The Voice public voting scewed?

I have to ask for what was going on with viewer voting on Saturday night.  Joelle as one of the bottom 2 for Will's team?  I had her and Jazz as the best of the night.  Ok for Toms team he had the 2 lowest voted for, but I can't make sense of Joelle being 4th/5th in the public votes for Wills team.

@Gus
If it is not live and pre recorded that means when they open up the phone lines they cant be open for long

I think it's all too common knowledge that all the phone in voting things were scams a few years back along with the competitions. The TV channels claimed to have changed their ways but we only have their say so. There is nothing to prove they have.

Re: The Voice public voting scewed?

A few years back I worked for one of the companies that handled TV competition telephone traffic, and can assure you during the "lines open" period thousands and thousands of callers rang in, raising revenue for the TV production company and for the traffic company. Whether any notice is taken of the calls or if the result is pre-ordained is another matter.
We did watch the early "Voice" shows but got cheesed off with screeching female "singers"...why do these singers screech these days? not so much singing more screaming..
Gave up watching the programme, really don't care about it any more and don't miss it at all.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

That and all the other 'reality' TV shows.
