UNIVERSAL CITY, CALIFORNIA: During the most recent episode of ‘The Voice’ Season 25, viewers were treated to an electrifying showdown between two exceptionally talented contestants from Team Legend. Gene Taylor and Mafe Spanish, both vying for a chance to advance in the competition, went head-to-head in the highly anticipated Knockouts Round.


Gene delivered a heartfelt rendition of Aerosmith’s hit song ‘I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing.’ On the other hand, Mafe opted for a more understated approach with her cover of Ariana Grande’s soulful ballad ‘Almost Is Never Enough.’


After their performances, Chance the Rapper commented on Gene’s pitch being slightly inaccurate, however, Dan + Shay were very complimentary of his vocals, stating that they were some of the most exceptional technically out of all the competitors.


Despite both artists showcasing their talent and stage presence, only one could move forward on Team Legend. In the end, John Legend ultimately decided to advance Mafe in the competition, which means Gene Taylor was eliminated.

Soon after, the fans of the show began discussing how Gene’s poor selection of song could have been the reason for his elimination.

An X user said, “I like Gene, but that wasn’t a good song choice for him. I get taking risks, but you’re trying to win the competition. He should’ve picked something else. He was all over the place.”



Another user chimed in,” @NBCTheVoice Sorry, Gene, that wasn’t my favorite… it didn’t feel like you were connected to the music.”



Followed by a user who penned, “Might have not been the best song choice, but no denying Gene Taylor had one of the best voices this season.”

An unimpressed user shared, “Horrible lol.”
