Welcome to the third part of blind auditions for The Voice.
Judges Christina Aguilera, Blake Shelton, Cee Lo Green and Adam Levine each continued to try and round out their teams with the best possible contestants, and tonight's show started by giving us a taste of their job.
A 27-year-old mystery girl was the first to audition, and cameras wouldn't let us see her face or know her name until she finished singing her rendition of Lady Gaga's "You and I" on the guitar. Well, did anyone press their buttons?
Yup! In fact, Blake and Cee Lo fought for Sarah Golden, an "honest" singer with a slight twang. After some back and forth, it was Cee Lo's "inappropriate" comment about Sarah not being able to handle both him and Shelton that caused her to choose Green.
Nineteen-year-old, Pip. Cool name, right? Besides his name, and bow tie, another cool factor was his voice. The young fresh face had the singing voice of an old soul, and that caused every single judge to turn around. Can you imagine how heated it got?
Low blows were going left and right. Blake tried to persuade Pip with the fact that he'd be the only guy in his group. Christina said she'd focus all her time and attention on him, "Fight for yo ass!" Adam brought out his winning track record, and surprisingly, Cee Lo didn't say much. So who'd Pip pick?
Levine, for the win!
Erin Willett, 22, brought out our emotional side after sharing that her father and closest friend (and singing partner) was diagnosed with stage four pancreatic cancer. Well, now she can sing her heart out for daddy with Blake, who chose her to be part of his team.
Thirty-four-year-old Katrina Parker must love Carson Daly for ambushing her with a Voice auditions invitation at her cubicle, because this lady wow'ed Adam and will now be competing for a shot at the title.
Don't let the shades fool you. Geoff McBride, 51, was not trying to be "cool," (the sunglasses are because of an eye injury), but his voice did catch the attention of both Christina (finally!) and Cee Lo. But Green's last minute decision got Geoff choosing Xtina, instead. Whoops!
Then came a "wonderful creature of a woman," as Cee Lo put it. Erin Martin, 28, a model turned singer gave a very interesting and alluring rendition of "Hey There Delilah" (kinda reminded us of season one's Dia Frampton) which caused both Shelton and Green to turn around. Yes, she was also extremely beautiful. Cee Lo was one very happy man, because this "Egyptian warrior princess" chose him.
Time for more Kleenex. James Massone, 23, works at his dad's auto body repair shop in Boston, but really wanted out. After singing "Find Your Lovin'" he had his chance. Shelton, Green and Aguilera all turned their chairs, which got Massone super emotional (and, in turn, we did, too). Yeah, Cee Lo won again.
Levine and Green both battled for 27-year-old Chris Cauley who gave a very "smooth" rendition of "Grenade," and for once Cee Lo wasn't the singer's choice! Can you believe it? Welcome to Team Adam, Chris.
Christina snagged the first ever MC on The Voice, Moses Stone. Think he can hang with all the other vocalists? Guess we'll have to wait and find out.
Save the soul for last? Jordis Unga was the last singer we heard on tonight's episode, and it was well worth the wait. The 29-year-old brought out the sound we were all waiting for with her intensity and high raspy notes. Cee Lo, Christina and Blake all wanted her, and we couldn't blame them (we don't know what was going on with Adam). Our gut told us she would go with Xtina, but nope. Jordis went with Blake.
But blind auditions aren't over yet.
