Taeyeon's elimination from second round on "Hidden Singer 3" sparked the ire of many of its viewers and the show is now receiving heated criticism. The complaint is couched on the fact that Taeyeon sang a group song (Girls' Generation's "Gee") instead of a solo track. Fans also noted that Taeyeon didn't even have a huge singing part for "Gee" since most of it was given to Tiffany.

In the midst of the outrage, the production crew addressed the complaints. Producer Jo Seung Wook said reminded viewers that the show is not intended to identify which singer sings best, and neither was it created to distinguish fake and real singers. It was a show wherein viewers can enjoy artists' contributions to the music industry. That said, the producers picked a song Taeyeon sang with Girls' Generation and TaeTiSeo, one of which being "Gee", since it is one of the defining tracks of Taeyeon's career.  

The producer said that the first and second rounds of the show are admittedly very difficult parts for the original singers. "Singers narrowly get through the rounds. It's like that because... there's only such a short time for them to be judged by [100 people on the set]."

Moreoever, the producer asked the audience for some understanding.

Producer Jo Seung Wook said that being eliminated on the show is not dishonorable. Even Jo Sung Mo and Shin Seung Hoon were voted out. To comment on Jo Sung Mo, the producer explained that while his voice has improved now, viewers were still unable to separate him from how he sounded in the past.

To avoid trouble and complaints, the producer said that idol group members will no longer participate in "Hidden Singer 3".

What do you guys think about the producer's decision? Do you think the fans' complaints were justified?
