Gwen, Pharrell, Adam and Blake were back at it for another evening of spaceship-chair-turning insanity on The Voice Season 7 Episode 4 Tuesday night.

What contestants impressed them enough to land a spot on one of their rosters in this season's fourth Blind Auditions love-fest? Let's take a look, shall we?

Toia Jones - One and Only (The Voice Auditon)
Toia Jones' audition for The Voice, in which she sang "One and Only," was epic.

Toia Jones, with a powerful rendition of “One and Only,” landed on Team Pharrell, and her tone, talent and personality could make her one of the season's gems.

Somehow, this girl was only a two-chair turn, but watch out for this one.

Chris Jamison, whose take on John Mayer's “Gravity” earned him a spot on Team Adam despite Levine's comment that Chris did too much with his voice, was impressive.

He's got a great back story and good looks to go along with talent, too.

Amanda Lee Peers' spin on “Put the Gun Down” won her a shirt from Team Gwen, who was surprisingly the only person to turn around. But it only takes that many.

On The Voice Season 7 Episode 3, more aspiring singers left their hearts on the stage as they vied for spots on one of the four celebrity coaches' rosters.

The Blind Auditions continued (as we were reminded constantly on screen with the random #BlindsContinue Twitter hashtag) on Monday, with a twist:

One of the contestants was actually blind!

Blessing Offor - Just the Two of Us (The Voice Audition)
Blind since childhood, Blessing Offor can't see that his soulful blind audition, "Just the Two of Us," has all four coaches turned around to see him.

Blessing Offor was a bit uneven through the first two-thirds of “Just the Two of Us,” but his charisma and raw talent got all four chairs to turn.

He was a Blessing to watch on TV, with his positivity as well as his take on the classic song, but he has work to do when he joins Team Pharrell.

Meanwhile Jessie Pitts' rendition of “The Story” earned a spot on Team Gwen, although like Blessing, it's unclear if this is flash in the pan or next level talent.

Ricky Manning, who sang “Love Me Again,” joins Blessing on Team Pharrell, which is quickly becoming the Island of Misfit Toys of aspiring vocalists.

On The Voice Season 7 Episode 2, more aspiring singers battled for spots on one of the celebrity coaches' rosters, showcasing their unique vocal stylings.

As we saw on The Voice Season 7 Episode 1 the night before, no one who tries out for this show is bad in the least, but it's still tough to make it through.

While Adam Levine and Blake Shelton have multiple titles and have the experience, Pharrell Williams and Gwen Stefani totally know what they're doing.

Here's a look at who earned a spot on one of the fab four's respective rosters ...

Maiya Sykes - Stay With Me (The Voice Audition)
Maiya Sykes has four coaches turned around after her blind audition take on "Stay With Me."

Mayia Sykes got everyone to turn around with "Stay with Me" within moments, giving her the choice of whichever coach she wanted. Pharrell Williams got the nod!

Joining Mayia on Team Pharrell will be DaNica Shirey, the mother of an adorable 4-year-old who shared her emotional story about losing her father to cancer.

She stunned the judges with a performance of "Big White Room," but went with Pharrell over Gwen and Adam. Taylor Phelan, and his take on "Sweater Weather," will join them!

Joe Kirk got Adam and Gwen to turn almost immediately for his cover of “Lego House,” followed by Blake and Pharrell! However, Adam won him over and won his services.

Gwen Stefani and Pharrell Williams made their debuts on The Voice Season 7 premiere Monday night, joining Adam Levine and Blake Shelton on the panel.

Pharrell and Gwen take over for Cee Lo Green and Christina Aguilera in those swiveling spaceship chairs that have made the NBC competition a huge hit.

The question is: Would you turn your chair for these two new judges?

The Voice Season 7 Coaches

The Voice has enjoyed a changing roster of judges since its 2011 beginnings, with Shakira and Usher joining Adam and Blake for Seasons 4 and 6.

This fall has a new lineup, though, and it seems like another success.

