Block Button Bad Idea for the Voice


The fourteen season of the Voice has a new wrinkle, the block button. It gives each coach an opportunity to block a fellow coach from the chance of working with an artist. Now, I understand that is an attempt to add to the friendly competition between the coaches, and give the audience more entertainment. But I think that it is an unfair thing to do to artists. An artist might be blocked from picking the coach that she/he wanted to work with all because  another coach was having fun. It unfairly takes a choice from an artist, and that is wrong. People come on the show for an opportunity to develop their singing and possibly build a successful singing career. Nothing should be done to prevent them from doing that, and I think the block button does. This is the season that the block has been used on the Voice, hopefully it will be the last.
