The winner of season 15 of The Voice is not who the internet thought that it would be. Chevel Shepherd from team Kelly Clarkson took home the trophy. The country singer beat out Team Blake Shelton’s Kirk Jay and Chris Kroeze, and Team Jennifer Hudson’s Kennedy Holmes.
And then the Twitter uproar began. Some fans saw hints of racism in the final results, as both remaining black contestants wound up in those third and fourth slots. Online the most vocal support was for Kennedy.
Here is a sampling of what Twitter had to say about the results:
Actor Josh Henderson has been cleared of all charges! Henderson won’t face charges in connection with a burglary at his neighbor’s Studio City home, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced Tuesday.
The case was declined due to insufficient evidence and surveillance footage of Henderson’s unit shows that he never left his apartment that night. So glad that was all cleared up!
Colton Hayes and his divorce from Jeff Leatham is back on! The two wed in an epic October 2017 ceremony, with Kris Jenner officiating. Colton filed for divorce in May.
The case ceased to move forward for the past seven months, as they sparked reconciliation rumors. The Blast, however, says Jeff just filed papers with the court last week indicating he has served Haynes with a preliminary declaration of disclosure (basically, all the financial stuff).
47-year-old Leatham met 30-year-old Haynes through mutual friend Serena Williams and started dating shortly after the actor came out publicly.
The second season hasn’t even arrived yet, but Netflix has already announced that Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is getting another 16 episodes, spread across two more seasons. Production on the new installments will kick off in 2019.
