. Blake revealed how Derek's vocals drews him in in account of how classically country it was. Gwen too praised the duo for their song choice and revealed how it's always been her dream to perform the iconic country song with her husband Blake. Their fellow coaches Camila Cabello and John Legend were left feeling amused watching a husband and wife duo (Blake & Gwen), fighting over another married couple. In the end the Dryes decided to join Team Blake.

While The Dryes left the stage grinning from ear to ear, and Blake looked pleased with is win, fans didn't share the same feeling. Several 'The Voice' fans took to the show's YouTube clip of the performance to slam the "flat" and "pitchy" performance. A fan commented, "Ummm.. Chairs turned for this? So the girl is okay.. Pitchy but definitely has potential.. Him though? In my opiniom, horrible and he clearly thinks he has the best voice ever when he is singing.. It's a no for me but to each their own." "This is all over the place. I like the song, but I wouldn’t have turned for them," wrote another fan. " Sounds kinda flat to me," added a fan.
Another fan shared, "I don't get why Blake turned for this except he has to have singers he can reject to send his favorites through I guess? It was pitchy and all over the place. Just did not like his voice at all." "A pitchy mess. and overly sytlized singing that makes the lyric almost unintelligible," observed a fan. "Really pitchy but Blake will coach them up. Out of Ryhtm between the two. But when the girl started singing when Gwen tirned, that was good vocals," seconded a fan.
Hopefully The Dryes will manage to change the fans' perception of them with their future performances.
'The Voice' Season 22 airs on Mondays and Tuesdays at 8/7c on NBC and is available for streaming on Peacock.
