The Voice has been running successfully as a Reality TV singing competition show since 2011. This year though, a certain contestant has interfered with the fairness of the competition. Viewers are quite furious.

Coaches Blake Shelton, John Legend, Ariana Grande and Kelly Clarkson have meticulously formed their teams. Each coach chose the best artists ahead of the live shows, when fan voting is what matters most. That being said, some fans think one member of Team Blake should not be allowed to compete at all.

Wendy Moten is a singer who has been performing since the 1990s She has sung backup vocals for popular country music artists like Tim McGraw and Faith Hill on their tours from 2005 through 2018. According to her website, Moten also toured with Martina McBride and Vince Gill.

But wait the extra-ordinary resume doesn’t end here, She is a member of a Grammy Award winning band called the The Time Jumpers. Moten has released six studio albums and one EP!

Fans have taken to twitter to voice their criticism. Many have demanded her dismissal from the show as it will be unfair to other ordinary participants.

“with all due respect why was Wendy allowed on #thevoice she has way too much experience and doesn’t need coaching. Baffling,” A fan tweeted.

Another wrote, “#TheVoice NO for Wendy since this lady has already won a Grammy! How fair is that! Guess the voice doesn’t care. Sure isn’t what they say they are.”

This surely seems a bit unfair to the other contestants who come from ordinary backgrounds. At the end of the day the whole point of having “coaches” is to train talented but amateur singers.
