Thunderstorm Artis was robbed of ‘The Voice’ win, say 31% of viewers

On “The Voice” season 18 finale on Tuesday, Todd Tilghman pulled off a win over Thunderstorm Artis, who had been the frontrunner all season long. In our overnight poll, 31% of those weighing in wanted Thunderstorm to win and think that he was robbed of the season 18 title. Todd did not merit a majority of votes from “The Voice” fans and has only 39% of the total tally as of this writing.

Toneisha Harris, who made “The Voice” history as the first Instant Save artist in the final not to be eliminated at the outset, is at 21%. The other two contenders in the Top 5 registered in the single digits: CammWess (5%) and Micah Iverson (4%).

What do you think? Did Todd Tilghman deserve to win “The Voice”? Or do you think Thunderstorm Artis was robbed of the season 18 championship? Even though he lost on May 19, this singer from Hawaii could end up the big winner. His talents were showcased in the finale as he got the chance to sing three songs.
