Chronology
2016-17

The eighth season of Vote for the Girls premiered on September 12, 2016 and ended on May 17, 2017. Ava Zinn officially announced Vote for the Girls's renewal on March 28, 2016.[1]

Ava Zinn and Holly Everman returned for their eighth consecutive season with Lanise White, Kendra Ray, Kymberly Alvaraz, Tracia (Ward) Matthewson, Danni McClannahan, Kathi Jameson, and Karly Jameson returning for their third season. Former moderator Hillary Matthewson, who returned after a two season absence (after marrying Tracia Ward), Rachael Passalt, Ann Dwyar, Kylie Dwyar, Marti McDaniel, Breeanna Sorensen, Tim Doogan, Donna Doogan, joined the moderator panel following the departures of Kellie Rock, Kathy Roberts, and Julia Passalt[2][3][4]. Nine additional moderators Nadia Lorenzo, Peta-Alyce Kaizer, Hannah Wilson, Maribel Mort, Maci Blanca, Sophia Williams, Natasha Gower, Jenny Riva, and Tulissa Kümmert all signed on.

Archibald Coolranch returned for his eighth season with Clark Jones returning for his fourth season as well as Luka Runecraft and Glenn Swaringen returning for their second season as villains with new villains Phil Allen, Ted Shields, Steve Baker, Bill Delagatto, Jacqui Fountaine, Kye Sanchez and Tavon Savage.

This was the final season featuring Archibald Coolranch as a villain as he announced he is retiring as head villain[5]. It was also the last season to feature Holly Everman, Kymberly Alvaraz, Tracia Matthewson, Hillary Matthewson, Ann Dwyar, and Perri Johnson as moderators. Holly Everman died during production of the scheduled eighth season finale on May 23, 2017 and Perri Johnson died on April 24, 2017.

Notable events[edit]

Expansion and realignment[edit]

With the arrival of the new moderators, Passalt inheriting her father's role and the return of Hillary Matthewson joining the 14 (ten females and four males) existing moderators, the main moderator panelists and villains were realigned into eight divisions: two villains in each division in the Men's Conference with four moderators in each division in the Women's Conference and four divisions in each conference. In creating the new divisions, the producers and directors tried to maintain the historical rivalries from the old alignment, while at the same time attempting to organize the moderators geographically. Legally, two pink team moderators (Tracia Ward and Holly Everman) and two purple team moderators (Ava Zinn and Kathi Jameson) were required to be in different divisions as part of any realignment proposals; this was because Tracia Ward and Ava Zinn share the Fort Wayne market and Holly Everman and Karly Jameson share the Indianapolis market.[6]

The major changes were: [7]

Additional changes during the season were:

  • Nadia Lorenzo became the fifth woman (after Kymberly Alvaraz, Lanise White, Karly Jameson, and Thia Tola) to move from the pink to purple team after the Pruple Team's dismal performance and Peta-Alyce would eventually announced she had sold her virginity to Lorenzo.
  • New moderator Jacqui Fountaine filled in as a guest moderator for Purple Team East's Lanise & Danni during White's maternity leave. Fountaine would later move to the Blue Team East and becomes the first woman on the Villain panel.
  • New moderator Maribel Mort was placed in the Purple Team East as Lorenzo's replacement.

This season is largely intended to preserve the traditional rivals in the same division. Plans are in the works add more moderators in the future.

Assassination of Christina Grimmie[edit]

Christina Grimmie (1994-2016), was assassinated following a concert in Orlando, Florida.

On June 10, 2016, Vote for the Girls supported contestant Christina Grimmie was shot by 27-year-old Kevin James Loibl while she signed autographs following her performance with Orlando-based band Before You Exit at The Plaza Live in Orlando, Florida. Loibl then fatally shot himself after being confronted by Grimmie's brother Marcus.[8][a] Grimmie was taken to the Orlando Regional Medical Center in critical condition; she later died from her injuries on June 11.[10]

The Orlando Police Department reported that Loibl did not have an arrest record in his home county, and did not appear to know Grimmie personally.[11] A department spokesman said Loibl had traveled to Orlando "apparently to commit this crime";[12] Loibl had brought with him two handguns, two extra magazines full of ammunition, and a hunting knife.[12] One theory confirmed by Ava Zinn confirmed Loibl was reportedly stalking Grimmie. [13] Zinn said immediately the murder of Rebecca Schaeffer came as a theory the second Loibl was named as the suspect.

