The Voice Season 4 kicked off with an awesome performance by Shakira, Usher, Blake Shelton and Adam Levine, and didn't lose any momentum from there.
After the coaches came together on "Come Together," they stayed together, bantering and competing for the talented singers who gave it their all.

Kris Thomas, a pastor's son who signed a record deal and lost it after college, recounted a story of nearly driving his car into a house while intoxicated.
He then wowed the coaches with his take on Whitney Houston's "Saving All My Love for You," sounding every bit like the late superstar herself.
