The Voice's Unpopular Opinions Thread V2 in The Voice Posted December 20, 2019 Max for example. She could've guided him into a more popular direction, but instead she decided it was a good idea to turn him into a belter! wacko.gif I was right when I felt he'd have been better off with Gwen. He's the type of singer Gwen might have guided with more flair and he could've lasted a little longer. Has Max confirmed that he had nothing to do with choosing Unaware? That seems like an awfully random song choice for TPTB (or a coach) to foist on to someone during Dedication week. It seems like a week where the contestants would have more control (although some of them surely had no say after Dedication week). In fact I thought the song choice was a direct result of Max being clever and deciding to sing whatever he felt like singing and then just pretending his toddler niece/nephew like it - hey, what baby doesn't love Allen Stone? :lol: Also, it's not really a belter song? Didn't he sing it mainly in falsetto? Maybe it wasn't sentimental enough to connect with the audience during a particularly gloppy week, but I don't think it was a bad song choice for Max. Other contestants survived with less well known songs and songs that were less well-suited to them (and to this show). I think Max would have stayed and bounced back if he hadn't messed up his IS song.
