The 8 Most-Robbed Contestants of ‘The Voice’ Season 5
This has become an annual tradition (or, in the case of "The Voice," a biannual one): listing the robbed finalists and semifinalists from any given talent show. Not all of my favorites can make a show's top 10, and obviously, only one can win. So any singing-show season offers its unfair share of heartache.
It's both a blessing and a curse on "The Voice" in particular that the talent level is so high and the talent pool so deep. This ensures that a lot of very worthy candidates get cut early on, while on other talent shows, they may have gone all the way. There are definitely some singers from this "Voice" season that I would've liked to see go a lot further.
Here's my list of the most-robbed contestants of "The Voice" Season 5…
8. Shelbie Z – The first time I saw this country diva, I thought she had the goods to lead Blake Shelton to a fourth victory. She came out roaring at the Blind Auditions with "Here For the Party," and she partied hard. Shelbie-with-a-Z spit pure fire. The fact that she didn't make the top 12 was a shock. Maybe she would have been better off competing on "The Voice's" much more country-centric Season 4.
7. Nic Hawk – Yes, I know this dude was polarizing. And yes, I know he didn't have the best voice of the season, and that this show is called "The Voice." I don't care. He was fun. He was interesting. He was born to perform. Season 5 became a lot less exciting after Nic left.
