How The Voice could have avoided its Adam Levine/Reagan Strange fiasco
The Voice coach's decision to support 14-year-old Strange, even though she was too sick to perform, at the expense of his other teammates resulted in a torrent of angry comments. As Charlie Mason notes, "the whole debacle could have been avoided if only the series had had in place a rule stating that, if a contestant can’t go on, they’ve gotta go. Done. Finito. And we get it — that sounds harsh (and maybe it is). But that’s showbiz. The Voice is a singing competition. If a singer can’t sing, they can’t compete. Period. If nothing else, such a rule would be — unlike, say, Adam — fair and impartial."
