‘The Voice’ Fans Are Pissed Blake Shelton Blamed Gwen Stefani For His Mistake
The country crooner is coming under fire from fans of The Voice for calling out his girlfriend and fellow judge on live television for his own mistake.
It all went down on Monday's episode of the reality competition series. In the episode, contestant Brandon Royal showed off his pipes with a rendition of Bob Marley's "Redemption Song" in the third round of knockouts.
Not recognizing the iconic Marley song, Blake thought he'd add that to his critique.
That's when things got ugly. Gwen and fellow judge Alicia Keys lambasted the country singer for not knowing one of the reggae icon's most famous hits.
“I know ‘One Love,’” the singer tried to defend himself.
Realizing that his excuse wasn't getting him anywhere, Blake decided to shift gears. He then placed the blame on his girlfriend for not expanding his musical repertoire.
“I feel like that’s her responsibility," he told Alicia, referring to Gwen.
Fans quickly flooded Blake's mentions, accusing the singer of being immature and a bit sexist. Fans also pointed out that Blake had heard "Redemption Song" before.
It was in Season 5 when eventual winner Tessanne Chin (who was on Team Adam) performed the song in front of Blake. Did he just black it out?