Aftermath, Coverage, and Reaction

Shortly following Grimmie's murder, the entire moderator panelists of Vote for the Girls anchored and reported coverage of the assassination of Christina Grimmie.


Grimmie's life and death became the topic of the season eight premiere episode, which will air in September 2016. [14] Grimmie's death and a brief overview will also be highlighted in the 200 Women Picked special.

However, the children's edition of Vote for the Girls is being put on hiatus in response to Grimmie's death. However, the moderator panelists except Zinn, Alvaraz, and White decided to participate in the thirteenth season of So You Think You Can Dance (aka So You Think You Can Dance: The Next Generation.)

In the closing credits of Vote for the Girls (of which on nearly all episodes feature the supported contestants), "Christina Grimmie (1994-2016)" now appears in the end credits.

Hairstyle changes[edit]

Holly Everman, Tracia Matthewson and Karly Jameson stopped using hair straightners and began appearing on Vote for the Girls USA for the first time with curly hair. It is interesting to note that all three women were on the pink team during the third season of the of Vote for the Girls UK.

Three female moderators decided to let their hair go to a naturally curly state by the start of the eighth season. Two pink team moderators Tracia Matthewson and Holly Everman and a purple team moderator Karly Jameson all stopped using hair straightening products as Everman and Jameson have passed the age of 30.

Everman, who had shaved her head in May 2014, allowed her hair to grow to a natural state for two years before going naturally curly near the end of the seventh season.

Matthewson went on Fort Wayne CBS affiliate WTOR-FTV with curly hair for the first time in her career on July 18, 2016 as well as having her on-air name changed from Tracia Ward to Tracia Matthewson as WTOR had recently changed their news graphics, despite being afraid of what viewers might say. "I was a bit nervous as I was touching my hair to clam down the bendiness," Matthewson said during a taping of the revival of Jameson's talk show. At the taping Jameson also taped the first episode with curly hair also for the first time in her career.


WEWS-TV sportscaster Lauren Brill also went curly in 2016.[15]

Tavon Savage becomes Bria Savage[edit]

Announced on December 22, 2016, that Tavon Savage was undergoing a gender transition to female.


Discipline for on-set incidents[edit]

Pink and Purple Team altercations

Upon seeing that her pick of Lauren Diaz (chosen by Ava & Kymberly) was not saved by Miley Cirus, two altercations involving Kymberly Alvaraz and Donna Doogan with Ann Dwyar and Karly Jameson, respectively broke out causing the four women to be ejected for the rest of the episode. Doogan's shoes, Alvaraz's ring, Jameson's necklace, and Dwyar's hairpiece were torn off, then punches were exchanged in return with Alvaraz's girlfriend and Doogan's husband to break-up the fight. Despite the four women being ejected, only Alvaraz and Doogan were suspended for one show, but three of the four duo moderators involved (Donna & Tim, Ann & Kylie, and Kathi & Karly) were fined $10,000 each for their actions with Alvaraz fined $25,000 for her actions. The fines will be deducted from their winnings.

Discipline for off-set incidents[edit]

Glenn Swaringen is guilty of DWI, suspended 6 shows

Vote for the Girls villain Glenn Swaringen was arrested on August 30 near his home in Kokomo, Indiana on suspicion of driving while intoxicated (DWI) after failing field sobriety tests. Preliminary charges of DWI were filed against Swaringen, who was jailed overnight.[16] Swaringen had undergone treatment for alcohol addiction previously in the late 1980s.[17] Swaringen returned to the villain panel October 10.[18]

On September 2, 2016, Swaringen was charged with one misdemeanor counts in the incident: operating a vehicle while intoxicated, which is a Class C misdemeanor in Indiana.

