‘The Voice’ Season 18: App glitches spoil voting for four-way knockout round, fans call it a 'piece of crap'
'The Voice' has often been a staple diet for fans of reality talent shows. You get some of the most amazing vocal performances and a variety of winners who went on to make their mark on the music industry, such as Sawyer Fredericks (from Season 8), Danielle Bradbery (Season 4) and Cassadee Pope (Season 3), among others.
But while the TV shows are one thing, something is stirring on the show's app and it is leaving a bitter taste in the mouth of fans. It looks like the show didn't iron out its new four-way-knockout style for the voting properly as the app is glitching.
Monday night's episode (April 20) was meant to be the first of its kind in the history of the competition, where, instead of your usual two contestants going head to head, the four contestants saved during the battles would face off in a four-way sing-off and only one winner would come out of the four-way Knockout with the chance to move forward to the live shows.
Fans have been getting angry with the weird glitches which are allowing them to vote for someone who hasn't even performed yet as well as not allowing them to vote for someone other than their last performance.
"@blakeshelton #VoiceKnockouts man what’s going on I can’t get my app to go past one set of artist I’m missing everyone else!" complained a fan while another one responded with their error issue, "I can’t get the app to go past the vote button for the four saves!! I signed out on my iPad and it is that way on my phone, iPad or computer and signed in or not!! Frustrating!!"
Another fan wrote: "WHAT A BUMMER! " with a gif that says "This party's dyin'." A long-time fan of the show said they were going to look for something else to watch, saying, "@blakeshelton #VoiceKnockouts for the first time in years I am changing the channel this format sucks! It is not 4 way! I can vote for someone who hasn’t even sung yet" One fan showed their anger by starting a hashtag "#PieceOfCrap" and said "@kellyclarkson #VoiceKnockouts theAppIsNotLettingUsVoteForSomeOfYourTeam.#PieceOfCrap"
There may still be a way for 'The Voice' to iron out these glitches, but one thing is for sure, they better do it fast.
