NBC "The Voice" Team Blake

Read on for more details.

Wendy Moten Fell On The Stage

After a performance with Team Blake, Wendy Moten took a scary fall on the stage. Her teammates stopped to help her up and were soon joined by Shelton to make sure she was okay.

A minute later, staff members had to assist Moten off the stage and Carson Daly announced that he would have an update for the audience as soon as possible.

Later, Moten took the stage with Daly to let everyone know she was okay.

“Yes, I’m okay! A little bruised, but I’m good. I’m still ready to go!” Moten told Daly.

Fans were worried about Wendy, but others thought there was something strange about the fall.

“Is Wendy high #TheVoice,” one person tweeted.

Another wrote, “@jim_utter is this just a publicity stunt? I really don’t think she belongs on ‘Voice’ because she has had almost 30 years as a professional backup singer and the other contestants don’t have Wendy’s years of singer.”

When it was announced that Moten was fine, fans expressed their relief.

“OMGG WENDY IS SUCH A CHAMP #TheVoice,” one tweet reads.

Another wrote, “Yayyyyyyy Wendy is OK!!! #TheVoice #VoiceTop11.”

Some Fans Think Moten’s Presence Is Unfair

Wendy Moten is a singer who has been performing since the 1990s. She had a single called “Come In Out of the Rain” chart in the UK in 1994. It also peaked at number 5 on the adult contemporary charts in 1993.

She later sang backup vocals for Tim McGraw and Faith Hill on their tours from 2005 through 2018. According to her website, Moten also toured with Martina McBride and Vince Gill.

Moten has released six studio albums and one EP.

Many fans have taken to social media to express that they think Moten’s presence in the competition is unfair to the other contestants, who are not professional singers.

“with all due respect why was Wendy allowed on #thevoice she has way too much experience and doesn’t need coaching. Baffling,” one person tweeted.