Prosecutors alleged Swaringen was under the influence of alcohol and noted an unrelated incident during the site's previous season which Swaringen was speeding through I-69 north at 100 miles per hour in an effort to save his wife after she had an allergic reaction to macadamia nuts and eventually succumbed to the food allergy. Given the charges it is likely that Swaringen will avoid any jail time. Swaringen's daughter, Cathryn (also the sister of the late VFTG moderator Ariel Swaringen), was asked to take over Swaringen's role while he was in rehab, but she declined due to her commitments at WIFX competitor and Indianapolis ABC O&O WHOO (a station Swaringen previously worked for and his wife owned and previously worked at).

On September 4, 2016, Swaringen was sentenced to one year of probation during which he is forbidden from consuming or possessing alcohol and his driving privileges were revoked for a period of six months. He will be subject to random drug testing as a condition of his probation. In addition, the judge stipulated that any subsequent DWI charge in a two year period will be treated as a felony. Ava Zinn suspended Swaringen for six shows and also levied a fine of $100,000. As a result, Swaringen will have to forefit the $100,000. He was also forbidden from doing any media interviews or making comments related to the blue team on social media during the suspension.

Kymberly Alvaraz domestic violence suspension; placed on leave

Purple team west moderator Kymberly Alvaraz was arrested on charges of domestic violence after an altercation with her girlfriend, Ava Zinn, which took place near a dentist's office on January 19, 2017. Alvaraz was arrested at the Marion, Indiana Police headquarters at approximately 3:30 p.m. Thursday, January 19, 2017, and charged with second-degree strangulation, second-degree battery, second-degree threatening and disorderly conduct for allegedly choking her girlfriend.

Alvaraz will plead no contest to the charges after she immediately requested a trial by jury which under Indiana's legal system means that the terms of the sentencing are put on hold pending the jury trial.[19]

Because the legal process had not yet played out, Alvaraz immediately took a leave of absence from her position at CBS 41 and placed on the inactive list until the charges are adjudicated. Alvaraz will continue to get paid, but was not allowed to have any contact with Zinn or any Vote for the Girls moderator.[20]

On January 29, 2017, Alvaraz announced as a result of her actions, Ava & Kymberly were disqualified for the remainder of the season; therefore ending Zinn's seven season winning moderator record streak and Alvaraz's two season winning moderator record streak. Although disqualified, Ava Zinn will continue to host, while Zinn & Alvaraz were fined $500,000 with $250,000 forfeited as they had 25 unused flex picks.

Records, milestones, and notable statistics[edit]

Many of the site's moderator or villains season broke records or made history for the show in a number of ways.

  • Archibald Coolranch's six season winning streak on America's Got Talent ended after his final pick Julia Scotti was eliminated.
  • Bill Delagatto was the first villain to be disqualified for mistakenly picking a Vote for the Girls pick.
  • Tavon Savage (now Bria Savage) became the first male moderator at the time or villain to win on Vote for the Girls upon Grace VanderWaal's win on America's Got Talent.
  • Phil Allen became the first transman moderator on Vote for the Girls to have a "double victory" upon the America's Got Talent 11 third place finish of Jon Dorbenos.
  • Ava Zinn and Kymberly Alvaraz's respective seven and two season winning moderator record streak came to an end after Alvaraz's domestic violence arrest on January 19, 2017, resulting in their disqualification for the remainder of the season.

This season also marked a first in the site's history:

  • This season is the first to not use the "Moderator's Save" to decline Tate McRae's third place finish, and therefore making the first time a "loss" was declared on So You Think You Can Dance. The Moderators' Save was introduced in the sixth season.
  • It is the first Double victory where the winner and runner-up of America's Got Talent were both VFTG picks chosen by Zinn's Villains.
  • Tim Doogan became the first male to join the moderator panel joining his wife, Donna.
  • Jacqui Fountaine, Jenna Monroe, Marla McClinton, Sonia Donbar, Sal Brock, Carrie Ewan, and Nadine Cole became the first females to join the Zinn's Villain panel.
  • Despite the Moderator's Save" being used to decline Lauren Duski's second place finish, Ava Zinn overruled the decision, making all four teams losers and marking the first time in the history of Vote for the Girls that no moderator had won (although Sophia & Maci did get their third moderator victory when Chris Blue was announced the winner of the twelfth season of The Voice and Kathi & Karly earned their second moderator victory Rashad Jennings won the 24th season of Dancing with the Stars).
    • Had Normani Kordei and Lauren Duski won, the reward would have been a week at Indiana Beach with lunch and dinner at Brook's Upper Crust Pizza in Marion, Indiana. Instead, all four teams were forced to clean the Vote for the Girls set and prepare for the next season in addition to the America's Got Talent and So You Think You Can Dance competitons.


