Uh-oh! 70% of ‘The Voice’ fans have NOT forgiven Adam Levine for throwing DeAndre Nico under the bus [POLL RESULTS]

It looks like Adam Levine is still in hot water. In our recent poll that asked “The Voice” fans whether they forgave the Maroon 5 singer for last season’s DeAndre Nico/Reagan Strange controversy, a whopping 70% said NO. To compare, only 30% voted that YES, they’ve forgiven Adam for throwing DeAndre under the bus when both of Adam’s artists found themselves in the bottom two. How do you feel about this hot topic? Give us your thoughts down in the comments section.

To be clear, Adam didn’t break any rules when he essentially told fans to vote for Reagan instead of DeAndre. However, viewers believed that it showed a stunning lack of grace on Adam’s part and proved that winning “The Voice” was more important to him than keeping his dignity in tact.

Since Adam hadn’t won a championship since way back in Season 9, fans believed that his decision reeked of desperation. Unfortunately, his plan backfired, with DeAndre being voted out that night and Reagan being eliminated the following week. That meant Adam did not have a single artist competing in the season finale.

While DeAndre was a class act and never said a word about the controversy while on “The Voice” stage, he later told a news station, “I just felt like he sold me out. And I just don’t respect it, just being honest.” DeAndre was invited back to perform on the Season 15 finale in a group number of Kirk Franklin‘s “Declaration (This Is It!).”

Adam has starred as a “Voice” coach for all 16 cycles, winning in Season 1 (Javier Colon), Season 5 (Tessanne Chin) and Season 9 (Jordan Smith). As of this writing, after the first two blind audition episodes of Season 16 Adam’s new team consists of Trey Rose, Jimmy Mowery and Domenic Haynes. Find out who rounds out Adam’s team when “The Voice” continues airing Mondays and Tuesdays on NBC.
