Yes, but it is a bad idea.
There are very rarely good grounds.
It is really designed for people the defendant recognises.
An unreasonable or frivolous objection would be dismissed and then the jury has a negative impression before the case has even begun.
Can I clarify anything for you?
Well, there are lots of counsel with poor judgement. Just because it is a bad idea doesn't mean that people won't do it.
In fairness, usually we all find out that things are bad ideas because we do them and they blow up in our faces.
I suppose that there could be objection.
But the problem would be that the judge would want to know the grounds and unless it is something like a recognition it wouldn't succeed.
Unless, of course, the Judge got it wrong too which is regular enough
are you ready now?
