'The Voice' Season 17 fans are tired of the sob stories of contestants on the show: 'Let them sing. The stories can come later'
Fans say that it's okay if they want to air the sob stories, but to save it for contestants who made it through to the live shows, and not everyone who auditions or makes it through the Blind Auditions
'The Voice' Season 17 might have moved on from the Blind Auditions, Battle Rounds and now into the Knockouts, but it looks like their continuous airing of pre-taped sob stories before each performance has not yet come to an end, and fans have had enough.
'The Voice' is not the only reality show that has been accused of airing sob stories. Other reality TV shows too have previously faced backlash from fans due to them casting contestants with sob stories over other more talented contestants, because of the high surge in ratings they receive.
Eventually, as the series continues, it more or less seems like the entire list of remaining contestants have had a bad past, with some sob story.
Fans say that it's okay if they want to air the sob stories, but to save it for contestants who made it through to the live shows, and not everyone who auditions or makes it through the Blind Auditions.
It almost seems like the producers could care any less about the contestants, and just want more contestants with sob stories because that helps connect them with the audience, who in return get hooked to the series, to see how far that contestant makes it.
With 'The Voice' Season 17 into the Knockouts, fans aren't holding back, as they share their disappointment with the series ever since it premiered. Taking to Twitter a fan wrote, "Do we really need to hear the sob stories every round? #TheVoice."
Another fan said, "Catching up on our DVR'd episodes of #TheVoice And about tired of everybody's sob story. Let me go on there and I'm gonna start crying and make up a story."
"OMG this show would be 30 minutes if we didn't have to watch all the sob stories. We don't care! I'm done. #TheVoice," wrote a fan while another shared, "This is why I HATE the sob stories. It’s so cringeworthy when no one turns after such a sad story. Just let them sing. The stories can come later. #thevoice."
"#TheVoice Wish they’d concentrate on the music and get away from all the sob stories. I think this distracts from the show. Love Songland format!" added a fan.
'The Voice' Season 17 airs every Monday and Tuesday night only on NBC. Check your local listings for more information.
