The Voice Recap: Making Adam's Dreams Come True

by at .  Updated at . Comments

After a strong Season 4 premiere, The Voice ran it back for another two hours of blind auditions Monday night. Who got the coaches to turn around?

Let's get right down to business, shall we?

Garret Gardner, who was turned away on the show last year at 16, put to work Shelton's constructive criticism on his cover of "Seven Nation Army."

He was snapped up by Shakira shortly after.

Shelton and Levine fought over country artists Holly Tucker, 19, of Waco, Texas (she picked Shelton), and handsome crooner Warren Stone of Hannah, S.C.

"I am so ignited by what you've just done," his new coach said of Stone's cover of "Colder Weather." "The second you uttered a few notes, I knew."

That new coach, surprisingly, was Levine.

He added of stealing Shelton's country thunder, something he's fantasized about doing for some time, "My dream has come true! I've finally done it."

Miami's Monique Abbadie, a child star who appeared on the Spanish-language variety show Sabado Gigante, sang Shakira's hit "Loca," and landed on her team.

Introverted indie rocker Michelle Chamuel, the lead singer of the Michigan-based band Ella Riot, charmed with a nerd-punk version of Katy Perry's "I Kissed A Girl."

She went on to choose Usher has her mentor.

Also making the grade and landing a spot on The Voice Season 4? Young singer Taylor Beckham, rocker Karina Igelsias, and a duo, The Swon Brothers.

Who do you think was the best Monday night?

no offense but i think putting Shakira on the Voice3 was a mistake. What about Pink?? i think she would have been a better choice
