The Voice Recap: Blind Auditions, Take Four

by at . Comments

It's episode four of The Voice's blind auditions, with Adam Levine, Cee Lo Green, Christina Aguilera and Blake Shelton back in their red-spinning spaceship chairs yet again.

How much fun is this show?

American Idol likes to tout its star-creating power, and The Voice may not have an answer to that until it produces its own Kelly Clarkson ... or even a Scotty McCreery.

Still, it remains a far more entertaining show in many respects, from the diversity of the vocalists trying out, to the rapport between the judges and the unique format. 

Who got the stars to turn around Monday and joined Teams Adam, Cee Lo, Blake and Xtina? Let's break down the performances of Monday's Voice aspirants, by team:

Team Adam Levine

Mathai, who covered Adele (never a bad choice nowadays), showed creativity, stage presence and raw vocal talent. Adam was lucky to land this hot commodity.

Adam also snagged Nicolle Galyon, who wants to be the first country music piano girl. She sounds great, despite her obvious problem with nerves. Take a look:

Karla Davis and those two join previous team members Tony Lucca, Kim Yarbrough, Angel Taylor, Pip, Katrina Parker, Chris Cauley and Nathan Parrett.

Team Blake Shelton

Naia Kete is a street performer. Literally, she sings on the street. She'll get a chance to perform in grander venues after this rendition of "The Lazy Song."

Charlotte Sometimes has a great name, and possibly an even greater voice, as she proved with her take on "Apologize." Watch her do her thing below:

Blake also got Jordan Rager and ALyX (yup, spelled that way) to join RaeLynn, Gwen Sebastian, Jermaine Paul, Erin Willett, Joris Unga and Brian Fuente.

Team Cee Lo Green

No other coach wanted Tony Vincent, the Broadway star, or Justin Hopkins, the former member of Carson Daly's band. But you only need one! Here's Tony:

Those two may not have what it takes, but Cee Lo may know better than we do. Jamie Lono (below) may have been his best addition Monday, though:

That trio now takes its place alongside Juliet Simms, Jamar Rogers, Angie Johnson, Sarah Golden, Erin Martin and James Massone on Team Cee Lo.

Team Christina Aguilera

Christina picked up Jonathas and Monique Benabou quickly Monday. The coaches said Jonathas's "U Got It Bad" sounded exactly like Usher Agree?

Ashley de la Rosa and Anthony Evans also impressed Christina enough to earn a place on her squad. Here's a look at Anthony's "What's Going On" ...

Her team is now comprised of those newbies, Jesse Campbell, Chris Mann, The Line, Lindsey Pavao, Geoff McBride and Moses Stone.

Did anyone notice that Jordi Unga was also a contestant on the show Rock Star : INXS?

i think many of the contestant are really great singers it's just my opinon that JORDIS UNGA should win this, she is a true talent it would be a crime for the world not to know who this woman is or hear her sing. No offence to all the other contestants but i watched jordis back in 2005 on another singing competition and i just think she truly has a gift and it would be such a shame for the world not to get to experience her voice.

Jonathas, Jamar, Mathai, and Sarah Hill! One of these needs to be the winner!

I love this show but, I have a problem with Blake Shelton having to say b*****d every time someone else turns their chair around it is unneccessary, and all the sexual coments made by Celo Green. If anyone was interviewing for a job any where else this would be concidered sexual harrassment his comment to Christina was just disrespectful and all uncalled for, the show is wonderfully entertaining without all the cursing and crude comments.

Plenty great raw talent to root for. This is going to be a tight fight right to the finale! It is hard for me to pick a winner at the moment....I need more music to my ears! Loved Mathai....a star is born!

Christina Aguilera Quotes

It's kind of hilarious! I've never fit into an E-cup before. I look at my husband and go, 'Guess what size this bra is?' And when I tell him, he's just amazed. We keep the tags that prove it, to look back for memory's sake!

Oh, my God, candy! I had a huge craving for candy toward the end of the pregnancy, from Starbursts to Skittles. I actually took a picture of myself with my big belly in a little lingerie top, surrounded by bowls of the candy I like
