Do contestants with connections to the rich and famous have the upper hand on The Voice? Some critics allege that the singing competition is rigged in favor of the Cuoco family, with Briana receiving unfair attention simply because she happens to be Kaley Cuoco’s sister. What do Kaley and Briana think of these rumors?
Briana Cuoco’s bid to win The Voice and join her sister as a big-shot entertainer has proven fairly successful thus far. The singer managed to impress Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green, both of whom turned their chairs around in order to clamor for the famous sibling’s attention.
But did Christina and Cee Lo really turn around because they liked Briana Cuoco’s voice? Or is this some big conspiracy intended to ensure that the sibling of a famous actress win it all? There’s been a ton of nasty rumors surrounding Briana and her sister, many of which claim that the contest is rigged in the Cuocos’ favor.
The other day, Briana and Kaley Cuoco took to Twitter to deny the gossip. Kaley staunchly defended her sister with the following post: “FYI last nights #TheVoice was NOT rigged because I’m @bricuoco sis. She made it ON HER OWN 100%. It’s called BLIND AUDITIONS for a reason.”
Briana also weighed in on the controversy, tweeting, “I knew the ‘rigged’ issue would come w/ this incredible opportunity. It stung for a minute & now I choose to forget it & move on.”
