Last week on The Voice, coach Adam Levine made a controversial decision to support Reagan Strange over DeAndre Nico (both of whom were on Levine's team) when Strange could not perform due to illness, and fans of the show responded in anger. In this week's performance episode on Monday evening, Levine took a minute to address the situation by telling Strange that he spoke to Nico and the two artists are reportedly "good" now.
"It was a strange week, but it's over now. DeAndre's my boy. I love him. We talked," Levine said during the Top 8 episode as he coached Strange through her practice.
Nico and Strange had both been up for elimination that evening along with Dave Fenley, meaning that these artists had to perform one last time before fans voted in an "Instant Save." However, Strange was not on stage all night because of her illness, and was unable to sing for her spot like the others. Levine chose to be the voice for Strange and encouraged voters to save her, disregarding Nico's performance.
Despite the backlash on social media last week following the incident, Levine appears to be standing by his decision to push votes for Strange.
