'The Voice': Kelly Clarkson picks Gymani over Kinsey Rose, fans say 'horrible move'
Kelly Clarkson fought tooth and nail to get Kinsey Rose and Gymani on her team. So, when she decided to pit these two powerhouse performers against each other for the knockouts round on 'The Voice', it definitely came as a huge surprise to everybody. Right from her auditions round, Kinsey caught both Kelly and Blake Shelton's attention with her soulful voice as she belted out her favorite country music songs.
On the other hand, Gymani left Ariana Grande starstruck when she performed one of Ariana's songs for her auditions and got a chair turn from her, but instead decided to join Team Kelly. For the knockouts round, Gymani picked 'Pillow Talk' as her song, while Kinsey chose 'Strawberry Wine'. Both the performers impressed Kelly and mega-mentor Ed Sheeran during their rehearsals. So, it was anybody's game during their final performance during the knockouts round.
Just like during their rehearsals, Kinsey and Gymani gave a power-packed performance on the final stage in a bid to get to the lives round. The coaches couldn't stop showering praises upon both the singers and their beautiful vocals. When it was finally time for Kelly to pick a winner, she found herself in a tricky spot. After some deliberation, Kelly picked Gymani as the winner. She however immediately added that she didn't pick Gymani because she thought she was a great singer but just because she felt she was a better competitor for the competition!
Kelly's statement left several fans irked. Fans took to Twitter to call out Kelly for picking Gymani over Kinsey. A fan tweeted, "Damn KELLY really did Kinsey dirty to out after that Gymani performance #TheVoice." "Kelly really said “I’m picking this person not because there the better singer” on the show called THE VOICE. omg I’m so mad and sad I love Kinsey SO MUCHHH #justiceforkinsey @KinseyRoseMusic #TheVoice @NBCTheVoice KINSEY I LOVE YOU I CAN’T WAIT TO GO TO ALL YOUR SHOWS!!," wrote a fan.