Nadia Lorenzo, Peta-Alyce Kaizer, Kathi Jameson, Karly Jameson, Sophia Williams, and Maci Blanca respectively became the seventh, eighth, ninth, tenth, thirteenth, and fourteenth winning moderator on the site with Lorenzo, Kaizer, Williams, and Blanca joining Ava Zinn, Tracia Ward, Kymberly Alvaraz, Thia Tola, Kendra Ray, and Perri Johnson to win as a moderator in their first season. Kaizer and Lorenzo became the winning moderator of the thirteenth season of SYTYCD with Leon "Kida" Burns and n the process becoming the second winning duo moderator after Ava & Kymberly. Kathi & Karly became the second Vote for the Girls moderator when it was declared that Laura Bretan was the winner of Romani au Talent five days after her America's Got Talent audition aired. As previously mentioned Bria Savage (as Tavon Savage) and Phil Allen became the 11th and 12th winning moderators, respectively. Sophia Williams and Maci Blanca became the winning moderator of the twenty-third season of Dancing with the Stars with Laurie Hernandez and the eleventh season of The Voice with a double moderator victory.

Rule Changes[edit]

The following rule changes were approved for the eighth season (they are both subject to become permanent features or scrapped in the ninth season):

  • For the first time in the site's history, the villians on the red and blue teams can support female contestants as his flex pick in addition to the Vote for the Worst picks, similar to the DWTS rules for the pink and purple teams adopted in the sixth season (the females on the pink and purple team will still respectively support the male and female celebrities in DWTS while the males are not allowed to participate in DWTS and the females are not allowed to particpate in Got Talent). The goal for this rule change is in part of the key females 18-49 demographic.[21]
  • Moderators committing three unsportsmanlike conduct penalties in the same cycle will be automatically ejected from the competition and all his or her supported contestants flexed out and lose a flex pick in addition to participate in the following fall cycle of DWTS and/or SYTYCD. This was in response to Hillary Matthewson committing five personal fouls in one cycle against fellow pink team moderator Perri Johnson without being ejected. This change is being referred to as the "Hillary Matthewson Rule". NoSirGifts officials, however, concede that this new rule would not have ejected Matthewson since she committed personal fouls and not unsportsmanlike conduct penalties.[22]

Additional supported contestant and moderator rule updates made for the eighth season include:[23]

