Hes been getting blasted for his off-the-cuff, I hate this country remark from The Voice last night (May 28), and Adam Levine wants to set the record straight.
The Never Going To Leave This Bed crooner mumbled the comment after two of his contestants were eliminated via online voting, and he insists he wasnt referring to a personal lack of patriotism.
Levine told press, “I obviously love my country very much and my comments last night were made purely out of frustration.
“Being a part of The Voice, I am passionately invested in my team and want to see my artists succeed. Last night”s elimination of Judith and Sarah was confusing and downright emotional for me and my comments were made based on my personal dissatisfaction with the results.
Adam added, “I am very connected to my artists and know they have long careers ahead, regardless of their outcome on the show.”
Following the show last night, Levine lamented, “I”m sad . . . and a little pissed off, to be honest. I was shocked, actually. I think they all gave us really strong performances . . . I”m really passionate about these singers and their talent and believe that maybe their talent was overshadowed by some other things.”