Stefani and Pharrell, beyond their infectious hit songs, come across about as likable as popular musicians get, and last night's show was no exception.

Did it seem like they were born to judge The Voice, or was it just us?

The Voice Season 7 Episode 1 introduced us to two new celebrity coaches, along with the first crop of singers vying for a spot on NBC via the Blind Auditions.

As always, auditioning blind meant not only vying for a spot on the show if you're the singer, but competing for a singer if you're one of the coaches!

If multiple coaches turned around, it was up to the people auditioning to make their choice, leading to a lot of witty banter as well as some tense moments.

Here's a look at the would-be contenders and how they fared:

Luke Wade - That's How Strong My Love Is (The Voice Audition)
Luke Wade wows The Voice coaches with a stirring and talented rendition of "That's How Strong My Love Is."

Luke Wade, a soul singer who has traveled the world with his band for the past several years, wowed all of the judges with his version of “How Strong My Love Is.”

He ended up going with Pharrell over each of the other three.

Clara Hong, meanwhile, got Gwen to get up on stage with her and sing, which is almost as amazing as the fact that she ended up picking Adam after that!

Maroon 5 rocker and The Voice coach Adam Levine is straight up amped about contestant Luke Wade in a sneak peek from the Season 7 premiere of the NBC hit.

So much so, he channels his inner Tom Cruise, with Wade his Katie Holmes.

Levine, 35, couldn't help but get up and stand on his swiveling spaceship chair before the contestant even had a chance to hit the song's closing notes.

Safe to say that Adam hit his buzzer, along with his three other celebrity coaches.

"I only wish I could be higher up!" Adam says. "I want to swing from the rafters!

"I want to sing from the mountaintops!"

Leave it to his BFF Blake Shelton to knock him down about 10 pegs with a classic retort: "That's because you are high right now. Sit down and let us talk."

Taylor Swift is headed to NBC.

The artist, whose latest single has hit number-one, will act as an advisor on the upcoming season of The Voice.

This is the same capacity in which Coldplay singer Chris Martin served on Season 6, as he took contestants across all four teams under his talented wing and offered them advice.

Swift will be working with panelists Adam Levine and Blake Shelton, as well as new coaches Gwen Stefani and Pharrell Williams this fall.

Not only was Josh Kaufman crowned champion on The Voice results show last night, he got to perform with Robin Thicke and help "Get Her Back."

As the owner of one of the best voices in the business, it's no surprise that Thicke was asked to sing on the finale alongside eventual winner Kaufman.

The sexy, plaintive song choice - clearly an ode to Robin's estranged wife Paula Patton - was an interesting choice, however, as the duet with Josh:

While "Get Her Back" clearly holds deeper meaning for Robin than Josh, it was all about Kaufman Tuesday, and two looked to be having a great time together.

Thicke's voice was near perfect, as was Kaufman's, proving why the last surviving member of Team Usher was named The Voice after an epic Season 6.

Once you got past the lyrics, Josh stunned with his range, emotions and talent, holding his own with Robin and leaving us hoping for a future collaboration.

Check out more performances from The Voice season finale, including songs by Ed Sheeran, Tim McGraw and Josh's fellow finalists, after the jump:

The Voice Season 6 closed out Tuesday on NBC with an epic results show featuring performances by Ed Sheeran, Tim McGraw, Robin Thicke and OneRepublic.

Yet not even they could not outshine the real star of the night: the winner.

Who Won The Voice?
The Voice Season 6 champion is crowned in May 2014. Who won it all?

Christina Grimmie (Team Adam), Josh Kaufman (Team Ursher) and Jake Worthington (Team Blake) each made coaches' chairs swivel during the blind auditions.

They consistently brought the competition to its knees, and the crowd to its feet, during multiple weeks of do-or-die battles and high-stakes playoff performances.

They brought out the votes of America early and often throughout the spring.

But there could be only one The Voice. Results? Follow the jump to see ...