  • Refining what is a reviewable supported contestant, including the following:
    • Contestants involving possession.
    • Contestants involving one's hometown.
    • Contestants governed by the boundary lines of the moderator's home market.
    • Season Administration (which includes correct application of the voting rules, spot of the foul for penalty application, and competition status (running clock, not running clock, end of round/cycle/season)
  • Mandating moderators, as a condition of their moderator agreements on Vote for the Girls, he or she must either live in or relocate to either the Fort Wayne, Indianapolis, or Lafayette, IN market as part of their commitments to Vote for the Girls and/or have an origin where NoSirGifts owns a fantasy television station. This subsequently caused the news staffs at Fort Wayne CBS/independent duopoly (and NoSirGifts flagship station) WTOR/WXXC, Indianapolis CBS affiliate WIFX and Lafayette Fox/CBS duopoly WLIN/WWKI to be respectively shuffled in March 2015, July 2016 and January 2015, resulting in most of the moderator panelists anchoring the weekend editions or the weekday afternoon newscasts. This was adopted in response to Kymberly Alvaraz relocating from Colorado to Indiana in 2014. The following moderators except Ava Zinn, Holly Everman, Hillary Mathewson, Archibald Coolranch, Clark Jones, and Kathi Jameson are part of the news staff at the three NoSirGifts-owned CBS stations:
    • Kymberly Alvaraz and Kendra Ray currently co-anchor the weekend morning newscast for WTOR and WXXC with meteorologist Luka Runecraft.
    • Thia Tola currently anchors WIFX's weekend morning newscast with Bill Delagatto as the meteorologist, who also delivers weather forecasts for WLIN and WWKI.
    • Perri Johnson and Donna Doogan currently co-anchor the weekend evening newscast for WTOR and WXXC.
    • Kye Sanchez and Tavon Savage deliver sports reports for WTOR and WXXC. Tavon Savage was offered the sports director position at WTOR, but declined the job for Vote for the Girls.
    • Phil Allen anchors the weekend sports report for WIFX.
    • Marti McDaniel and Lanise White co-anchor WIFX's midday and afternoon newscasts.
    • Breeanna Sorensen declined the chief meteorologist position at WLIN, but joined WTOR as a meteorologist usually filling in for Lisa Shingleton or Alicia Williams.
    • Tracia Matthewson anchors the weekday afternoon and midday newscasts on WTOR. However, her wife, Hillary, previously anchored on the weekends and currently anchors the morning news on Fort Wayne Fox-owned WINO.
    • Ann Dwyar anchors the weekday morning newscasts on WIFX with long-time WIFX anchor Rick Cortos.
    • Kylie Dwyar anchors the weekday morning newscasts on WTOR with long time WTOR anchor Bob Imperial and Lynne Jackson.
    • Glenn Swaringen anchors the weather segment for the WTOR-produced weekend noon newscast on WXXC and usually filling in for Jillian Gates or Alicia Williams.
    • Rachael Passalt currently anchors the midday newscast on WTOR and WXXC.
    • Karly Jameson hosts her own syndicated talk show that will begin airing in January 2017 with Danni McClannahan as the announcer.


Moderator's Challenge[edit]

A new supported contestant review system (similar to the NFL's instant replay system since the 1999 NFL season) is adopted to aid officiating. :

    • In each competition, each moderator or villain has three challenges that will start a review. Each challenge will require the use of a moderator or villain's flex pick. If the challenge is successful, the flex pick is restored.
  • Inside of the semi-final of each competition, and during all finales, all reviews will be initiated by a Replay Assistant. The Replay Assistant has an unlimited number of reviews, regardless of how many flex picks each moderator or villain has left. And no flex pick will be charged for any review by the Replay Assistant.
    • All supported contestant reviews will be conducted by Zinn on a field-level monitor. A decision will be reversed only when there is indisputable visual evidence to overturn the call. Zinn has 48 hours to review the play.
    • Zinn will be notified of a replay request or challenge via a specialized electronic pager with a vibrating alert. Each moderator would also have a red flag to use as a backup to get the attention of the officials to challenge a play.
    • The replay system will only cover the following situations:
      • Current supported contestant previously won a competition (it is often called the Mannepat Molloy Rule)
      • Judging complete/incomplete/intercepted
      • Decision in regard to an "Alex & Sierra" pick
      • Reinstatement of a previously eliminated contestant

Zinn, along with the producers and legal team, has 48 hours to watch the instant replay of the play and decide if the original call was correct. The producers, legal team, and Zinn must see "incontrovertible visual evidence" for a call to be overturned. If the challenge fails, the original ruling stands and the challenging moderator or villain is penalized by losing a flex pick. If the challenge overrules the previous call, the call is reversed; should there have been an official change of outcome, the outcome will be changed again, resulting in the original outcome and with no loss of a flex pick.

Because of the limited number of challenges, and the possible penalty of a lost flex pick, the moderators and villains typically reserve their challenges for key plays. A questionable call may not be challenged once the next stage of the competition is underway, so he or she may be forced to make a quick decision without the benefit of seeing a replay on television or on the venue's screen. Often the producers will signal to the moderator or villain if they believe the play should be challenged.


