'The Voice' Hit With Voting Scandal

Carson Daly had a tough job on Wednesday night as The Voice host started out the show by telling viewers that their text and online votes didn't count in this week's elimination due to irregularities.

Daly revealed the voting scandal as Jason George, the British CEO of vote-tallying firm Telescope, stood by him and assured the singing competition show's audience at home, "We quickly identified the problem and were able to take steps to make sure it doesn't reoccur."

The host added, "Here's the good news. Telescope certifies that removing those votes did not effect the outcome."

But despite all that, the show must go on! The Voice judges Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Usher and Shakira moved on and whittled down the contestants from 16 to 12.

We sure hope Telescope doesn't run into this issue again as the company has also provided vote-counting services for FOXs American Idol, So You Think You Can Dance and X Factor.
What do you think? Should The Voice viewers demand a recount?
