Most Undeserving Battle Eliminations


Recommended Posts

Seeing a lot of these threads today so might as well add another...

Long story short, who are some contestants that you feel got eliminated unfairly in battles (meaning no steal or save)?

Specifically, who got robbed of a spot in the next round despite being better than their battle opponent?

Not meaning they deserved a steal, not meaning it was "dead even"... meaning they were better and deserved the win, period.

 

My thoughts:

S18: N/A (Although Kailey Abel would be close... that song just did nothing for either of them)

S17: Josie Jones, Injoy Fountain, Mendeleyev (imo they all did better than Kat, Alex, and Preston)

S15: Erika Zade, Emily Hough (better than Sarah or Reagan - I would've supported a steal/save for Sarah though) 

S13: Ignatious Carmouche (thought he was much better than Eric)

S10: Mike Schiavo (deserved the win more than Caroline)

S9: Lyndsey Elm (Self-explanatory)

S7: Maiya Sykes, Amanda Lee Peers (Maiya ofc; Amanda >>>> TJW and I will die on this hill.)

S6: ROUND 2: Ddendyl, Clarissa Serna (Ddendyl > Deja, but Clarissa Serna's one of the worst robberies on the show's history.)

S3: Jordan Pruitt (one of the first real unfair wins I saw in this show was Adriana Louise's... but the battle was pretty awful to begin with)

S16 Battles had AWFUL eliminations, like no one was beating Maelyn, but Cecily, Mikaela, Lili, Rizzi would have made the X-Battles much better. 

 

Just based from what we heard before Xbattles, Cecily, Rizzi, and Mikaela were all Top 12 material. 

 

Instead we got Carter, Celia, Kim and Gyth.

Blake got so much praise when he turned for Kendra, Lili and Cecily (who were all great, dont get me wrong), but eliminated all of them right away. We all joke about it but Kelly is the only one who takes one chair turns seriously at this point

Seriously though! Kendra, LiLi, and Cecily were all phenomenal one chairs who should've gone further! (didn't list em because Kendra got stolen, LiLi's wasn't aired so I can't judge, even with that tragic song choice, and Cecily/Selkii felt pretty even although I prefer Cecily overall).

Ciara Dumas and Rizzi S16

Mendeleyev S17 

Kailey S18

 

I dont agree with some mentioned above:

- Injoy Fountain: Yes she deserved a steal but Alex was much better for me, so much pontential, his KO performance was AMAZING

- Genesis Diaz: again, she absolutely deserved a steal for me (Alicia had both of her steals left when she performed) BUT Mia was 1000x times better

- Natali Brady: that was a great battle, so close... but Jake was fantastic! amazing artist he was so robbed that season (I mean Tyke and Steve over him 😡)

On what planet?  Even the coaches were stunned by that one.  No way he was better.

In my opinion, the battle was even. They are both very different stylistically which is why it's so easy to prefer one over the other. Injoy deserved a steal, and if she won, Alex did as well.

right? mikaela and rizzi were my fav and they're gone just like that. and mikaela is just 15 if im not mistaken and she have to go against first trio in the show history.  that's so frustrating. the voice usa seriously need to introduce all star contestant like the aus one

I certainly agree!  It's long overdue.
