During NBC’s hit singing show "The Voice" last night, one of the show’s co-hosts Adam Levine muttered, “I hate this country” after one of his team members, country music singer Amber Carrington, was “saved by America.”
His remark was captured by a hot mic while the cameras focused on country music star Blake Shelton.
Shelton’s team of three country singers remained.
Levine tweeted several dictionary entries on Twitter this morning, attempting to clarify his remarks:
joke-noun1.something said or done to provoke laughter or cause amusement, as a witticism, a short and amusing anecdote, or prankish act
hu·mor·less (hymr-ls) adj. 1. Lacking a sense of humor. 2. Said or done without humor
light·heart·ed Function: adjective 1 : free from care, anxiety, or seriousness : happy-go-lucky 2 : cheerfully optimistic
mis·un·der·stand Pronunciation: \(ˌ)mi-ˌsən-dər-ˈstand\ Date: 13th century 1 : to fail to understand 2 : to interpret incorrectly
Levine had a bad night, as voters cut his team members Judith Hill and Sarah Simmons from the show. His remark, however, was prompted by the success of one of his team members — strengthening his case that he was only joking.
However, he may have been reacting poorly as voters chose to save his country star first, leaving his R&B singer and rock singer behind.
