by Matt Tamanini

(9/22/2014) - I'm sorry Blake Shelton, I have rooted for your team since the first season of THE VOICE, but no longer. Yes, you are still one funny, country rapscallion, but I will not be pulling for you to take home your fourth VOICE title. Yes, your single finger "Pick Me" gesture is still one of the most endearingly dorky things this side of Zooey Deschanel, but I can't in good conscience pick you to win. Yes, I did root for your future wife Miranda Lambert on the first season of NASHVILLE STAR, but I can't root for you anymore. The reason? Two words: Gwen Stefani.