If a play is overturned, the official is also responsible for making any related revisions to the game clock if applicable, especially in late, game-ending situations. For instance, if a player makes a reception and runs a long distance, several seconds may run off the game clock. If the play is challenged and the catch overturned, the game clock would be reset to have stopped at the moment of incompletion (presumably adding time back to the clock).

Note that the spot of the ball may be challenged in certain cases. In such cases, a decision to respot the football is not enough to win the challenge; only when the ball is respotted and the ruling on the field is reversed by remeasurement is the challenging team not charged a timeout.

Some unusual, and confusing sequences of events can occur during replay stoppages, and most have been addressed through rules clarifications. For instance, if a team commits a delay of game penalty (before the snap), the opposing team still has the opportunity to challenge, provided it is done before the ensuing snap. Also, inside the two-minute warning, if a team calls a timeout in the normal course of play, but the replay assistant calls for a challenge of that play, the initial timeout is ignored and restored in favor of the replay stoppage.


Moderator's Hall of Fame Nomination and Comeback Picks[edit]

For the first time in the site's history, the male and female moderators will each nominate one previously supported contestant or flex-pick into the web site's Hall of Fame who were previously eliminated at any point in previous competitions in the original season or show.

As the defending moderator champion Ava Zinn and Kymberly Alvaraz will nominate five supported contestants, Lanise White with four (three due to her moderator victory on Dancing with the Stars 22 and one as the runner-up moderator on The Voice 10), and as the runner-up moderators of The Voice 9, Kendra Ray and Tracia Ward will each nominate two.


For the female moderators on the pink and purple team, she can allow one supported female contestant, male flex pick, or male-female duos from any competition within the last five seasons. Meanwhile, the villains on the blue and red team will have the chance to bring a previously boycotted contestant not supported on the site prior to the implementation of flex picks in addition to the supported female contestant, male flex pick, or male-female duos.

The nominated supported contestants were confirmed as follows;

Cite error: Invalid <ref> tag; name "Sophia_.26_Maci_1" defined multiple times with different content Cite error: Invalid <ref> tag; name "Sophia_.26_Maci_1" defined multiple times with different content
  3. Reason for Nomination: At the end of the Moderator Comeback Selections, it was announced that Sophia Williams and Maci Williams would bring back one further Vote for the Girls pick that they had not chosen at the time. Sophia believed that she had made "a huge mistake" at Moderators Comeback by not choosing Brittany Kennell.
  4. 4.0 4.1 Reason for Nomination: Williams believed Billy Gilman deserved to win The Voice 11, but said Blanca had to use two flex picks on Sundance Head and Josh Galllagher because she was previously a moderator of the Dave Della Terza version of Vote for the Worst when Sundance was a contestant on American Idol 6 and at the same time backed the supported contestant from Rhode Island.
  5. Reason for Nomination: Blanca believed Samantha Johnson deserved to be in the final and win America's Got Talent in 2015, but said she was disappointed in the attitudes of the judges and that Johnson was robbed while also taking responsibility for Johnson being in the Dunkin Save.
  6. Reason for Nomination: Williams said she thought McRae would have been in the Top 2 of So You Think You Can Dance with Kida Burns had America not been "complete dick-heads" and thought McRae would win it all by not voting and the same time called Kaizer, Sorensen, and Passalt "complete cocksucers for not using the Moderators Save" upon McRae's third place finish. Williams then told Ava Zinn to reverse the loss at which point Zinn responded, "Sophia, listen. Don't fucking dare tell me what to do". [24]
  7. Reason for Moderator Comeback: Zinn said that she and Alvaraz would have chosen Diaz as a Comeback Artist on The Voice only if the network didn't do that major f**k up on 11/9 (referring to the 2016 Presidential Election).

