'The Voice' Viewers Blame Ariana Grande Fans For Gymani's Elimination: 'Ari's Fans Aren't About Talent'

All good things must come to an end. For Gymani’s good thing on The Voice, it ended Tuesday night when her performance failed to secure her spot in the competition. Vying for a spot in the Top 10, she found herself in the bottom this week.

Competing to be saved, the Team Kelly member went against Team Ariana’s father and son duo, Jim and Sasha Allen. Although Gymani possessed the talent and arguably delivered a better performance, the father and son duo was saved once again.

This sent fans of the show in an uproar. Many placed the onus of Gymani’s elimination on Grande’s fan base, the Arianators. Some accused them of voting just for the sake of having her make history as the youngest coach to secure the win instead of voting for talent.

Per usual, fans took to Twitter to post their issues with what occured.

“Gymani really deserved to be there. Ariana literally has millions of followers, 90% probably not even watching #thevoice and just voting blindly. We need a recount,” tweeted a fan.

Another fan tweeted, “#thevoice I don’t care who disagrees but it’s pissing me off that y’all are really voting for Ariana instead of the talent and people who deserve to win this is someone’s future and success, like can yall be your own person for once? Y’all know damn well gymani should have stayed.”

One person pointed out, "If gymani was on team ariana y’all would for sure vote her through over jim & sasha. don’t even lie."

Another added, “I bet half the people who voted for them didn’t even watch the performance, NO WAY Gymani should have went home, you used you following to win that smh. #TheVoice.”

“@NBCTheVoice @kellyclarkson @arianagrande #TheVoice Ariana’s fans want her to be the winning judge. One on her team will take this because of that. Gymani is profoundly talented, but Ari’s fans aren’t about talent – they’re about Ariana. Its really sad,” said someone else.
