The Vocea României show has reached the stage of duels, where judges Tudor Chirilă, Smiley and Theo Rose, Irina Rimes and Denis will choose half of the contestants and keep only those they think deserve to continue.

In this context, the representation of two candidates from the team of Irina Rimes aroused controversy among the jurors. Tudor Chirilă, Smiley and Theo Rose but also Denis leaned more towards Magda, whom they considered better, compared to her competitor.

The only one who did not share the opinion of the other jurors was even the girls’ mentor, Irina Rimes, the artist being of the opinion that Alexandrina Vlad is the one who stood out the most from a vocal point of view. . This decision drew criticism from Irina even from the jurors. Tudor Chirilă brought her colleague’s attention to the fact that she was uninspired in her decision, and Smiley was the most strident in stating that she had made an “unfair” decision.

Coaches have to choose who sings better, it seems a bit unfair to me to choose the one who is easier to work with.” Smiley mentioned the gesture of Irina Rimes towards the candidates of Vocea României.

Denis from The Motans was and is of the opinion that Irina Rimes was not equidistant in her choice.

I would have chosen Magda, of course. I think the first impression of the auditions mattered more to Irina, I think from there Irina started being unequal towards the girls.”, mentions Denis.

Irina Rimes justified her choice by saying that what she had done was a strategy to keep the two contestants in the competition.

When I made the choice, the strategy I adopted from the start was to keep two good voices in the competition, I knew that if I didn’t choose Magda, one of my colleagues would choose her. I knew if I chose Alexandrina, Magda would move on.” said Irina Rimes.

The jurors gave another chance to Magda who, to stay in the competition, would have had to be chosen from another team, which happened.
