I've known Hey Monday way before the voice but I don't think it gives her an unfair advantage. Like someone else said Juliet Simms got 2nd place and she's in automatic loveletter (love them btw) and there's joe Kirkland from artist vs. poets also. Just because they might have toured and opened up or bigger bands doesn't mean that it an unfair advantage because they're still trying to get signed and notice like everyone else. Talent is talent whether you have experience or not. A lot of contestants have bands or had bands. Just because they didn't go on tour doesn't mean they have less experience. I don't think she has an unfair advantage at all.
She doesn't have any kind of advantage in my opinion. Yes she toured with Fall Out Boy, but what about the guys who toured as child stars, or the ones that play at bars and clubs or county fairs. She only got on that tour because Pete thought she had talent. She obviously isn't Kobe caliber or else she would already have a deal and label and wouldn't need to be on the show.
I've actually met Cassadee Pope during one of her shows near where I live, she'd been touring with Never Shout Never, she is an amazing singer with great stage presence. As to having an unfair advantage, I do not believe so. I've seen a few on the voice where well...their voice completely blew me away. It is obvious many of these competitors can perform right along side her and not skip a beat. Natural talent is natural talent it doesn't matter whether the person has experience or not, this show is about finding the best out of those voices and making their dreams come true. As to the Kobe Bryant comparison, in the singing world that would be as if Christina herself , Faith Hill, or Whitney Houston came onto the show to get a second chance. It is completely over the top to compare those scenarios. Cassadee Pope toured with Fallout Boy, they did not tour with her, her band was not the lead act. Her band was "trying" to get up and going. Hardly Kobe Bryant caliber as of yet.
I agree with Alexis. This show is about discovering new, unexpected talent. It's like having a show about who can shoot a basketball the best and having Kobe Bryant audition over person "A" who shoots around at home. The Voice is turning into dancing with the stars. Nothing but a bunch a "d-listers" trying to regain a spark by blowing away raw, untested talent.
The show is based on talent not experience. She is not the only person on this show to play with fall out boy or other well known music acts.
Juliet Simms of the first season for one and Joe Kirkland of this season have as well. Why should it matter now? And why does it only matter when it comes to Cassadee Pope?
