Another fan commented, "Nia should have won. She is more exciting to watch. Emma is also very good not discounting her but her voice felt more smooth, girlish and introvert." "Uhmmm... I would've picked Nia. There's something special about her. I wouldn't say Emma's was cleaner, I would say notes were hit and tone was beautiful and for Nia, I wouldn't just say she was just energetic. I would say she was passionate," shared a fan. " "That's the problem of the voice, they never choose the whole possible package. They just think about the belting stuff and that's why the winners never get that famous. Cause to be an artist in this industry is more than just hit high notes. I think Nia has a quality star more than Emma," pointed out a fan. "Nia is the whole package. Emma has that classical belty voice. She was soaring on those high notes, but Nia has that star dust. The fit, her distinct voice, her stage presence! She has this pop punk sound that is just so good and it enjoyed so much emotional because it is so raw. She actually gives me Gwen down in her stage presence. However, I felt Emma was gonna win due to every talking about how mature her voice is. John has really been going with the point of picking their vocalist hands down. I get it, it’s called the voice, but I think “The Voice” is very much a fixed term and they are of course looking for that whole package. I’m shook Nia was not stolen or something. She is a beast. I could totally see America falling in love with her. Nobody is singing the music she is either. Ugh I’m peeved!" expressed a fan.
