The Voice 2013 coaches under fire for missing out on Bronwen Lewis

The Voice 2013 coaches have come under fire for letting so many good singers miss out on this year's series.

Saturday night saw the final blind audition show of the series, and it was a tense one.

Will.i.am ended up as the last coach to finish his line up, and passed on a number of performers before waiting to turn for the last one, CJ Edwards.

But many viewers weren't too happy with his decision to take a gamble and miss out on some talented performers.

Welsh singer Bronwen Lewis was one of those to miss her chance to make it through, performing when only Will and Jessie had spots left in her team.

Many fans of the show reckon that Bronwen gave the best performance of the night, and we find it hard to believe anyone doesn't think she's better than at least some of the artists who have made it through.

Sir Tom Jones and Danny O'Donoghue were also annoyed, with Sir Tom remarking: "That girl, I wish I had another spot on my team for her.”

But the show's format at this stage of the competition means that such talented budding performers do miss out, causing viewers to suggest changes for next year.

They could include allowing each coach to pick an extra wildcard act of all the singers who were rejected.

It's certainly hard to deny that, come the end of the auditions, the format does seem to struggle.

The odds are very much in favour of those who perform earlier in the process, compared to those at the end who may only have one coach who can actually turn around.

But being all about The Voice, should not all the acts have a fair and equal opportunity?
