‘KCK3 sounded like backup’

Social media users expressed their opinion on Ariana picking Ryleigh over KCK3. “KCK3 TRIED to dominate that Battle, but Ryleigh was having none of it she just has the voice and charisma in spades-whoever doesn't get picked by ari should be instantly stolen by someone else and we will have no other result in this house.” Another shared, “KCK3 vs Ryleigh Plank. I am so partial to harmony but Ryleigh was slaying them vocal runs with max attitude. The group girls also pulled out their own can in their solos. Wow! This kept going back and forth for me. Good Battle!”
 
The next one added, “Ryleigh should win this season. I said what I said.” One posted, “KCK3 sounded like the backup singers to Ryleigh. Arianna would have been crazy to not choose her.” Meanwhile, one shared, “All 3 girls have been giving sour looks this whole time. like man y'all not gonna smile or even look at ryleigh?” Another user tweeted, “oof ryleigh really ate them up.” And, one slammed Ariana, saying, “Never knew Ariana Grande, just her great singing ability. But I see, since she is on The Voice, that she's as dumb as a post. Obviously God realized this (probably while she was in the womb) and so He gave her the gift of incredible singing ability, so she could survive.”
