The Voice’s Adam Levine: I Hate this Country (US) after TV Watchers didn’t vote for his singers

Well, Adam Levine is in hot water now, isn’t he? And it’s on tape. Adam made the remark after Carson Daly revealed that America had voted to save country music singer, Amber Carrington, one of Levine’s contestants. The statement was caught on Levine’s open mike, even though the camera was focused on fellow coach, Blake Shelton.

Levine’s comment seemed out-of-place, especially since America had chosen to keep one his singers on the show. Earlier in the evening, however, two of Levine’s other contestants, early frontrunner, Judith Hill, and soul singer, Sarah Simmons, were eliminated.

Levin put out this statement to the media and fans:

“I obviously love my country very much, and my comments last night were made purely out of frustration. Being a part of The Voice, I am passionately invested in my team and want to see my artists succeed. Last night’s elimination of Judith and Sarah was confusing and downright emotional for me, and my comments were made based on my personal dissatisfaction with the results. I am very connected to my artists and know they have long careers ahead, regardless of their outcome on the show.”

For those still tracking the results of ‘The Voice’ voting, Levine, Usher, and Shakira each have one remaining contestant. Blake Shelton, who has coached the winner in the last two seasons, has three remaining contestants.  Clearly, Blake has figured out how to play this game.