  9. Reason for Moderator Comeback: Neither Zinn or Alvaraz gave no reason but Alvaraz said it was obvious and effectively backed the supported contestant from Nashville and Las Vegas, though she was confused by the decisions of Alicia Key and Miley Cyrus.
  10. Reason for Moderator Comeback: Alvaraz said that Beth Spangler had more potential back then and still does now and she thought that her Knockout opponent was not connecting with the audience, though Zinn stated that she would have voted for Beth Spangler as Zinn wanted to return "Vote for the Girls" to being a talent competition and fan site.
  11. Reason for Moderator Comeback: Zinn said it was an easy decision and felt that Marrielle Sellars has star potential after watching her American Idol performance.
  12. 12.0 12.1 12.2 12.3 Reason for Nomination: Zinn stated that after five years she had developed strong respect for the female contestants she met when she auditioned for American Idol 11 in Pittsbugh (most notably Erika van Pelt, Crystal Bowersox, and Haley Reinhart). After some consideration, Zinn chose Jessica Sanchez, Haley Reinhart and Lauren Aliana were the better candidates to be in the Hall of Fame.

  14. Reason for Moderator Comeback: Neither gave a reason, though Savage effectively backed the supported contestant from Virginia.

  29. 29.0 29.1 29.2 29.3 Reason for Nomination: Mort stated "The second Vote for the Girls Nominee I've chosen is Audra McClaughlin from The Voice 6," then "Mia Z from The Voice 8" and "Sisaundra Lewis from the Voice 6", implying that Mort wanted to see an all-female Voice finale while at the same time backed the supported contestant from her birth state and the latter two (Sisaundra Lewis and Christian Cuevas) from Floirda.
  30. 30.0 30.1 Reason for Nomination: Gave no reason, though Mort effectively backed the supported contestants from Orlando, Florida. However, as a result of being unable to choose a nominee between Lewis and Cuevas, Mort chose both of them as her fourth nominee with approval from the producers.

  34. Reason for Nomination: Delagatto stated, "I'm doing this for one reason. Kathi & Karly will realize it. Ava will realize it. Luka, Jacqui and Lanise will hate this. Ann & Kylie will like this when his name comes up. As I said, I'm doing this for one reason and the blue team will realize the reason when I mention the name. I have decided to IMPORT The Voice of Brasil season two winner Samuel Alves into the Vote for the Girls Hall of Fame, implying Delagatto wanted to import a victory to the United States. Delagatto then told Kathi Jameson, "There's nothing you can do or say about that, motherfucker."
    Alves' origin in Brazil is a sister city of Delagatto's hometown of Racine, Wisconsin.

Sonia Donbar then interrupted Jones and asked to control Jones stating to him, "Clark, you're in way over your head. This is my fucking call. I'm saying her name for for a reason, and Ava will realize my decision when I say it. The third and final Moderator Comeback pick is," Sonia Donbar hits her button and then says "Clara Hong from The Voice 7" as the Donbars believed that Hong had more potential and the audience booed both Ben and Sonia.

Controversies[edit]

Sophia & Maci The Voice 11 Picks[edit]

On December 5, 2016, the site sparked major controversy when Sophia Williams and Maci Blanca used two flex picks on both Sundance Head and Josh Gallagher. With Tavon Savage's picks of Aaron Gibson and Brendan Fletcher and Sophia & Maci's picks of We McDonald, Billy Gilman, Christian Cuevas, Ali Caldwell–the three latter were already chosen as flex picks with Gilman flexed from Phil Allen and Cuevas and Caldwell were cross-flexed from Peta-Alyce and Nadia, but Blanca appeared to change her mind while making her decision. When it was announced Josh Gallagher was the fourth finalist, the producers were unaware of Gallagher being Williams & Blanca's flex pick and buzzed and Ava Zinn said "Woah! Woah! Woah! No! No!" Zinn then asked the producers to review Sophia & Maci's flex pick, to which the producers saw "incontrovertible visual evidence" that Gallagher was chosen as a flex pick at 7:59:57 PM on The Voice 11 Semi-Final Performance Night, resulting in the call overturned, resulting in Williams and Blanca getting the "double moderator victory". Zinn then stated that to Savage and his boyfriend, Devin Martin, "Had Aaron and Brendan not been eliminated, you would have been disqualified." The other moderators scalded the decision made by the public when it came to deciding that night's elimination, in which Ali Caldwell was declared the female runner-up and We McDonald was declared the female winner of The Voice 11.[31] Template:VFTG USA 8 Spring Controversies
