'The Voice' 2023 Playoffs: Fans 'disappointed' after Team Chance sends Ray Uriel to semi-finals
UNIVERSAL CITY, CALIFORNIA: 'The Voice' Season 23 finale is almost around the corner. With the ending being so near, fans are curious to know the fate of the singers. In Playoffs Premiere round we saw four singers being advanced to the semi-finals. And, one among them was Ray Uriel.
Despite Ray's outstanding performance, 'The Voice' fans were not satisfied with it. They do agree that the NBC reality show's singer did well in the Playoff round but fans believed that there were other singers who performed way better than him and still got eliminated from the show. Does that mean Ray was not worth the pick? Did Chance the Rapper make the wrong choice?

Ray Uriel advances to semi-final round
Ray Uriel has always been seen choosing the safe side by singing R&B. The singer donned the Playoff Premiere round with his smooth voice, singing 'Essence.' His sultry tone did impress the panelists but the pitches used were not known. There was a moment in the middle of Ray's singing where he hit the high note. It made Kelly Clarkson stand out of her chair and give a standing ovation to the singer. Soon after the performance, Kelly claimed Ray's voice is "like the angel she would want to sing to her." Blake Shelton on the other hand advised Chance the Rapper to let Ray go advance to the Playoff round. Niall Horan on the other hand claimed that he could listen to Ray singing every week. Chance the Rapper advances Ray to the semi-finals after eliminating Kala Banham, Manasseh Samone, and Jamar Langley from his team.
'I just don't find what they see in Ray'
Seeing Ray advance to the semi-finals a fan tweeted, "Chance has a great team but I just don't find what they see in Ray. He sings as if he is putting a lot of effort in it as opposed to the others who feel more effortless." Another asked Chance the Rapper and 'The Voice,' "I did not see you taking Ray. I’m literally shocked bro." Furthermore, a fan trashed the coach's decision of choosing Ray and claimed Jamar was better than Ray. The fan wrote, "@chancetherapper #TheVoice so glad Sorelle advanced on & Jamar was better than Ray."

Another disappointed fan tweeted, "disappointed manasseh isn't in the live. I like her voice more than Ray." Seeing Kala get eliminated and Ray moving ahead a furious fan wrote, "OMG I can’t believe you let Kala go Im sorry but she’s 1000 times better than Ray, nothing against him … he’s good but nowhere near her Now Sorelle awesome choice." A fan advised Chance the Rapper, "I forgot Kala was on your team. Switch Ray and Kala will sell records!"
