'The Voice' Season 17 finale: Fans disappointed with Rose Short and Gwen Stefani's holiday special duet, claim 'she deserved better'
Rose and Gwen's duet was the last duet of the night, and fans claim that it didn't do justice compared to the other three duets.
'The Voice' season 17 is live with its grand finale, and fans claim that Rose Short and her coach Gwen Stefani's holiday special performance wasn't the best compared to the other three duets.
Rose Short was the last contestant to make it to the grand finale this season. She won the last spot by gaining the most votes after her Instant Save performance. The finalists this season are Jake Hoot, Rose Short, Ricky Duran, and Katie Kadan. Tonight each contestant performed three songs each, a solo, an original song, and a holiday special duet with their coach. Rose first performed her original song titled 'Steamroller' that was inspired by her life.
For her second performance, she took to stage with her coach Gwen Stefani and performed a holiday special. Their song was an original one written by Gwen titled, 'My Gift Is You'. Their set looked like something from the movie 'Hairspray' all glammed up with dancers behind them.
Rose and Gwen's duet was the last duet of the night, and fans claimed that it didn't do justice compared to the other three duets by the coaches and their finalists. Taking to Twitter a fan wrote, "Rose deserved a better performance. Why not let her allow to hit her potential? #TheVoice Disappointed. It's crap like this that hurts the voting. Stop pushing them out of their comfort zone during the Finales!"
"I am not feeling this at all. This is clearly Gwen's style and not Rose's; Gwen should have showcased Rose; and not her. This isn't about Rose and it needs to be. #TheVoice WHy not let her rip it? IT's the FINALE!!!!" a fan wrote. Adding to that another said, "We went from that Sarah McLachlan stunning duet from Jake and Kelly to.... this! Ya’ll did Rose and Gwen dirty by making them go after them #TheVoice."
"Oh no, no, no. Poor Rose. The other 3 had great duets and partners. #TheVoice," a fan shared, While another wrote, "Poor Rose has to duet with Gwen. I’m keeping positive but uhhh. #TheVoice."
