The Voice Recap: James Irwin Returns, Wins Night Four of Blind Auditions

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Night four of The Voice blind auditions proved that sometimes, the second time is the charm, while even a gifted talent doesn't guarantee a spot on NBC.

Who blew away Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green and Blake Shelton last night after failing to turn a single chair one season ago?

Who else landed spots with the fab four of The Voice? Here's a look at the singers who successfully gained entry into the next round last night ...

James Irwin didn't do much for the coaches last season. This time, with is performance of the R.E.M. classic “Losing My Religion,” it was a different story.

Returning with newfound confidence and much more stage presence, Irwin had his pick of coaches, but went with the only one to point out weaknesses: Adam.

Will Champlin, with a stirring performance of “Not Over You,” had all three male coaches pining for him. He went with Adam as well, a coup for the singer.

Stephanie Anne Johnson, with a performance of “Black Horse and the Cherry Tree,” landed on Team Christina. But Cee Lo is already looking to steal.

Sam Cerniglia sang “It’s a Beautiful Day” and the Michael Buble song was a hit with Blake, whose team he joined. Cee Lo also turned around for Sam.

Olivia Henken had Cee Lo and Christina vying for her services with a strong spin on “Two Black Cadillacs,” and Aguilera eventually won her over.

R. Anthony would love to be standing in the “Hall of Fame” himself one day, and took the first step last night, opting for Cee Lo over Christina Aguilera.

Justin Chain only got one chair to turn around on “She’s Country,” but one is all it takes, as Blake clearly liked his take on the Jason Aldean song.

Ashley DuBose turned all four chairs with “Diamonds,” channeling Rihanna in tremendous fashion and picking Levine despite near unanimous begging.

Keaira LaShae also landed with Green, while Aguilera recruited Amber Nicole, and Shelton seized Emily Randolph to finish off night four of Season 5.

That leaves Levine and Aguilera with 10 singers each, while Shelton and Green both have nine. Which contestants picked the right or wrong coaches?

Who's got the best team so far, and who's been your favorite singer throughout the blind auditions this season? Sound off in the comments below.
